Thread Name: Chord Req: Young Ned of the Hill
Subject: Chords Add: EAMANN AN CHNOIC
Assuming it's the trad song, breezy & Cathy Ryan have nailed it, I'm sure.

The following supplementary attempt is Foolish of me (but, at my age why change now?:) because I play neither the guitar nor any other instrument (bit of the tin whistle, but I said "instrument":); nor do I read music (haul away O hear me sing, I'll prove it to yez); NOR do I have the gaelic. Accordingly, with these eminent qualifications, (and begging yer kind pardon pleezy, breezy) --

Hereinbelow, transcribed (including phrasing hyphenations) from The Irish Songbook copyright 1969 by Tiparm Music Publishers Inc., is The Clancy Brothers and Tommy Makem version -- with *their* chords (any good?? I dunno) as best I can place 'em in the first verse (hope the placements survive transmission); in the Irish, as best I can type it but **without the crucial accent marks** (sorry! "I dunno how it works!" - Wizard of Oz); and with the CBros&TM phonetic (fanatic?) spellings below each line. Please be tolerant. (Gaeltacht 'Cats - fix it up??) / As approximately set forth below, this was recorded longlong ago as a Liam Clancy solo. / Thanks. - da Pook

Faoi schneachta is faoi shioc
Fwee nock-thes fwee huck

'S gan danacht agam ar aon neach;
Sgon dhawn-ockt ah-gum err ain nock

Mo sheireach gan scor
Muh hesh-ruck gawn scur

Mo bhranar gan chur
Muh vron-ur gawn cur

Is gan iad agam ar aon chor!
Iss gawn eedh ah-gum err ain cur!

Nil caraid agam

Do glacfadh me moch na deanach,
Dhu glock-hug may muck naw day-nock,

'S go gcaithfidh me dul

Thar farraige soir
Horr for-igg-ah sirr,

O iss ann na fuil aon de m' ghaoltaibh.
Os oun naw fwill ain them gwale-thiv.
