Tune of the Day: Leaving Lismore

Traditional Scottish tune

This Scottish pipe tune is also a popular song tune:

Tears fill my eyes as swift the boat flies
And speeds me away so far from your shore
As quiet you sleep in dreams that are sweet
My dear island home Lismore.

Lismore (Lios Mòr in Gaelic) is an island of the Inner Hebrides in Loch Linnhe, on the west coast of Scotland.

When set in 3/4 waltz time, this tune also goes by the name Valse Ecossaise, which is French for “Scottish Waltz“.
