Latha dhomh 's mi falbh 'sna fireachan One day I took off into the mountain moors

Thachair orm a' ghruagach chinnealta I came across a nice young lass
   
Thachair orm a' ghruagach chinnealta I came across a nice young lass
   
Theann mi null is fhuair mi bruidhinn dhi I went over and got her to talk with me
   
Theann mi null is fhuair mi bruidhinn dhi I went over and got her to talk with me
   
'S dh'fhoighneachd mi gu d bu chinneadh dhi? And I asked her what her surname was
   
Thuirt i riumsa "Tha bann-Sisalach" She said, "I'm a Chisolm"
   
'S thuirt mi rith' gum b'e mo chinneadh And I told her that that was my clan
   
Thuirt i rium "Cha bhi mo thurus riut She said to me, "I'll have nothing to do with you
   
Gura Leathanach mo roghainn-sa I prefer MacLeans
   
Gun dian Dmhnallach mo choinneachadh" And a MacDonald will be coming to see me"
