'S Fhada Leam An Oidche Ghemhraidh

This song is by Dougie MacLean and appears on the album Riof (1997).

'S fhada leam an oidche gheamraidh
'S fhada 's fhada 's fhada leam i
'S nach fhaic mi ach preiridh lom ann
'S cha chluinn tonn ri tigh'nn gu ann

Fali fali fali o ro
Fali fali fali o ro
Fali fali fali o ro
'S cian nan cian bho dh'fhag mi leodhas

'N am do'n fheasga a bhi ciaradh
'S tric a bhios mo spoirad cianail
Smaoineachadh g' eil cian nan cian uam
Far 'm bu mhiann leam dhol a cheilidh

These winter nights are long for me
Long so long so long for me
From this barren prairie's endless floor
I cannot hear the crashing shore

English translation:
These winter nights are long for me
Long so long so long for me
From this barren prairie's endless roar
I cannot hear the crashing shore

Fali fali fali o ro
Fali fali fali o ro
Fali fali fali o ro
It is a time of long times since I left Lewis

In the evening time when it's getting dark
Often the spirit will be full of longing
Thinking that there is a long long distance
From where I would like to be in Ceilidhing
