Verses:
1. Chì mi bhuam, fada bhuam,
Chì mi bhuam ri muir làin;
Chì mi Ceap Breatuinn mo luaidh
Fada bhuam thar an t-sàil.

2. Chì mi Creiginnis nan craobh,
Le cuid aonaichean àrd;
'S an Rugh' Fada tha ri taobh
Gheibhte maoin ann 'us bàrr.

3. Chì mi Siudaig nam fear cruaidh,
Chì mi Bruaich nam fear àrd,
Bha Clann Sheumais ann ri uair
Laoich a bhuanaicheadh blàr.

4. Chì mi Sestico nan tùr,
'S am bheil bùthan 'us sràid;
Chì mi Mabù air a' chùl
B' i sid dùthaich mo ghràidh.

5. Chì mi cladach Meinn a' Ghuail,
'S am bidh buar agus gràn;
'S Rugh' an t-Seallaidh fad mu thuath,
Creagach, fuar agus àrd.
