Chaidh mo Dhonnachadh dhan bheinn (My Duncan went to the hill)

I learnt this song from Christine Primrose in the Gaelic Song class at Sabhal Mòr Ostaig on the Isle of Skye in 2008.

Chaidh mo Dhonnachadh dhan bheinn

Chaidh mo Dhonnachadh dhan bheinn
Chaidh mo Dhonnachadh dhan bheinn
Chaidh mo Dhonnachadh dhan bheinn
'S cha d' thill e dhachaidh

'N e do Dhonnchadh-sa bh'ann?
'N e do Dhonnchadh-sa bh'ann?
'N e do Dhonnchadh-sa bh'ann?
Mo chall mar thachair

'S e mo Dhonnchadh-sa bh'ann
'S e mo Dhonnchadh-sa bh'ann
'S e mo Dhonnchadh-sa bh'ann
'S cha till e dhachaidh

Fuil a chridhe 's a chléibh
Fuil a chridhe 's a chléibh
Fuil a chridhe 's a chléibh
Ann am brèid a' bhreacain

Chaidh mo Dhonnchadh dhan bheinn
Chaidh mo Dhonnchadh dhan bheinn
Chaidh mo Dhonnchadh dhan bheinn
'S cha till e dhachaidh

My Duncan went to the hill

My Duncan went to the hill
And did not return home

Was that your Duncan?
My loss that happened

It was my Duncan
And he will not return home

The blood of his heart and of his breast
In the cloth of his plaid

My Duncan went to the hill
And will not return home
