From what little info that you have provided, this is my best guess.

The fans of the TV show may be more familiar with the version recorded by  Laura Creamer a session singer in LA expressly for the Episode HOMELAND. This version of the song as it aired in the episode HOMELAND has been the single most asked about and sought after piece of music ever used in "Highlander-The Series"! And by overwhelming demand was included on the CD Highlander The Series Volume II Music & Songs from Season 4 & 5 composed by Roger Bellon.
Highlander-The Series Volume II

A bit of trivia - Laura is the model for the immortal on the cover of this CD.

This song was to become a trademark melody during Season 5 and Season 6 of Highlander The Series, often being used during flashback sequences. A new and more traditional arrangement of this song was choosen for the touching and dramatic final montage scenes in the last TV episode "Not To Be" 97613-119.

Laura performs 2 other songs on this CD. Heart Come Back which was heard in the episode METHOS in season 3, as well as Sorceress Adagio from the PHROPHECY episode.

The Lyrics
Music and lyrics traditional; arranged and adapted
by Roger Bellon and sung by Laura Creamer.


BONNY PORTMORE
(as heard in Homeland)

        O bonny Portmore, I am sorry to see
        Such a woeful destruction of your ornament tree
        For it stood on your shore for many's the long day
        Till the long boats from Antrim came to float it away.

        All the birds in the forest they bitterly weep
        Saying, "Where will we shelter or where will we sleep?"

        For it stood on your shore for many's the long day
        Till the long boats from Antrim came to float it away.
        All the birds in the forest they bitterly weep
        Saying, "Where will we shelter or where will we sleep?"



BONNY PORTMORE
(as heard in Not To Be)

        O bonny Portmore, you shine where you stand
        And the more I think on you the more I think long
        If I had you now as I had once before
        I would cling to the memory of our love ever more

        O bonny Portmore, I am sorry to see
        Such a woeful destruction of your ornament tree
        For it stood on your shore for many's the long day
        Till the long boats from Antrim came to float it away.

        O bonny Portmore, you shine where you stand
        And the more I think on you the more I think long
        If I had you now as I had once before
        I would cling to the memory of our love ever more

        All the birds in the forest they bitterly weep
        Saying, "Where will we shelter or where will we sleep?"
        For the Oak and the Ash, they are all cutten down
        And the walls of bonny Portmore are all down to the ground.

        O bonny Portmore, you shine where you stand
        And the more I think on you the more I think long
        If I had you now as I had once before
        I would cling to the memory of our love ever more
