Ailein Duinn
Capercaillie Lyrics


Ailein Duinn (Dark Alan)

Gura mise tha fo e/islean,
Moch 's a' mhadainn is mi 'g e/irigh,
O\ hi\ shiu\bhlainn leat,
Hi\ ri bho\ ho\ are you bhi\,
Hi\ ri bho\ ho\ rionn o ho,
Ailein duinn, o\ hi\ shiu\bhlainn leat.

Ma 's e cluasag dhut a' ghainneamh,
Ma 's e leabaidh dhut an fheamainn,
O\ hi\ shiu\bhlainn leat,
Hi\ ri bho\ ho\ are you bhi\,
Hi\ ri bho\ ho\ rionn o ho,
Ailein duinn, o\ hi\ shiu\bhlainn leat.

Ma 's e 'n t-iasg do choinnlean geala,
Ma 's e na ro\in do luchd-faire,
O\ hi\ shiu\bhlainn leat,
Hi\ ri bho\ ho\ are you bhi\,
Hi\ ri bho\ ho\ rionn o ho,
Ailein duinn, o\ hi\ shiu\bhlainn leat.

Dh'o\lainn deoch ge boil le ca\ch e,
De dh'fhuil do choim 's tu 'n de/idh do bhathadh,
O\ hi\ shiu\bhlainn leat,
Hi\ ri bho\ ho\ are you bhi\,
Hi\ ri bho\ ho\ rionn o ho,
Ailein duinn, o\ hi\ shiu\bhlainn leat.

Gura mise tha fo éislean
Moch sa mhaduinn is mi g'éirigh
Ò hì shiùbhlainn leat
Hì ri bhò hò ru bhì
Hì ri bhò hò rinn o ho
Ailein Duinn, ò hì shiùbhlainn leat

Ma 's'en cluasag dhuit a ghaineamh
Ma 'se leabaidh dhut an gheamainn

Ò hì shiùbhlainn leat
Hì ri bhò hò ru bhì
Hì ri bhò hò rinn o ho
Ailein Duinn, ò hì shiùbhlainn leat

Ma 's en t-iasg do choinlean geala
Ma 's na righ do luchd-faire

Ò hì shiùbhlainn leat
Hì ri bhò hò ru bhì
Hì ri bhò hò rinn o ho
Ailein Duinn, ò hì shiùbhlainn leat



James Stuart

I really enjoy this beautiful but sad song. Here is the first part of the text and translation from the Internet.

Gura mise tha fo éislean How sorrowful I am
Moch sa mhaduinn is mi g'éirigh Early in the morning rising

Sèist: Chorus (after each verse):
Ò hì shiùbhlainn leat Ò hì, I would go with you
Hì ri bhò hò ru bhì Hì ri bhò hò ru bhì
Hì ri bhò hò rinn o ho Hì ri bhò hò rinn o ho
Ailein Duinn, ò hì shiùbhlainn leat Brown-haired Alan, ò hì, I would go with you

Ma 's'en cluasag dhuit a ghaineamh If your pillow is the sand
Ma 'se leabaidh dhut an gheamainn If your bed is the seaweed

I have been loving this beautiful song for years since I heard it for the first time. Charming music and Gaelic language. Greetings to Scotland from Altai!

Godryk FusRoDah

Haha I always thought it is one of asian languages!

William Morrison

Love that you appreciate the beautiful Galllic tongue. I have deep roots in the Scottish Highlands.

I saw Capercaillie live at the Cheltenham Town Hall a few years ago. It was AMAZING. The music, the vocals, all of it just blew us all away.

Jon Barnett

They are an inspiration to all celtic musicians. No other group can capture that hauntingly romatic image of Scotish music and culture. That is how it is, and how it should stay for ever.

NiCk

capercaillie do the best version of this

ENGLISH TRANSLATION How sorrowful I am Early in the morning rising Chorus (after each verse): Ò hì, I would go with thee Hì ri bhò hò ru bhì Hì ri bhò hò rinn o ho Brown-haired Alan, ò hì, I would go with thee If it is thy pillow the sand If it is thy bed the seaweed If it is the fish thy candles bright If it is the seals thy watchmen I would drink, though all would abhor it Of thy heart's blood after thy drowning RESPECT FROM ALBANIA ....THIS SONG MAKES ME CRY EVERY TIME I HEAR IT ......

I don't know if anyone has already mentioned it, but this was the theme tune to Rob Roy, in 1995. You can still get the soundtrack. Fantastic track.
