Rich(bodhránai gan ciall) Tune Req: For Ireland I'd Not Tell Her Name (50) Lyr Add: AR ÉIRINN NÍ NEOSFAINN CÉ HÍ^^ 31 Aug 01


There's a home by the wide Avonmore
That would sweep o'er the broad open sea
And wide rivers where the waves wash ashore
Whilst bulrushes they wave to the breeze
Where the green ivy clings 'round the door
And the birds sweetly sing on each tree
O me Darling, they're tuning their notes
Is ar Éirinn ní neosfainn cé hí

Like a sick man that longs for the dawn
I do long for thae light of her smile
And I pray for my own cailín bán
While I'm waiting for her by the stile
O I'd climb all the hills of the land
And I'd swim all the depths of the sea
To het one kiss of her lily-white hand
Is ar Éirinn ní neosfainn cé hí

I have toiled sore thise years of my life
Through storm, through sunshine and rain
And I would surely venture my life
For to shield her one moment of pain
For she, being my comfort in life
Though my comfort and joy she may be
She's my own, she is my promised wife
Is ar Éirinn ní neosfainn cé hí

O but when I will call her my own
And it's married we both then will be
Like the King and Queen on their throne
We'll be living in sweet unity
O it's then I'll have a home of my own
and I'll rear up a nice family
O it's then that her name will be known
But for Ireland I won't tell her name

As recorded by Dervish on the CD "The End of the Day"^^
