An excellent song by Runrig that's relatively easy to play even for beginners as there 
are only 4 chords used (C, G, D, Em)

(Translation:
Gaidhlig: 'Tha feur ur air bar an tallamh, bar an tallamh, horribh o'
English: 'There's a new grass growing on the top of the soil'

(Just singing in the verses. After the first two choruses, instruments stop playing and 
there is only singing, apart from the 3 drum beats used on 'Tha feur ur air bar an 
tallamh, bar an tallamh, horribh o' line.

Verse 1:
G                             C                 G
April comes to the new grass on the hills of gold
G                C               G                 C
Tha feur ur air bar an tallamh, bar an tallamh, horribh o
        G                   C
Where winter falls in the long cold north
      G                   C        G
Black waters wait in the Ice and snow
G                C               G               C
Tha feur ur air bar an tallamh, bar an tallamh, horribh o
      G                   C
Black waters wait in the Ice and sun
              C                               G
Through the glens where your great rivers run

Chorus:
            C        G      D     C
Back on the stamping ground
             Em    C    G    D
to where it all began
            C        G      D     C
Back on the stamping ground
    G
We come again

Same notes for verses 2 & 3: (G, C)
Same chords for chorus: (C, G, D, C, Em, 
C, G, D, C, G, D, C, G)

Verse 2:
So we tend and we nurtur all the seeds we've sown
Tha feur ur air bar an tallamh, bar an tallamh, horribh o
Through all the frosts and rains the west winds blow
till the fields turn ripe and a harvest stored
Tha feur ur air bar an tallamh, bar an tallamh, horribh o
Through all the frosts and rains the west winds blow
We will wait here till the winter's end

Chorus:
Back on the stamping ground
to where it all began
Back on the stamping ground
We come again

Verse 3:
So it's blood on blood, our bond, our word
Tha feur ur air bar an tallamh, bar an tallamh, horribh o
For the strength and weakness of our days
is to take you there on a journey shared
Tha feur ur air bar an tallamh, bar an tallamh, horribh o
So take this ring, make it sparkle and glow
it's much greater than we may ever know

Chorus:
Back on the stamping ground
to where it all began
Back on the stamping ground
We come again
