Cò thug mo bhò a dh'Èirinn
O hoilibh ò eile
Cò thug mo bhò a dh'Èirinn

Cò thug mo bhò-bhainne
Bhuam a dh'aindeoin-sa dh'Èirinn

Cò thug mo bhò a dh'Èirinn
O hoilibh ò eile

A' bhò thug mi à Barraigh
O mo charaid am Brèibhig

Cò thug mo bhò a dh'Èirinn
O hoilibh ò eile

Cò thug mo bhò a dh'Èirinn
O hoilibh ò eile
Cò thug mo bhò a dh'Èirinn
