Title - Dh'Èirich mi 's cha robh mi Sunndach
Contributors - Calum Johnston
Reporters - Dr John Lorne Campbell

Summary - In the first section of this waulking song, a woman praises the man she loves. He is a chief or landowner who rides a well-shod horse. She describes him as being fair to his tenants. She prays he will have a long life.

In the second section, the composer regrets not being in her own district. There, her food and drink would be of a much higher standard than the spring water and miserable pancake she gets at present.
