   [Intro]
G  Gmaj7  C    Am  C  D
G  Gsus4  G

   [Verse 1]
G             C      Am
Tha na duilleagan a' dannsa
                C
Bho na craobhan anns a' ghaoith
G               C           Am
Foghar donn ar bliadhn' air tionndadh
                   C         D  G
Nis tha luchd an t-samhraidh ma sgaoil

   [Verse 2]
G                C     Am
Sona dh'fhаg thu mi le m'eilean
                  C
'S leam na lochan is na bаigh
   G                   C        Am
Mo cridh' aig tаmh air beanntan geamhraidh
                   C         D   G     Gsus4
Nis tha luchd an t-samhraidh ma sgaoil

   [Chorus]
Em         Bm
Foghar nan eilean
Em         Bm
Foghar mu thuath
            Am             C
Gheibh sinn beatha mar a chleachd sinn
    Am           C
Mas tаinig an t-sluagh
        Em             Bm
Bidh am fraoch air nam beanntan
     Em                Bm
'S a choille ruadh fon ghrian
          Am               C
'S iad a' sealltain dathan dhomsa
       Am         C      D
Gus an till iad a rithe

   [Verse 3]
G                C             Am
Tha an latha seachad, buintean dщinte
                   C
Gheibh an caisteal fois na h-oidhch'
G              C          Am
Gheibh an t-airgead cadal socair
                   C         D  G
Nis tha luchd an t-samhraidh ma sgaoil

   [Verse 4]
G                   C           Am
Mar a dh'atharraich iad ar beтshlaint
                   C
Mhill iad dualchas cainnt 's ru dтigh
G                 C            Am
Ach fhoghair, crathaidh mi do lаmh
                    C        D  G     Gsus4
Nis tha luchd an t-samhraidh ma sgaoil


   [Chorus]
Em         Bm
Foghar nan eilean
Em         Bm
Foghar mu thuath
            Am             C
Gheibh sinn beatha mar a chleachd sinn
    Am           C
Mas tаinig an t-sluagh
        Em             Bm
Bidh am fraoch air nam beanntan
     Em                Bm
'S a choille ruadh fon ghrian
          Am               C
'S iad a' sealltain dathan dhomsa
       Am         C
Gus an till iad a rithe

   [Outro]
D    G

English Translation

The leaves are dancing
From the trees in the wind
The browns of autumn are turning our year around
Now that the summer visitors have gone

Content is the way you left me to my island
The lochs and the bays are all mine
My heart rests easy on the winter hills
Now that the summer visitors have gone

Island autumn
Northern autumn
We can live a little like we used to
Before the crowds came
The heather on the hills
And the sunlit forests
Will reveal their colors for us
Until they return again 

The day is over, the shops have closed
The castle will get a night's peace
Money will get some respite
Now that the summer visitors have gone

They changed our means of livelihood
They altered our language and way of life
But autumn, I can only welcome you
Now that the summer visitors are gone

Island autumn
Northern autumn
We can live a little like we used to
Before the crowds came
The heather on the hills
And the sunlit forests
Will reveal their colors for us
Until they return again
