I heard Mairi MacInnes sing this but under a different name.

I heard other versions trying to remember who did them.

Found at CelticLyricsCorner.net, where it says this was performed by Margaret Stewart on her album "Colla Mo Rùn."

Gàidhlig (Scottish Gaelic)

THÉID IS GUN TÉID E LEAM

Sèist:
Théid is gun téid e leam
Leam-sa gun téid mo leannan
Théid is gun téid e leam

Théid mo leannan leam a phòsadh
Dh'aindeoin 's na tha beò 's na chailleadh

Théid mo leannan leam a sheòladh
Luingeas mhór na' ròpan fada

Seòlaidh sinn a-null air fairge
'S fàgaidh sinn aig Alba beannachd

Théid e leam a-null air chuantan
Far nach toir 'ad bhuain a' fearann

Mar a nìthear na'r dùthaich
'S fheudar cùl thoirt dhith dh'ar n-aindeoin

Buailibh luaidhibh an clò
'Son briogais phòsda dha mo leannan

Buidhe, buidhe mar a' sìthean
Fear dhan tug mi fhìn mo ghealladh

(Sèist 2x)

English

HE WILL GO, HE WILL GO WITH ME

Chorus (after each verse):
He will go, he will go with me
With me, my beloved with go
He will go, he will go with me

My beloved will go with me to be married
Despite whoever lives or dies

My beloved will go and sail with me
The big ship of the long ropes

We will sail over the ocean
And we'll leave Scotland a blessing

He will go with over the seas
Where they will not take the land from us

As is done in our country
We must unwillingly turn our backs on Scotland

Strike it and waulk the tweed, my loved ones
To make wedding trousers for my beloved

Twice yellow as the flower
The one to whom I gave my promise

(Chorus 2x)

This version is quite different from the original which was written by Uilleam MacCoinnich / William Mackenzie from Baile Mhic Phadruig in Inverness. The Chorus is identical other than "she / i" being replaced by "he / e".
