I'm hoping someone out there knows of a good Scottish Gaelic song database which isn't an appendix to some wacko site about elves and Celtic mysticism (ack...) or can help me with the words to this song. I have a recording of it but can't work out a few bits (I'm only a learner!)
Beannachd leibh, H

All I could find containing "fhada/fada bhuainn" was a song called "I See Winter" and it did not have Anna in it. Sorry

Thanks Sorcha I know that one 'Chi mi'n Geamhradh' but no not the one I'm looking for. I thought maybe I should put a bit of it up to see if it jogs anyone's memory:

O, s'fhada bhuainn Anna
e ho, rin ho ni do leannan
O, s'fhada bhuainn Anna
Chuala mi gun (thiult?) thu 'n t-armunn
Mac 'ic Bhearnaraigh na Hearadh
O, s'fhada...
Chuala mi gun (thiult) thu 'n t-uasal
a chruachan 's le (????)

Aaargh! it's driving me nuts not being able to work it out. Answers on a postcard please

Refreshing again given the recent flurry of activity on the Ba mo leanabh thread. Anyone know this one? It's on a solo cd by Rory Campbell, piper in Deaf Shepherd and Old Blind Dogs...

Fingers crossed! :-)

Puh-leeeze, George (eyes shut and fingers crossed again)....any luck? I really want the last few words to this song and I'm drawing a total blank with all my normal search methods (and my Gaelic's still not good enough to work it all out from the recording).
Here's another bit:

Mas e uaisle a tha thu ag iarraidh
Their ort cias a-nall am Barraigh,
O, 's fhada bhuainn Anna...
Feumaidh tu bhi (dhanuail?) rioghail,
Na faigh thu Mac Neill a Barraigh,
O, 's fhada bhuainn Anna...
Feumaidh tu bhi (dhanuail?) uasal
Na faigh thu Ruaraidh mo leannan,
O, 's fhada bhuainn Anna
E ho, rin ho ni do leannan
O, 's fhada bhuainn Anna.

Lyrics: English Translation:
   
Sčist: Chorus (after each verse):
O 's fhada bhuainn Anna Oh far from us is Anna
He hoireann o, 'n i do leannan? He hoireann o, is she your sweetheart?
O 's fhada bhuainn Anna Oh far from us is Anna
   
Chuala mi gun d'dhiult thu'n t-armunn I heard that you refused the stalwart
Mac Fhir Bhearnaraidh na Hearadh Son of the Laird of Berneray in Harris
   
Chuala mi gun d' dhiult thu'n t-uasal I heard that you refused the noble
Le chruachan 's le thaighean geala With his stacks and his white houses
   
Gu de nist a bhios tu'g iarraidh Who, then, do you want
'S nach gabh thu iarla no baran? When you won't take earl nor baron?
   
Chuala mi gun dtug thu'n __ I heard that you __
__ na Hearadh __ Harris
   
Ma's e uaisle tha thu'g iarraidh If it's nobility you are after
Thoir ort Ciosamul am Barraigh Make for Kismul on Barra
   
Feumaidh tu bhith dha'n fhuil rioghail You have to be of royal blood
Mu faigh thu MacNeill a Barraigh In order to get Mac Neil of Barra
   
Feumaidh tu bhith dhan fhuil uasail You must be of noble blood
Mu faigh thu Ruairidh mar leannan To win Rory as your loved one
