Runrig - Siol Ghoraidh (The Geneology of Goraidh)

This song sounds better with percussion but you can make it work on an acoustic.
I'm trying to tab out more runrig songs so if you have any suggestions, let me know.

I've included a translation at the bottom for those interested.

Standard Tuning.

Translation

The geneology of Goraidh
The sons of Ruairi
The sons of Ranald
The children of Donald
The children of my own family


Eighteen teams of horses
On the field of Aird a Mhorrain
the young men were ploughing
On the day the Sleat people came

The geneology of Goraidh
The sons of Ruairi
The sons of Ranald
The children of Donald
The children of my own family

Generation to generation
From one name to another
My time is now
To walk this corner of Uist

Black was the colour of the blood
That flowed like a flood to the land
The arrow, the long sword
Through the generosity of the Udal people
