LYRICS

O chì, chì mi na mórbheanna 
O chì, chì mi na còrrbheanna 
O chì, chì mi na coireachan 
Chì mi na sgoran fo cheò 

Chì mi gun dàil an t-àite ‘san d’rugadh mi 
Cuirear orm fàilte ‘sa’ chànain a thuigeas mi 
Gheibh mi ann aoidh agus gràdh nuair ruigeam 
Nach reicinn air tunnachan òyrh

Oh, I’ll see the great mountains
Oh, I’ll see the peaked mountains
Oh, I’ll see the deep valleys
And see the rock clefts ‘neath the mist.

Soon will I see the home of my people
Speak to my own in the tongue of my people,
Joy and love, which I find
in the arms of my people.
I’ll not trade for silver or gold
