The Cairn Oan The Meer


[The Cairn On The Moor]

Lyrics composed by John Henderson on the 20th of June, 2011,
based on the story told in the Gaelic song, "
Carn Air A'mhonadh",
and the music written by Duncan Johnstone for it.

Please big up the moniment aa freens an aa faithfu;
Please big up the moniment hich oan Beinn Bhain.
Please big up the moniment oan bluidy Islay;
Syne we wull win Arran, sae big up the cairn.

Chorus:
Heist up the Arran man, syne we'll lea Islay.
Heist up ma Angus fae faar he wis slain.
Ay! Heist up the Arran man, tak him aneth;
Inch-Arran I'm sichtin, sae big up the cairn.

Pleese cairry ma gudeman's corp freens ow'r tae Arran;
He focht aye wi honour oan the meers o' Beinn Bhain.
Please gang noo tae the hairbour an git redd the sailboat;
Seen she wull cairry ma dear Angus hame.

Chorus:
Ay! Heist up the Arran man, syne we'll lea Islay.
Ay! Heist up ma Angus fae faar he wis slain.
Ay! Heist up the Arran man, tak him aneth;
Inch-Arran I'm sichtin, sae big up the cairn.
