Lyrics: English Translation:
   
Oidhche Shamhna dhomh 's mi m'nar Alone on Halloween night
Smaointich mi gun dianainn ran I thought I would compose a song
'S truagh a Rgh nach mi bha psd' It's a pity I wasn't married
Ri igear a' chil dualaich To the youth with the curled hair
   
Gura h-e mo ghaol an t-igear The young man of the brown hair
A' chil duinn 's a' leadain bhidhich And lovely tresses is my darling
'S mi gu siubhladh leat far m'elais I would fare with you to unknown places
Ged tha an cta ruadh ort Even though you wear the redcoat
   
Chuir thu falt mo chinn gu talamh You sent the hair of my head to the ground
Chuir thu mo ghruaidh dhearg an tainead You made my red cheeks thin
'S truagh nach robh mise 's an anart It's a pity that I wasn't in the death shroud
Mun deachaidh mo luaidh riut Before I fell in love with you
   
Tha mi nochd a' dol a laighidh Tonight, as I go to rest
'S cinnteach leam gum faic mi aisling It's certain I will see a vision
Thu bhi snte ann 'am leabaidh You will lay in my bed
Tacan air a' chluasaig For a while on the pillow
   
Sist: Chorus:
Tha mo rn air a' ghille I love the lad
'S mr mo dhil ri thu thilleadh Great is my hope for you to return
'S mi gu siubhladh leat am fireach I would travel the moorland with you
Fo shileadh nam fuar-bheann Under the drip of the cold mountains
   
Oidhche Shamhna dhomh 's mi m'nar Alone on Halloween night
Smaointich mi gun dianainn ran I thought I would compose a song
'S truagh a Rgh nach mi bha psd' It's a pity I wasn't married
Ri igear a' chil dualaich To the youth with the curled hair
   
(Sist) (Chorus)
   
Gura h-e mo ghaol an t-igear The young man of the brown hair
A' chil duinn 's a' leadain bhidhich And lovely tresses is my darling
'S mi gu siubhladh leat far m'elais I would fare with you to unknown places
Ged tha an cta ruadh ort Even though you wear the redcoat
   
(Sist) (Chorus)
   
Chuir thu falt mo chinn gu talamh You sent the hair of my head to the ground
Chuir thu mo ghruaidh dhearg an tainead You made my red cheeks thin
'S truagh nach robh mise 's an anart It's a pity that I wasn't in the death shroud
Mun deachaidh mo luaidh riut Before I fell in love with you
   
(Sist) (Chorus)
   
Ged tha blth na bric' air d'aodann Although your face is scarred by smallpox
Cha do lughdaich e mo ghaol ort It didn't lessen my love for you
'S mi gu siubhladh leat a' saoghal I would travel the world with you
Nan saoilinn-se do bhuannachd If I thought I could win you over
   
(Sist) (Chorus)
   
Phsainn thu dh'aindein mo chirdean I would wed you in spite of my kin
Gun toil m'athar, no mo mhthar Without consent from my father or my mother
Eachann saor a tha mi 'g ritinn I give his name, Hector the carpenter
Bhon 's e chnmh a' ghruag dhiom Since it's he who has caused the hair to wear from my head
   
(Sist) (Chorus)
   
Tha mi nochd a' dol a laighidh Tonight, as I go to rest
'S cinnteach leam gum faic mi aisling It's certain I will see a vision
Thu bhi snte ann 'am leabaidh You will lay in my bed
Tacan air a' chluasaig For a while on the pillow
   
(Sist...) (Chorus...)
