nigelgatherer Lyr Req: Gaelic song to Soldier's joy fiddle tune (6) RE: Lyr Req: Gaelic song to Soldier's joy fidlle tune 13 Dec 18


1) from 'Eilean Fraoich - Lewis Gaelic Songs and Melodies" (Lewis, 1982):

'N am amadan, 'n am amadan a bha mi riamh,
'N am amadan, 'n am amadan a bha mi riamh,
'N am amadan, 'n am amadan a bha mi riamh,
A' mire rise na caileagan
A chaill mi mo chiall.

A t-amadan, an t-amadan, an t-amadan gun chiall,
A t-amadan, an t-amadan, an t-amadan gun chiall,
A t-amadan, an t-amadan, an t-amadan gun chiall,
Is iomadh a tha ann an duigh
A rinn an rud ciant.

2) from 'Puirt-a-Beul' (Keith Norman MacDonald, Glasgow 1901. New edition Skye 2012)

Nam amadan, nam amadan a bha mi riamh,
Nam amadan, nam amadan a bha mi riamh,
Nam amadan, nam amadan a bha mi riamh,
Nuair a chitin fein na caileagan,
Cha bhlaisinn air a' bhiadh.

(A fool I was, a fool I always was,
A fool I was, a fool I always was,
A fool I was, a fool I always was,
When I'd see the ladies
I wouldn't touch food.)
