Chuir iad mise dh'eilean leam fhìn

I learnt this song from Christine Primrose in the Gaelic Song class at Sabhal Mòr Ostaig on the Isle of Skye in 2008.

Chuir iad mise dh'eilean leam fhìn

Sèist
Chuir iad mise dh'eilean leam fhìn
Chuir iad mise dh'eilean leam fhìn
Chuir iad mise dh'eilean leam fhìn
Dh' eilean mara fada bho thìr

'S toigh le Uilleam Ann' againn fhìn
'S toigh le Uilleam Ann' againn fhìn
'S toigh le Uilleam Ann' againn fhìn
'S toigh le Ruairidh gruagach a' chruidh

Sèist

'S toigh le Ailean bean na fhuilt dhuinn
'S toigh le Ailean bean na fhuilt dhuinn
'S toigh le Ailean bean na fhuilt dhuinn
'S toigh le Ruairidh buaile chrodh laoidh

Sèist

Hear a recording of this song made at Sabhal Mòr Ostaig in 2008

They sent me to an island by myself

Chorus
They sent me to an island by myself
An island of the sea, far from land

William likes our Anne
Ruairidh likes the cattle maid

Chorus

Allan likes the brown-haired woman
Ruairidh likes the cattle fold

Chorus
