Speaking of Jimmy Buffett... while I'm not a big fan of his music, I heard tell of a thing that happened that I wish I'd been there for: apparently, he and his son were taking one of those sailing cruises around the Caribbean (the ones where you actually work, not loaf around), on a smallish boat.  When someone twigged onto who he was, he and his son put on impromptu acoustic concerts a few evenings.

     Love Let Me Home To My Mother performed by Julie Fowlis  (In Gaelic)

    It is all in the lyrics!



    Love, let me home to my mother
    Love, let me home to my mother
    Darling, let me home to my mother

    Love, let me home
    to my mother
    I only came for the cattle.
    It was only last night
    That I heard that my love was herding
    And though you found me at the perimeter of the cattle fold
    Love, let me home as you found me.
    I was clambering up
    the dykes
    And descending the ridges
    When a friendly lad met me
    And he did not enforce his friendship on me.
    Though you were to give me cattle and sheep
    Though you were to give me tethered horses
    Though you were to give me that and men
    Love, let me home as you found me.
    My mother and father will chastise you
    My clan and my relatives will chastise you
    But my three brothers will kill you
    If I don’t return home as I came.
    My mother promised me a gown
    Decorated with the newest of ribbons
    And she promised me a new plaid
    If I return home the way you found me.

    Yes, Scots Gaelic.  I'm glad you noticed that as I overlooked mentioning the difference.

    Also, it appears there may be an error in the English translation as noted below:

    Though you were to give me that and men more.

    From the description:

    "A ghaoil, leig dhachaigh gum mhàthair mi " Love let me home to my mother performed by Julie Fowlis
    Taken from Julie’s fourth studio album, this hypnotic and mysterious song tells the tale of a young girls’ encounter with the ‘each-uisge’ or water-horse."

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Scottish Legends: The each-uisge

    "In Scottish mythology the each-uisge is a supernatural water horse that haunts the Highlands. The name each-uisge  means water horse in Scottish Gaelic. In Ireland the equivalent is the each-uisace, or Ech-Ushkya and on the Isle of Man they have the cabyll-ushtey."

    https://folkrealmstudies.weebly.com/-scottish-legends-the-each-uisge.html

    This "cultural memory" is an aspect of ancient Scottish folk music that I find quite intriguing.

    Agreed.  The ancient mythology clings to that land ( and its people ) like mist on the mountainsides.

    Indeed and such a great visual analogy!

    This source sheds further light on the legend and lyrics of - 
    Love Let Me Home To My Mother

    "The each uisge in human form is attractive and charming, but always has some features that give it away – horse’s hooves, for instance, or hair full of sand and seaweed, or a tendency to whinny in pain. In such cases where an each uisge lover was found out, it is usually killed by the girl’s father or brothers before it can devour her."
