Transcription

Bhon dh'fhàg thu mi 's mulad orm
'S duilich leam mar dh'èirich
Nuair bha dùil gun leanamaid
'S e dealachadh a b' fheudar
Bhon dh'fhàg thu mi 's mulad orm.

A-raoir an taigh Mhic Alasdair
A-nochd 's mi air mo thrèigsinn
Na deòir a' ruith bhom shùilean
'S a' drùdhadh air mo lèirsinn
Bhon dh'fhàg thu mi 's mulad orm.

Ach nach bitheadh ortsa gruaimean
Bhon chuala tu sgeula
Cha tug mi dhan tè Ghallta
Ach gealltanas breugan
Bhon dh'fhàg thu mi 's mulad orm.

Nan coinnichinn-sa sa bhùthaidh thu
Is cùisean a bhith rèidh leinn
Cheannaichinn gùn dhen t-sìoda dhut
Is grìogagan air lèir dha
Bhon dh'fhàg thu mi 's mulad orm.

Nan tachradh tu 'n Creag Ghoraidh mi
'S mo sporan a bhith rèidh rium
Cheannaichinn dhan a' bhanntrach
Dràm airson do rèiteach
Bhon dh'fhàg thu mi 's mulad orm.

Bhon a rinn mi 'n t-òran
Oir 's brònach dhomh fhèin e
Cha tig mi na do chòir
Gus an deònaich thu fhèin e
Bhon dh'fhàg thu mi 's mulad orm.

Nam faighinn-sa mar a dh'iarrainn-sa
An fhiabhras às mo dhèidh
Gun stiùirinns' a Loch Baghasdail
Far a bheil mo roghainn cèile
Bhon dh'fhàg thu mi 's mulad orm
'S duilich leam mar dh'èirich.
Nuair bha dùil gun leanamaid
'S e dealachadh a b' fheudar
Bhon dh'fhàg thu mi 's mulad orm.
