Saturday Music: Mist Covered Mountains

Here is a beautiful Scottish song written by Iain Camshroin.  Below are the lyrics in their English translation, and here are the Gaelic lyrics.  I would love to learn the Gaelic.  I am a little shy of my pronunciation, but as a life goal I would like to lean traditional songs in Gaelic.


Oh ro soon shall I see them;

Oh he ro see them oh see them.

Oh ro soon shall I see them

the mist covered mountains of home.

There shall I visit the place of my birth

And they’ll give me a welcome the warmest on earth

All so loving and kind full of music and mirth,

In the sweet sounding language of home.

There shall I gaze on the mountains again,

On the fields and the woods and the burns and the glens,

Away ‘mong the corries beyond human ken

In the haunts of the deer I will roam

Hail to the mountains with summits of blue,

To the glens with their meadows of sunshine and dew.

To the women and men ever constant and true,

Ever ready to welcome one home.
