From the recording From Uig to Duluth
Dheighinn dha 'n a' ghealaich leat (a waulking, or milling song)
Sèist: Fill-iù oro hù o
Gur tu mo chruinneag bhòidheach
Fill-iù oro hù o.
Dheighinn dha 'n a' ghealaich leat
Nan gealladh tu mo phòsadh.
Dheighinn leat an ear 's an iar
Le each, gun srian, 's gun ròp' air
Dheighinn leat a dh' Uibhist
Far am buidhicheadh an t-eòrna.
Nighean bheag a' mhinisteir,
'S tha mise dol 'ga pòsadh
Dheighinn leat a dh' Éirinn
Gu féill nam ban òga.
Dheighinn dha na rionnagan
Nam biodh do chuideachd deònach.
Dheighinn leat a Chanada
A sheinn aig Loch Ontario
Dheighinn leat a Chórdoba
A dh' ithe biadh al fresco
Dheighinn leat a Riocaud
A chluich Ceòl na Cruinne
(You are) my pretty young lass
I would go to the moon with you
if you promise to marry me.
I would go east and west with you
with horse, with no bridle, no rein.
I would go to Uist with you
where barley ripens.
The Ministers small daughter
I am going to marry.
I would go to Ireland
to the fair of the young women.
I would go to the stars with you
if your family and friends be willing.
I would go to Canada
to sing at Lake Ontario.
I would go to Cordoba
to eat alfresco.
I would go to Riocaud
To play the music of the world.
