From E! Online:

“The Main Title sequence of Outlander is an adaptation of my favorite Scottish folk tune, ‘The Skye Boat Song,'” composer Bear McCreary said of the now iconic tune. “I’ve always adored this piece, and felt its well-known lyrical connection to the Jacobite Uprising would make it appropriate for this show. I struggled to connect with the more famous lyrics by Sir Harold Boulton, however. Thankfully, vocalist Raya Yarbrough recalled another set of lyrics by Robert Louis Stevenson, which were much better suited to Claire’s story.  After we altered a few consonants to change the gender of the speaker, they connected even more directly. This lyric video allows these words to shine as it takes us back in time with Claire on her journey.”
