Runrig - Tir An Airm (Land of the Army)


Em, Em, G, D, Em

    Em              D      Em
An teid thu leam a ribhinn og
                  D       Em
Gu tir mo gràidh sitheil sona
   G               Em
'S chi thu saighdearan a' ruith
    G               D
Am measg nan lusan brèagh 'sa mhonadh

Em     D      Em
Ho ro horainn O
             D    Em
Failte gu tir an airm
Em     D      Em
Ho ro horainn O

[Play the rest of the verses with same chords as the first] 

A' Coimhead a mach air maduinn chiuin
Air ball mor cruinn os cionn na beinne
'S bhon is ciuin na tonnan gorm
Tha ceol ru aig ceol na mara

'S an teid thu leam gu tir mo ghraidh
Seall na h-eoin Dhorchas Dhona
Treabhadh speuran as ar cionn
Deanamh air Steornabhagh le cabhaig

Nis leugh t-eachdraich, fosgail suil
Anns gach linn mu dhoigh an Airnm
Stampadh air na croitean seagail
'S beathannan og aig gillean Uibhist

Cha deid mise gu an righ
Cha deid mise an corr a shabaid
O lunnain mheallt, a Bhreatuinn fhoilleil
Cha seas mi ach 'son sith nan eilean


Gaelic translation:

Come along with me, my young girl
To the peaceful, happy land
And you will see soldiers running around
Amongst the beautiful wild machair flowers

Looking out on a peaceful morning
On the great round ball above the mountain
And though the waves are calm
There's a new music in the music of the sea

And will you go with me to the land I love
To see the dark evil birds
Ploughing the skies above us
Making for Stornoway at high speed

Now read your history, open your eyes
To every generation and to the ways of the military
Stamping on the rye in the crofts
And the young lives of the Uist boys

But I cannot go "for the King"
I cannot fight anymore
The deceit of London, the treachery of Britain
I'll only support peace in the islands

Ho ro horain O
Welcome to the Land of the Army
Ho ro horain O
