Hello Craig, I think you are right that these words in Gaelic and English would be of interest to other readers of the newsgroup rec.music.celtic; but my software will not import this text into newsgroups. I am hoping that if I send it to you, you could forward it to that newsgroup? I am sending this to Digitrad. Thanks, Karen

Theid Mi Dhachaidh

Gaelic lyrics to "Theid Mi Dhachaidh", or
"Cro Chinn T-Saile "
(Courtesy of An Comunn Gaidhealach,
many thanks to them for their kindness)

Sist
Theid mi dhachaidh ho ro dhachaidh,
Theid mi dhachaidh chr Chin t-Sile,
Theid mi dhachaidh ho ro dhachaidh,
Theid mi dhachaidh chr Chinn t-Sile.

Rann 1
Theid mi fhn, leam fhn, leam fhn ann,
Theid mi fhn, leam fhn a Gerrloch,
Theid mi fhn, leam fhn, leam fhn ann
'S gabhaidh mi 'n rathad mr Chinn t-Sile.

Rann 2
Bi mi nochd am buaile Phearsain,
Bi mi 'n a chuid mhart am mireach.
Bi mi nochd am buaile Phearsain,
Bi mi 'n a chuid mhart am mireach.

English lyrics, from Talitha MacKenzie's "Slas" CD

I will go home
I will go home to the cattlefold of Kintail.
I will go home
I will go home to the cattlefold of Kintail.

I will go myself, by myself, there
I will go myself, by myself to Gairloch.
I will go myself, by myself, there
I will take the high road to Kintail.

Tonight I will be in the parson's cattlefold,
Tomorrow I will be with the cattle
headed for the slaughter
Tonight I will be in the parson's cattlefold,
Tomorrow I will be with the cattle
headed for the slaughter.

(She adds another verse:)

I will go to Urray, to reap the sea-bent
I will go to Urray with you, my love
I will go to Urray, to reap the sea-bent
I will go to Urray with you, my love.

The Gaelic for this is:

Thid mi dh'Uraigh bhuain a' mhurain
Thid mi dh'Uraigh leat a ghridh bhig
Thid mi dh'Uraigh bhuain a' mhurain
Thid mi dh'Uraigh leat a ghridh bhig
