Fionnghuala

Fionnghuala

Thuirt an gobha fuirighidh mi
'S thuirt an gobha falbhaidh mi
'S thuirt an gobha leis an othail
A bh' air an do\rus an t-sa\bhail
Gu rachadh e a shuirghe

Se/ist
'S a gheala nam botham nam botham
Pe ho ro bha hin an doicheam
'S hala ham to han an doicheam
Am bothan a bh' aig Fionnghuala
Bheirinn fead air fulmairean
Bheirinn fead air falmairean
Liuthannan beaga na mara
Bheireamaid greis air an tarrainn
Na maireadh na duirgh dhuinn
He also knew of a third verse:

Cha d'thuirt an dadan a' seo\
Cha d'thuirt an dadan a' seo\
Cha d'thuirt an dadan a' seo\
Bheireamaid greis air an tarrainn
Na maireadh na duirgh dhuinn
