Old and still popular folk song, also known as Hebridean fairy's love lilt.
(The song can also be sung by a man since the legend is that it was a male fairy who fell in love with a young lady)
The original Gaelic words are anonymous (traditional)
The wording in Lowlands Scots is by James Hogg (from his Ettrick Shepherd).
The video is a live performance by David W Solomons (using the James Hogg Lowland Scots version of the words).
