​'Ic Iain 'Ic Sheumais

This song is by Runrig and appears on the album Recovery (1981).

A Mhic Iain 'Ic Sheumais
Tha do sgeul air m'aire
Air fa ra ra lo, air fa ra ra lo
Latha blàr a' Cheithe
Bha feum air mo leanamh
A hi eile fe o hiri si bho horo hu
Fal eile bho hiri bho ho fal eile

Latha blàr a' Cheithe
Bha feum air mo leanamh
Air fa ra ra lo, air fa ra ra lo
Lathe blàr na Feitheadh
Bha do leine na ballan
A hi eile fe o hiri si bho horo hu
Fal eile bho hiri bho ho fal eile

Lathe blàr na Feitheadh
Bha do leine na ballan
Air fa ra ra lo, air fa ra ra lo
Bha fuil do chuim chubhraidh
A drudhadh ro'n anart
A hi eile fe o hiri si bho horo hu
Fal eile bho hiri bho ho fal eile

Bha fuil do chuim chubhraidh
A drudhadh ro'n anart
Air fa ra ra lo, air fa ra ra lo
Bha fuil do chuirp uasail
Air uachdair gach fearainn
A hi eile fe o hiri si bho horo hu
Fal eile bho hiri bho ho fal eile

Bha fuil do chuirp uasail
Air uachdair gach fearainn
Air fa ra ra lo, air fa ra ra lo
Cuma nach ghabh thu am bristeadh
Latha ligeadh na fala
A hi eile fe o hiri si bho horo hu
Fal eile bho hiri bho ho fal eile

Bh'on latha thug thu an cuan ort
Bha gruaim air na beannaidh
Air fa ra ra lo, air fa ra ra lo
Bha snigh air na speuran
'S bha na reultan galach
A hi eile fe o hiri si bho horo hu
Fal eile bho hiri bho ho fal eile

Nam biodh agam curaidh
Gun cuirinn air chuan I
Air fa ra ra lo, air fa ra ra lo
Fiach a faighinn naidheachd
No brath an duin uasail
A hi eile fe o hiri si bho horo hu
Fal eile bho hiri bho ho fal eile

A Mhic Iain 'Ic Sheumais
Tha do sgeul air m'aire
Air fa ra ra lo, air fa ra ra lo
Latha blàr a' Cheithe
Bha feum air mo leanamh
A hi eile fe o hiri si bho horo hu
Fal eile bho hiri bho ho fal eile

TriviaEdit

The wounds of Donald MacIain were apparently not serious but one of them was very painful. It is said that he was carried into a house with the arrow still embedded in his leg, and that a number of spinning women sang a waulking song around the table on which the warrior was laid during the extraction of the arrow head. Battle of Carnish, North Uist, 1601.
