Summary

This song tells of 'The old woman of Beinn a' Bhric'. She was the spirit who protected the deer. She would travel from glen to glen to find out which one was the best. The second verse sung here says, "I would prefer the green watercress, on the sides of the high mountains."

Cailleach Beinn a' Bhric horò
Bhric horò, bhric horò
Cailleach Beinn a' Bhric horò
Cailleach mhòr nam fuar-bheann àrd

Shiùbhladh i bho ghleann gu gleann
Bho ghleann gu gleann, bho ghleann gu gleann
Shiùbhladh i bho ghleann gu gleann
Dh'fheuchainn cò an gleann a b' fheàrr

Cailleach Beinn a' Bhric horò
Bhric horò, bhric horò
Cailleach Beinn a' Bhric horò
Cailleach mhòr nam fuar-bheann àrd

B' annsa leam a' bhiolair-uain'
A' bhiolair-uain', a' bhiolair-uain'
B' annsa leam a' bhiolair-uain'
Bhiodh air bruach nam fuaran àrd

Cailleach Beinn a' Bhric horò
Bhric horò, bhric horò
Cailleach Beinn a' Bhric horò
Cailleach mhòr nam fuar-bheann àrd
