PJ Help: wedding song to make you cry! (39) ADD: Huree, Huroo (Tiree Love song) 14 Jan 00

There is a lovely traditional scottish(?) song called Huree, Huroo. The lyrics are:

Huree, Huroo, my bonnie wee lass,
Huree, Huroo, my fair one
And will you come away, my love, to be my own
My rare one?

Smiling the land, smiling the sea,
Sweet was the smell of the heather,
Would we were yonder, just you and me
The two of us together


All the day long, down by the peat,
Then by the shore in the gloaming,
Tripping it lightly with dancing feet,
And we together roaming.

And will ye come away, my love,
To be my own, my rare one?
This song has been recorded actually accapella, by a celtic harpist/singer by the name of Roger Helfrick. He has a beautiful voice and gets quite a bit of airplay on CKUA radio -awesome site for folk!! They have a website in real audio. Contact Andy Donelly at CKUA, and he will put you in touch with Roger if you would like a CD.
