A Chatrìon' Òg 's tu rinn mo leòn
'S tu dh'fhàg fo bhròn 's fo mhulad mi.
Mi 'n-diugh 's an-dè air cnoc leam fhèin
A' sileadh dheur 's mi turraman.

Mi 'n-diugh 's an-dè air cnoc leam fhèin
A' sileadh dheur 's mi turraman.
O 's i mo mhàthair rinn an call
Nuair chuir i shealg na tunnaig mi.

O 's i mo mhàthair rinn an call
Nuair chuir i shealg na tunnaig mi.
Nuair ràinig mi an linne chaol
'S ann bha mo ghaol a' sruladh innt'.

Nuair ràinig mi an linne chaol
'S ann bha mo ghaol a' sruladh innt'.
'S e 'n gunna caol a rinn mo leòn
Cha tèid e òirleach tuilleadh leam.

'S e 'n gunna caol a rinn mo leòn
Cha tèid e òirleach tuilleadh leam.
'S a thè rinn dhòmhs' an lèine chaol
Cha dèan thu ghaoil gin tuilleadh dhomh.

'S a thè rinn dhòmhs' an lèine chaol
Cha dèan thu ghaoil gin tuilleadh dhomh.
Ged thèid mi suas don bhail' ud shuas
Cha bhi mo chuairt ach diombuan ann.

Ged thèid mi suas don bhail' ud shuas
Cha bhi mo chuairt ach diombuan ann.
'S ged thèid mi sìos don taigh ud shìos
Cha chuir Catrìona furan orm.
