Lyrics: English Translation:
   
Cha bu shealbhach dhomh d'fhaotainn It was not fortunate for me to get you
'S e mo ghaol a' Maol Donn My dear, my Maol Dunn
Cha bu shealbhach dhomh d'fhaotainn It was not fortunate for me to get you
'S e mo ghaol a' Maol Donn My dear, my Maol Dunn
Cha bu shealbhach dhomh d'fhaotainn It was not fortunate for me to get you
'S e mo ghaol a' Maol Donn My dear, my Maol Dunn
Ga d' iarraidh 's ga d'fhaotainn Searching for you and finding you
'S ga d' shlaodadh a poll And pulling you out of a bog
   
Iain shomaltaich, e hor Laid-back John, e horo
Thog iad an crodh far na lin They have lifted the cattle from the meadows
Iain shomaltaich, e hor Laid-back John, e horo
Thog iad an crodh far na lin They have lifted the cattle from the meadows
   
Thig an tir oirnn fhn The raid will come on us
'S air mo limh ni thu lorg And by my hand you will find them
Thig an tir oirnn fhn The raid will come on us
'S air mo limh ni thu lorg And by my hand you will find them
Thig an tir oirnn fhn The raid will come on us
'S air mo limh ni thu lorg And by my hand you will find them
Iain shomaltaich, e hor Laid-back John, e horo
Thog iad an crodh far na lin They have lifted the cattle from the meadows
   
Iain bi muigh, h John be out, o ho
Tha' n tir mun taigh, h The raid is about the house, o ho
Thoir leat claidheamh, h Take with you a big sword, o ho
Mr is saighead, h And a bow and arrow, o ho
Iain bi muigh, h John be out, o ho
Tha' n tir mun taigh, h The raid is about the house, o ho
Thoir leat claidheamh, h Take with you a big sword, o ho
Mr is saighead, h And a bow and arrow, o ho
   
Thig an tir oirnn fhn The raid will come on us
'S air mo limh ni thu lorg And by my hand you will find them
Thig an tir oirnn fhn The raid will come on us
'S air mo limh ni thu lorg And by my hand you will find them
Thig an tir oirnn fhn The raid will come on us
'S air mo limh ni thu lorg And by my hand you will find them
Iain shomaltaich, e hor Laid-back John, e horo
Thog iad an crodh far na lin They have lifted the cattle from the meadows
