hi, all! anybody out there have this one? it was sung by carthach mac craith on danu's cd danu. the words aren't in o'baoill or jifss. nothin' on google, either, just references to the track. i'm pretty sure i've heard this before as a fiddle tune, but i can't even find any history on it.

The tune is also called the south wind, I think, (recorded by among others, The Chieftains, and also sung by Archie Fischer(?)) The lyrics are in the cd-booklet to the Danú cd.

It may be in the cd liner, but I'm too poor to buy it presently. Guess it's an itch I'll have to scratch later!

Frank Maher has graciously forwarded me the words!

fr the singing of Carthach Mac Craith:

Dá mbeadh agam ór agus airgead
Ní fhanfainn anso trí seachtaine
In achrann leis an ndealbhas
Ach thogfainn tí thar teorainn.

Fallaí árda marmair,
Fuinneóga breaghta geala air
Órnáidí an t-saoghail ann bailithe –
Is chuirfinn díom chun bóthair.

Thógfainn seó. chun farraige
Go mbeadh an domhain fé'm aitheantas,
Fáilte in gach halla rogham
'S gan cip na glas ar dhóirse.

Ach cad a dheanfainn féin le'm asailín,
Is le'm ghabhar a thugadh bainne dom,
An botháinín is an garraidhe bead,
An cat 'san gadhairín gleóite?

'Sé cradh an tsaoghail-se an t-airgead,
Bíodh sé gann no fairsing agat
Beidh rud go deó in easnamh ort –
Mar an gobadán sa scéoilín.

Fallai arda marmair,
Fuinneóga breaghtha geala air
Órnáidí an t-saoghail ann bailithe –
Is chuirfinn díom chun bóthair.

'Sé chrá an tsaoil-se an t-airgead,
Bíodh sé gann no fairsing agat
Beidh rud go deo in easnamh ort –
Mar an gobadán sa scéoilín.
