The Mist Covered Mountains



Chì mi na mòrbheanna is a Scottish song that was written in 1856 by Highlander John Cameron. The song is a longing for home and, with its wistful, calming melody and traditional ballad rhythms, is often used as a lullaby. A Gaelic arrangement of the song was recorded on Cape Breton, Nova Scotia folk singer John Allan Cameron’s 1973 album “Lord Of The Dance”, and The Rankin Family’s debut album (1989). The song was also played during the funeral of John F. Kennedy.
