  • A Nighean Nan Geug

    Air a sheinn le Seonag NicChoinnich

    A nighean nan geug, o hao ri ohan
    O hao ri u
    A nighean nan geug, o hao ri u


    Tha muigh leis an spreidh, o hao ri ohan
    O hao ri u
    Tha muigh leis an spreidh


    Na gabh eagal no fiamh
    Tha mise 'n seo sian
    A nighean nan geug


    A nighean nan geug
    Mo thruaighe mo chlann
    Bean eile nan ceann
    Gham bualadh gu teann
    Gham biathadh gu gann
    S an athair sa ghleann
    A nighean nan geug

  • Girl of the Branches

    As sung by Joan MacKenzie

    Gentlest of maidens, o hao ri ohan
    O hao ri u
    O gentlest of maidens, o hao ri u


    Who is tending the cattle, o hao ri ohan
    O hao ri u
    Who is tending the cattle


    Do not be afraid -
    I am here to protect you
    O gentlest of maidens


    O gentlest of maidens
    Pity my poor children
    In the care of another woman
    She beats them sorely
    She feeds them poorly
    While their father is away in the glen
    O gentlest of maidens
