Lyrics: English Translation:
   
'N tid thu leam, a Mhiri Will you come with me, Mary?
'S am falbh thu leam thar sile And will you go with me across the sea?
An tid thu leam air bhrr nan tonn Will you come with me on the top of the waves
Gur tr nam gleann 's nan rd-bheann? To the land of the glens and the high mountains?
   
Led chumadh dealbhach, allidh With your beautiful shapely figure
Mar dhealradh reult air fire Like the gleam of a star on the horizon
'S e d'ndur ciin, do bhidh 's do mhirn 'Tis your gentle nature, your kindness and your politeness
A leag mo rn 's mo ghrdh ort Which caused me to appreciate and love you
   
Tha agam spridh len iltean I have cattle with their followers
'S mo mheanbh-chrodh air na h-irdean And my small cattle on the high ground
'S bidh laoigh is uain air raon is cluain And calves and lambs will be in field and pasture
'S gur taitneach fuaim am birich And pleasant the noise of their lowing and bleating together
   
Stad a nis, a Ghidheil Stop now, Highlander
Mo chrdh, mo rn 's mo lmh dhut I give you my heart, my love and my hand
Gun tid mi null go tr nam beann Indeed I shall go over to the land of the bens
On choisinn fonn do dhin mi As the melody of your song won me
   
'N tid thu leam, a Mhiri Will you come with me, Mary?
'S am falbh thu leam thar sile And will you go with me across the sea?
An tid thu leam air bhrr nan tonn Will you come with me on the top of the waves
Gur tr nam gleann 's nan rd-bheann? To the land of the glens and the high mountains?
