Thread Name: Lyr Req: Mo Ghile Mear (from Sting/Chieftains)
Subject: Lyr Add: MO GHILE MEAR (in English and Irish)
She Malech mo ghile mear
she ma cesar glile mear
sun na shen ni forers fain
o cuegg igain mo ghile mar

Grief and pain are all I know
my heart is sore my tears aflow
we saw him go our buchal beau
no word we know of him och on

A proud and gallant chevalier
a high man's scian of gentle mien
a fiery blade engaged to reap
he'd break the bravest in the field

come sing his praise as sweet harps play
and proudly toast his noble frame
with spirit and with mind aflame
so wish him strenght and lenght of day
