Long shot.... does anyone have the lyrics for this song ?
Searched the web, but only words I find are not the ones sung in the version by Rory Campbell. Have included the YT link.

The following lines—and probably more—can be found in An Tuil: Anthology of 20th Century Scottish Gaelic Verse by Ronald Black (Edinburgh: Polygon, 1996), page 126:

   Fo'n cuid armaibh,

   A bhith 'n coir nam balachan.
Dh'fhalbh na gillean grinn
   Fo'n cuid armaibh.

Gun d'leum iad an truinnse,
   Ruith an cursa direach,...

(Google classifies this book as "snippet view only" so I wasn't able to read any more online. You might be able to find the book in a library.)
