Marie McLaughlin

Vair me o ro van o,
Vair me o ro van ee,
Vair me o oru o ho,
Sad am I without thee.

When I'm lonely, dear white hert,
Black the night or wild the sea,
By loves light my foot finds
The old pathway to thee.

Vair me o ro van o,
Vair me o ro van ee,
Vair me o ru o ho,
Sad am I without thee.

Last night by the sheiling was Mhairi, my beloved,
Out on the hillside by the sheiling, my Mhairi, my beloved.
Mo Mhairi, mo leannan, mo Mhairi my beloved.
On the hillside by the sheiling, my Mhairi, my beloved.

Like the white lily floating in the peat hags' dark waters,
Pure and white as the lily in the peat hags' dark waters.
Mo Mhairi, mo leannan, mo Mhairi my beloved.
Like the lily white floating in the peat hags' dark waters.

Thou'rt the music of my hert,
Harp of joy, o cruit mo chridh,
Moon of guidance by night,
Strength and light thour't tae me.

Vair me o ro van o,
Vair me o ro van ee,
Vair me o ru o ho,
Sad am I without thee.
