A Charming love song to a highland maiden in which her lover vows
to return and reclaim ber to share his life of exile in the lowlands.

Seisd (Chorus)

Ho ro, mo nigh'n donn bhoidheach,
Hi ri, mo nigh'n donn bhoidhech
Mo chaileag laghach, bhoidheach,
Cha phos mi ach tu

A Pheigi dhonn nam bla h-shul
Gur trom a thug mi gradh dhuit
Tha d'iomhaigh ghaoil a's d'ailleachd
A ghna h tigh'n fo m'uidh

Chorus

'S ann tha mo ru's na beanntaibh,
Far bheil mo ribhinn ghreannar
Mar ros am fasach Shamhraidh
An gleann fad'o shuil.

Chorus

Ach 'n uair a thig an Samradh
Bheir mise sgriob do 'n ghleann ud
'S gun tog mi leam do 'n Ghaildachd
Gu h-annsail am flur

Chorus

Tramp Miner

I am a tramp miner
I've been for some time now
I live without light of the day
In the black underground, that's
where I'll be found
Biding my time away
Oh working my life away

From here out to Timmins
I've loved all your women
In the taverns I drank down my pay
But I'd do it again even
though it's a sin
For it's better that driving the raise
If you've done it you'd know what I say

So I'll roll, roll with the wind
Roll, roll with the wind
Roll, roll with the time and the wind
Then I'll find my way back home again

Homesickness, heartbreak and black lung
Among these men run rampant
As they're rockin' n' rollin'
High ballin' this country today

I've been a tramp miner for such a long time now
I've lived without light of the day
In a hole in the ground
They'll lower me down
That'll be my final pay
For working my life away

So I'll roll, roll with the wind
Roll, roll with the wind
Roll, roll with the time and the wind
Then I'll find my way back home again

Roll, roll with the wind

So I'll roll, roll with the wind
Roll, roll with the wind
Roll, roll with the time and the wind
Then I'll find my way back home again

Carry me back home again
