Clann an drumma - The exile

Tak' ma hand an' shake it fur the last time
Wan mair kiss goodbye then across the sea fur me
Am oan ma way oan a journey o' a lifetime
A lifetime nae longer free tae me
This leakin' ship keeps rollin' oan forever
Another ay ma clan, sittin' next tae me
Speakin' in the language o' oor faithers
He says "Are you an exile like me?"

Ah left ma land, ma home, ma dreams forever
Forever in exile ah will be
Left ma land, ma home, ma dreams forever
Forever in exile ah will be


Who will tell the tales o' oor country
Alba's story must be carried oan
Who will sing aloud of her glories
Oor children will sing her ancient songs

Left ma land, ma home, ma dreams forever
Forever in exile ah will be
Left ma land, ma home, ma dreams forever
Forever in exile ah will be

Alba, Alba, Alba, forever in exile ah will be
