BHA MISE RAOIR AIR AN IRIGH (Scottish Gaelic)

Bha mise raoir air an irigh
H oireann o h oireann o
Cha b' ann ri aighear a bha mi
Hi o ileadh ho hoireann o

Cha b' ann ri aighear a bha mi
Ach a' smaointinn ortsa, ghridhein

'N dil nach cumadh am muir-ln thu
Nach cumadh lonadh no trghadh

Nach m chumadh an t bhn thu
Dh'aindeoin a cuid chruidh na phrisichbh

Dh'fhairich mi crith, cha bu chrith fhuachd i
Dh'fhairich mi fear, limh a b' fhuaire

Cradh a chuid airm 'n taobh shuas dhom
Sgaoileadh a bhreacain mum uachdar

Dh'aithnich mi nach b' e mo luaidh e
Bhuail mi sad air, shrad mi bhuam e

Bhuail mi sad air, shrad mi bhuam e
'S thug cl a chinn lag san luachair
LAST NIGHT I WAS UP AT THE SHIELING

Last night I was up at the shieling
h oireann o h oireann o
My time was not spent in jollity
h oireann o h oireann o

My time was not spent in jollity
But thinking of you, my darling

Sure that high tide would not keep you
Neither flowing or ebbing

Nor that fair woman would delay you
Despite her cattle and wealth

Last night I was at the rushy shieling
I shivered, and it wasn't the cold

I sensed a man with cold hands
Placing his armor a little up from me

Spreading his plaid over me
I knew he wasn't my love

My hard blow sent him flying
His head lay flopped in the rushes
