lyrics

Bràighe Loch Iall

O thèid is gun tèid
O thèid mi thairis
Gu innis nam bò
Far an ceòlmhòr ainnir

Sèist:
Ill ò bha hò
S’na hao ri ri rì o hi
Hoireann o gù o hill ò bha hò

Gu innis nam bò
Far an ceòlmhòr ainnir
Gu Bràighe Loch Iall
Far am bi fiadh s’an langan

Gu Bràighe Loch Iall
Far am bi fiadh s’an langan
Is earbag nan stùc
Tha lùghmhor eangar

Is earbag nan stùc
Tha lùghmhor eangar
A bhean an fhuilt rèidh
Guidheam fhèin dhut mo bheannachd

A bhean an fhuilt rèidh
Guidheam fhèin dhut mo bheannachd
Mo beannachd ad dhèidh
Ged is fheudar bhith dealaicht’

O thèid is gun tèid
O thèid mi dhachaidh
Gu Bràighe Loch Iall
Far am bith fiadh s’an langan
The Braes of Locheil

O I’ll go, I’ll go
O I will go over
To the cow pasture
Where the tuneful maiden is

Chorus:
Ill ò bha hò
S’na hao ri ri rì o hi
Hoireann o gù o hill ò bha hò

To the cow pasture
Where the musical maiden is
To the Braes of Locheil
Where the red deer bellow

To the Braes of Locheil
Where the red deer bellow
And the roe deer of the hillocks
Who are swift and agile

And the roe deer of the hillocks
Who are swift and agile
Woman of the smooth hair
I give you my blessing

Woman of the smooth hair
I give you my blessing
My blessing upon you
Although we had to part

O I’ll go, I’ll go
O I will go home
To the Braes of Locheil
Where the red deer bellow
