A Gaelic Love Song
by Donald Ross

Chorus:
Oh dearest my own one, oh won't you be mine,
So full of devotion, so modest and kind?
My heart's full of longing and yearning for you;
Come close to me, darling --- you know I'll be true.

How charming you were, dear, when first in the glen
I made your acquaintance, and ever since then
Without you I'm lonely; none other will do;
Those brown eyes enthralled me --- it had to be you.

Chorus:
Oh dearest my own one, oh won't you be mine,
So full of devotion, so modest and kind?
My heart's full of longing and yearning for you;
Come close to me, darling --- you know I'll be true.

I'll always remember that evening in May;
We rambled the woodlands and meadows so gay;
The chorus of song birds, how sweet their refrain,
'Midst fragrance of wild flow'rs refreshed by the rain.

Chorus:
Oh dearest my own one, oh won't you be mine,
So full of devotion, so modest and kind?
My heart's full of longing and yearning for you;
Come close to me, darling --- you know I'll be true.

Do you now remember that moment of bliss,
So fondly embracing, the thrill of that kiss?
Since then you are mine, dear, the choice of my heart;
My promise I'll give you, that we'll never part.

My promise I'll give you, that we'll never part.

Chorus:
Cailin mo rin-sa is leannan mo ghridh,
Ainnir mo chridh-sa 's i cuspair mo dhin.
Tha m'inntinn ln slais bhi tilleadh gun dil,
Gu cailin mo rin-sa is leannan mo gridh.

1. B'g chuir mi elas air leannan mo ghridh,
'S a rinn mise suas ri'sa ghleannan gu h-rd;
A gnuis tha cho aoidheil, ln gean agus bigh,
Is mise bhios cianail, mur faigh mi a lmh.

2. Gur tric sinn le chile gabhail cuairt feadh an it',
'S a falbh troimh na cluaintean gach bruachag is mgh;
Na h-eoin bheag le smudan a' seinn dhuinn an dn,
'S toirt filte do'n mhaighdinn d'an d'thug mi mo ghrdh.

3. Bha mise ln aoibhneis nuair fhuair mi cheud phg,
Bho'n chaileig ghrinn uasail tha aighearach g.
'S e mo mhiann is mo dhrachd, cho fad 's bhios mi be,
A bhi psd' ris a' ghruagaich tha suairc agus cir.
