Lyrics: English Translation:
   
Chi mi bhuam, fada bhuam I see from me, far from me
Chi mi bhuam ri muir-ln I see from me to high-tide
Chi mi Muile nam beann fuar I see Mull of the cold mountains
Fada bhuam thar an t-sil Far from me across the seas
Fada bhuam thar an t-sil Far from me across the seas
   
Chi mi mullach nam beann mr I see the tops of the big mountains
Anns an g-mhadainn aigh In the brave dawn
An t-aon as airde dhiubh nan crr The height of each one of them is excessive
'S badan ce air a brr And a cloud of mist on top
Fada bhuam thar an t-sil Far from me across the seas
   
Ch mi ghucag air an fhraoch I see a bud upon the heather
Ch mi'n caorann fo bhlth I see the rowan tree in bloom
Ch mi uisge glan nam beann I see clear water of the mountains
Tigh'nn 'na dheann leis gach mm Coming in haste with each mound
Fada bhuam thar an t-sil Far from me across the seas
   
Tir a' bharraich, tr nan stuadh Land of the treetops, land of the waves
'S tric a luaidh ort na bird 'Tis often its wool on you, the bard
'S nuair a thug mi riut mo chl And when I turned my back on you
Rinn mi dsgadh gu dn I awoke boldly
'S bidh mi luaidh ort gu brth And I will love you forever
   
Chi mi bhuam, fada bhuam I see from me, far from me
Chi mi bhuam ri muir-ln I see from me to high-tide
Chi mi Muile nam beann fuar I see Mull of the cold mountains
Fada bhuam thar an t-sil Far from me across the seas
Fada bhuam thar an t-sil Far from me across the seas
