Mo chùbhrachan 's a chùl ri làr
Mo chùbhrachan 's a chùl ri làr
Mo chùbhrachan 's a chùl ri làr
Cha d' fhuair mi lorg mo chùbhrachain.

O fhuair mi lorg an dòbhrain duinn
An dòbhrain duinn, an dòbhrain duinn
O fhuair mi lorg an dòbhrain duinn
Cha d' fhuair mi lorg mo chùbhrachain.

O shiubhail mi bheinn o cheann gu ceann
O shiubhail mi bheinn o ghleann [???]
O shiubhail mi bheinn o cheann gu ceann
Cha d' fhuair mi lorg mo chùbhrachain.

O fhuair mi lorg an fhèidh sa bheinn
An fhèidh sa bheinn, an fhèidh sa bheinn
O fhuair mi lorg an fhèidh sa bheinn
Cha d' fhuair mi lorg mo chùbhrachain.

O fhuair mi lorg na h-eal' air an t-snàmh
Na h-eal' air an t-snàmh, na h-eal' air an t-snàmh
O fhuair mi lorg na h-eal' air an t-snàmh
Cha d' fhuair mi lorg mo chùbhrachain.
