Lyrics

I would I were on yonder hill
It's there I'd sit and cry my fill
And every tear would turn the mill
Is go dté tú mo mhúirnin slán

Siúl siúl siúl a rún
Siúl go socair 'is siúl go ciúin
Siúl go doras agus éalaigh liom
Is go dté tú mo mhúirnin slán

I'll sell my rock I'll sell my reel
I'll sell my only spinning wheel
For to buy my love a coat of steel
Is go dté tú mo mhúirnin slán

Siúl siúl siúl a rún
Siúl go socair 'is siúl go ciúin
Siúl go doras agus éalaigh liom
Is go dté tú mo mhúirnin slán

I'll dye my petticoats I'll dye them red
And round the world I'll beg for bread
Until my parents would wish me dead
Is go dté tú mo mhúirnin slán

Siúl siúl siúl a rún
Siúl go socair 'is siúl go ciúin
Siúl go doras agus éalaigh liom
Is go dté tú mo mhúirnin slán

And now my love has gone to France
To try his fortune to advance
If he ne'er came back there'll be but a chance
Is go dté tú mo mhúirnin slán

Siúl siúl siúl a rún
Siúl go socair 'is siúl go ciúin
Siúl go doras agus éalaigh liom
Is go dté tú mo mhúirnin slán
