Lyrics: English Translation:
   
Mo chridhe trom 's duilich leam My heart is weary, so sad am I
Gur muladach a tha mi It is melancholy I am
Bho chuir mo leannan clthaobh rium Since my sweetheart turned from me
Fear r cha tig na ite A new man will not come in his place
Mo chridhe trom 's duilich leam My heart is weary, so sad am I
   
Nuair chunnaic mi an toiseach thu When I first saw you
Nad shuidh' air stoc a bhta Sitting at the gunwhale
'S e cig blian' deug a dh'aois bha mi I was fifteen years old, love
A ghaoil, nuair thug mi grdh dhut When I gave my love to you
Mo chridhe trom 's duilich leam My heart is weary, so sad am I
   
Nuair chaidh mi chun a'chladaich leat When I went to the beach with you
'S a dh'amhairc mi nad bhta And saw you in the boat
Gu robh mo chridh' a caoineadh My heart was weeping
Ged a rinn mi faoin an gire Although I tried to smile
Mo chridhe trom 's duilich leam My heart is weary, so sad am I
   
Ach on a rinn thu caochladh But since you died
Air faondradh rinn thu m'fhagail Your leaving me was pointless
On mheall thu le do ghaol mi Since you deceived me with love
Chan fhaod mi bhith mar a bha mi I cannot be as I was
Mo chridhe trom 's duilich leam My heart is weary, so sad am I
   
Mo chridhe trom's duilich leam My heart is weary, so sad am I
Gur muladach a tha mi It is melancholy I am
Bho chuir mo leannan clthaobh rium Since my sweetheart turned from me
Fear r cha tig na ite A new man will not come in his place
Mo chridhe trom 's duilich leam My heart is weary, so sad am I
