            Capo 5


[Chorus]
       C
Ill ya ho, boys, let him go, boys
          G7                  F
Heave her head round into the weather
       C
Ill ya ho, boys, let him go, boys
        G7               C
Sailing homeward to Mingulay


[Verse 1]
          C
What care we how white the Minch is?
          G7                  F
What care we, boys, for windy weather?
        C
When we know that every inch is
          G7               C
Close, so homeward to Mingulay


[Chorus]
       C
Ill ya ho, boys, let him go, boys
          G7                  F
Heave her head round into the weather
       C
Ill ya ho, boys, let him go, boys
        G7               C
Sailing homeward to Mingulay

[Verse 2]
          C
Wives are waiting at the pier head
       G7               F
Gazing seaward from the heather
          C
Heave her head round and we'll anchor
        G7               C
Ere the sun sets on Mingulay


[Chorus]
       C
Ill ya ho, boys, let him go, boys
          G7                  F
Heave her head round into the weather
       C
Ill ya ho, boys, let him go, boys
        G7               C
Sailing homeward to Mingulay
        G7               C
Sailing homeward to Mingulay
