  An Island Sheiling Song (Traditionnal)
3.13
Lyrics

Last night by the sheiling

Was Mhairi my beloved.

Out on the hillside by the sheiling

My Mhairi my beloved.

Mo Mhairi, mo lhenan,

Mo Mhairi, my beloved,

On the hillside by the sheiling

My Mhairi my beloved.

 

Like the white lily floating

In the peat hag’s dark waters.

Pure and white as the lily

In the peat hag’s dark waters.

Mo Mhairi, mo lhenan,

Mo Mhairi, my beloved,

Like the lily white floating

In the peat hag’s dark waters.

 

Like the blue gentian blooming

Wet with dew in the sunshine

Are the eyes of my Mhairi,

Purple blue in the sunshine.

Mo Mhairi, mo lhenan,

Mo Mhairi, my beloved,

Lily white, pure, gentian-eyed

Is my Mhairi, my beloved.
