1
It was up in Nova Scotia
With a band of pipers blowing
Moving into Pictu Harbor

chorus
She come sailing in the fog.
She come sailing in the fog.
Sail away, sail away.
Sail away, sail away.
Sail away, sail away, hey, hey.
And the lonely sound of the bagpipes on the bay.

2
With a hundred and eighty clansmen,
And their homes so far behind them
And the island stood before them.

chorus

3
From the Nova Scotian forest
Come the gently rolling farmland
That rolls to the foaming ocean

chorus
