weepiper Lyr Req: O Ba, Ba Mo Leanabh (Mary Jane Lemond) (48) Lyr Add: GUN CHRODH GUN AIGHEAN 07 Apr 02


Hi Peg et al,

Here's the song I found, and here is a blicky to the page I found it at which also has a tune for it. I copied and pasted this and added line breaks so I hope it comes out ok...

[Sisd:]
Ged tha mi gun chrodh, gun aighean,
Gun chrodh-laoigh, gun chaoraich agam,
Ged tha mi gun chrodh, gun aighean,
Gheibh mi fhathast igear grinn.

Fhir a dh'imicheas thar chuantan,
Gilain mle beannachd uamsa
Dh'ionnsaidh igeir a' chil dualaich,
Ged nach d'fhuair mi e dhomh fhn.

'Fhleasgaich thinig nall a Shuaineart,
Bu tu fhin an sr dhuin'-uasal;
Gheibhinn cadal leat gun chluasaig,
Air cho fuar 's g'am biodh an oidhch'.

Gur e mise tha fo mhulad,
'S mi a' tmh 'san t-semar mhullaich;
An leannan bh'agam-sa an uiridh,
Chuir e'n diugh rium cl a chinn.

Nile! 's mise tha gu deurach,
An semar rd a' fuaigheal line;
Chaidh mo leannan do Dhn-Eideann,
'S chan eil dhomh bhi 'ga chaoidh.

Ged tha mi gun chrodh gun chaoraich,
Chan eil mi gun mhaise 'm aodann;
Dh'fhighinn breacan a bhiodh caol dhuit,
'S dheanainn aodaich a bhiodh grinn.

'S ged nach eil mo spridh air lintean
Mo chrodh no mo chaoraich bhidheach,
Bheirinn tochradh dhuit an rdagh,
Cho math ri t ig 'san tr.

Link fixed. --JoeClone, 11-Apr-02.
