  1. A far croonin is pullin me away
    As I take I wi my cromak to the road
    The far Coollins are puttin love on me
    As I step wi the sunlight for my load

    Shur by Tummel and Loch Rannoch and Locharber I willgo
    By heather tracks wi heaven in their wiles
    If its thinkin in your inner heart braggarts in my step
    You’ve never smelt the tangle
    O the isles
    Oh the far coolins are puttin love on me
    As step I wi' my cromak to the isles
  2. Its by Shiel water the track is to the west
    By Aillort and by Morar to the sea
    The cool cresses I am thinkin o for pluck
    And bracken for a wink on Mothers knee
  3. Its the Blue Islands are pullin me away
    Their laughter puts a leap upon the lame
    The Blue Islands ffom the Skerries to the Lews
    Wi heather honey taste upon each name

The 'Cromack' is the shepherds crook or a walking stick!
