Lyrics: English Translation:
   
'S ann a bhruadar mi raoir I dreamed last night of
An eal' air a chuan 's i snmh The swan swimming on the ocean
'S a h-aghaidh gu tr Facing towards the land
Bha mo leannan, 's mi fhn mar sgaoil My beloved and I were parted
   
Gura mise tha fo ghruaim I am deeply depressed
Bidh mi sin ach, a luaidh, an drsd I shall continue to be so now
Gur e stroirm is droch uair It is storms and difficult circumstances
Tha gad shor chumail bhuamsa ghridh That constantly keep us apart, my love
   
Tha mo lmhan cho sgth My arms are more weary
'S nach uarrainn mi innse 'n drsd That I can express at the moment
'S mi ri tarrainn nan rp As I heave the ropes
'S ri cumail nan sel an ird To keep the sails up
   
Tha 'n lin tha rim chl The shirt on my back
Cho fliuch 's a ni 'm brn no sl Is as wet as fresh or salt water can make it
'S mi ri iarraidh dol sos And my desire is to go
Far bheil nighean mo ghaoil a' tmh To where my beloved is living
   
Gur e brodal do bheil It was the love-talk of your lips
A mheall mi 's mi g is faoin That beguiled me when I was young and foolish
Ach nam faighinn mo mhiann But if I had my wish
Bhiodh marcraichean triall do chuim Horsemen would be going to fetch you
   
Thug thu gealladh as r You gave a new promise
'S chaidh an comann air chil a bha And the bond that existed was set aside
Gura fhada bhon uair It is a long time now
O mheall iad thu bhuamsa ghridh Since they deceitfully enticed you away from me, my love
   
Cha toir mi ort binn I shall pass no judgement on you
Ach innis dhomh 'n fhrinn ridh Only tell me the plain truth
Cha bhi naidheachd ri inns' There will be no tales told
Aig fear eil orm fhn mad dhidhinn By any man about you from me
   
'S ann a bhruadar mi raoir I dreamed last night of
An eal' air a chuan 's i snmh The swan swimming on the ocean
'S a h-aghaidh gu tr Facing towards the land
Bha mo leannan, 's mi fhn mar sgaoil My beloved and I were parted
