Ged a sheòl mi air m' aineol
Cha laigh smalan air mi' inntinn
Ged a sheòl mi air m' aineol

'S ann à Boston a sheòl sinn
Dol air bhoidse chun na h-Ìnnsinn

Ged a sheòl mi air m' aineol
Cha laigh smalan air mi' inntinn
Ged a sheòl mi air m' aineol

Rinn sinn còrdadh ri captain
Air a' bhàrc a bha rìomhach

Ged a sheòl mi air m' aineol
Cha laigh smalan air mi' inntinn
Ged a sheòl mi air m' aineol

Trì latha roimh na Nollaig
Thàinig oirnn an droch shìde

Ged a sheòl mi air m' aineol
Cha laigh smalan air mi' inntinn
Ged a sheòl mi air m' aineol

Shèid i cruaidh oirnn le frasan
'S clachan mheallain a bha millteach

Ged a sheòl mi air m' aineol
Cha laigh smalan air mi' inntinn
Ged a sheòl mi air m' aineol

Cha robh ròpa 's cha robh òirleach
Nuair a reoth ann nach robh trì ann

Ged a sheòl mi air m' aineol
Cha laigh smalan air mi' inntinn
Ged a sheòl mi air m' aineol

Chaill sinn craiceann ar làmhan
Bha ar gàirdeanan sgìth dheth

Ged a sheòl mi air m' aineol
Cha laigh smalan air mi' inntinn
Ged a sheòl mi air m' aineol

Cha còignear nan seasamh
'S bha seachdnar nan sìneadh

Ged a sheòl mi air m' aineol
Cha laigh smalan air mi' inntinn
Ged a sheòl mi air m' aineol

Trì latha is trì oidhche
'S mi ri chuibhle ri droch shìde

Ged a sheòl mi air m' aineol
Cha laigh smalan air mi' inntinn
Ged a sheòl mi air m' aineol

Nuair a labhair an captain
"Illean tapaidh na dìobraibh

Ged a sheòl mi air m' aineol
Cha laigh smalan air mi' inntinn
Ged a sheòl mi air m' aineol

Nuair a ruigeas sibh cala
Bidh ur drama dhuibh cinnteach"

Ged a sheòl mi air m' aineol
Cha laigh smalan air mi' inntinn
Ged a sheòl mi air m' aineol

Tha lionn-diubh aig mo mhàthair
Is dùil aic' nach till mi

Ged a sheòl mi air m' aineol
Cha laigh smalan air mi' inntinn
Ged a sheòl mi air m' aineol
Cha laigh smalan air mi' inntinn
Ged a sheòl mi air m' aineol

    General CommentI've heard that in English, the title of this song is "Although I've Sailed to Foreign Countries" (or something like that at least).

    General CommentThis song is about a ship sailing on a voyage to/through/from Boston. You can tell if you look at the first verse: "'S ann à Boston a sheòl sinn/Dol air bhoidse chun na h-Ìnnsinn" In translation, it's: "We sailed (to/through/from) Boston on a voyage (to/through) the Indies"
