Lyrics: English Translation:
   
Sist: Chorus (after each verse):
Air a' ghille tha mo rn My desire is for the lad
Tha mo rn air a' ghille He is the one I love
Bho'n a thug thu rium do chl Since you turned away from me
B'e mo dhrachd thu thilleadh My dearest wish is that you would return
   
Falt do chinn tha dualach dlth Your hair is in tight tresses
T' anail chbhraidh, ro-mhilis Your breath fragrant and sweet
Da shil mheallach, chorrach, chiin Your eyes alluring, passionate and calm
'S tu mo rn de na gillean You are the choicest of all the young men
   
Tha thu ro mhath air an t-sliabh You are the most expert on the moor
Thoirt nan eun bhrr na h-iteag At shooting the birds on the wing
Gunna dubh a leagadh fiadh With a black gun that would down a stag
'S earbag riabhach an fhirich Or a young roe on the moorland
   
'S ann am Muile nam beann fuar It is in Mull of the cool bens
Tha mo luaidh de na gillean That my sweetheart lives
Dh' aithnichinn thu 'measg an t-sluaigh I would recognize you amid the throng
Leis na h-uaislean a' tighinn As you walked with the nobility
   
Air a' ghille tha mo rn... My desire is for the lad...
