Tha mi sgith 's mi leam fhin I am tired and I am alone
Buain a rainich, buain a rainich Cutting the bracken, cutting the bracken
Tha mi sgith 's mi leam fhin I am tired and I am alone
Buain a rainich daonnan Cutting the bracken forever
Tha mi sgith 's mi leam fhin I am tired and I am alone
Buain a rainich, buain a rainich Cutting the bracken, cutting the bracken
Tha mi sgith 's mi leam fhin I am tired and I am alone
Buain a rainich daonnan Cutting the bracken forever

Cl an tomain bhidhich Behind the pretty knoll
Cl an tomain, braigh an tomain Behind the knoll, up on the knoll
