Sist: Chorus (after each verse):
A rbhinn g bheil cuimhn' agad Fair maiden, do you remember
'S a ghruagach dhonn an cluinn thu mi? And brown-haired lass, do you hear me?
A rbhinn g bheil cuimhn' agad Fair maiden, do you remember
An oidhche mu'n do shel mi? The night before I sailed?
   
Gur fada, fada thall th mi Far, far I am away
'S chan fhaigh mi null a shealltuinn ort And I cannot come to see you
'S ged dhirinn bhrr nan crann aice And although I climb to the top of the masts
Chan fheic mi beanntan Leodhais I cannot see the hills of Lewis
   
A ghruagach na biodh mghar ort My dearest, do not be anxious
ir 's cinnteach th mo lmh-sa dhuit For surely I will give you my hand
'S t a ghrigh as fherr leam I prefer you to anyone else
N mo mhthair dh'raich g mi Even my mother who brought me up
   
Th mi falbh Di-Ciadain uat I am leaving you on Wednesday
'S chan fhaic thu air son bliadhna mi And I won't see you for another year
'S feuch nach dan an cianalas Try not to let our parting
Do liathadh ged is g thu Make you gray although you are young
   
Nuair bhios mi gun chompanach When I am without a companion
'S a bhios an oidhche trom orm And I feel the night long
Bidh gealach toir 'nam chuimhne The moon brings to mind
Liuthad oidhche bha sin cmhla The many nights we were together
   
(Sist 2x) (Chorus 2x)
