Lyrics: English Translation:
   
'S gann nach gabhainn an t-eagal I hardly fear
Ro aon mhac breabadair be One weaver's son
Mharbhainn feil dhuit is sithion I would kill for meat and venison for you
Latha nach figheadh an cl On a day when the cloth would not be woven
   
Mharbhainn feil dhuit is sithion I would kill for meat and venison for you
Latha nach figheadh an cl On a day when the cloth would not be woven
Bheirinn fidh far a'mhonaidh I would bring deer from the moor
'S bheirinn bric as na lin And trout from the lochs
   
Bheirinn fidh far a'mhonaidh I would bring deer from the moor
'S bheirinn bric as na lin And trout from the lochs
Leis an t-sneachd bhiodh air m'fheusaig With the snow which would be on my beard
'S gann gu lir dhomh mo bhrg I can hardly see my shoe
   
Leis an t-sneachd bhiodh air m'fheusaig With the snow which would be on my beard
'S gann gu lir dhomh mo bhrg I can hardly see my shoe
'S gann gu lir dhomh n 's fhaisg orm I can hardly see anything close to me
Na lorg a'bhat'tha nam dhrn Nor find the walkingstick in my hand
   
'S gann gu lir dhomh n 's fhaisg orm I can hardly see anything close to me
Na lorg a'bhat'tha nam dhrn Nor find the walkingstick in my hand
Tha sneachd air Druim Uachdair There is snow on Drumochter
Far 'n robh mi cuallach nam b Where I herded cattle
   
Tha sneachd air Druim Uachdair There is snow on Drumochter
Far 'n robh mi cuallach nam b Where I herded cattle
'S ann do nighean fear Donnchaidh I fell heavily in love
A thug mi'n tromaghaol 's mi g With the daughter of Duncan in my youth
