Subject: Lyr Req: Emigrant(s) by the Fureys
From: Chris Coville

Hi Folks!

Does anybody know where to find the lyrics of the song "Emigrant(s)"? Eddie Furey sang it accompanied by his brothers and Davey Arthur in the late 70's at the WDR Folk Fest in Cologne, Germany.

Thanks in advance!

According to Allmusic.com, Davey Arthur wrote a song called THE EMIGRANT. It is on the album by "Davey Arthur & Co." called "Celtic Side Saddle," 1994.

The brief sound sample provided at Allmusic contains no lyrics, only synthesizer music.

Is this the right song?

Bru, the mp3 would be highly welcome!
Yes, Jim. This is probably the song. I found a Gaelic version on youtube (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jt217pcSD5c) sung by Davey but am still searching for the English words to it.

THE EMIGRANT, performed by Davey Arthur & Co., on "Celtic Side Saddle" can be heard on Spotify. All the words I heard sounded like Gaelic to me, therefore I can't transcribe them. (I did, however, recognize the phrase "asthore machree"—however you spell that—familiar only because it appears in so many Irish songs.)

Do we know for certain that it has English words?

It has English words and it is the next one on my "attempt to transcribe" list. It will not be easy but a search with some easier to understand phrases brought up nothing in the web. Look here in about two weeks. You'll either find a decent transcription with some mistakes left or a text fragment full of gaps.

Unsurprisingly, it's on the LP record titled "The Emigrant" which I've been "digitising". I'll post you the lyrics later today.
Would it not be on the Fureys website ?

Very difficult to make out some of the lyrics, but maybe someone else can fill in the gaps.
The tune is traditional - I'm sure I've heard the late Michael O'Dhomhnaill [RIP] sing a song in Gaelic to the same melody, either with the "Bothy Band" or when he was in a duo with Kevin Burke. I'll try to track that down.
The Polydor record label credits words to "E,Furey, D.Arthur".

"Emigrant"

"When sweet [ days ? ] they do arise
And you hear that sounds of butterflies
Or the spirit of some [ crimson ?] rose
Or the echo of that [ sea sand shore ? ]
It is the hour I leave this place
Made fair by you and you alone
So here's Godspeed one last embrace
Way down below them stepping stones.

And in that stream long leaf flowers weep
Way down below that [ ??? ] strand
Like between a rainbow and the sun
My boat sets seaward from the land
And love may come and love may go
Just like that bird from tree to tree
But when she sleeps, her heart I know
Will wander with me on the sea"

How much more easy it is to listen to an already transcribed song than to do the transcription from scratch. Thanks, Kenny.

I have that song on tape and don't know from where I copied it.

I also hear "days", "crimson", and "sea sand shore".

??? could be "golden" but that's more a guess from the possible sense than from what I actually hear. What I hear might just as well be "goddamned".

Three words I hear very slightly different. I have them in boldface below:

When sweet days they do arise
And you hear the sounds of butterflies
Or the spirit of some crimson rose
Or the echo of that sea sand shore
It is the hour I leave this place
Made fair by you but you alone
So here's Godspeed one last embrace
Way down below them stepping stones.

And in that stream long leaf flowers weep
Way down beyond that golden(?) strand
Like between a rainbow and the sun
My boat sets seaward from the land
And love may come and love may go
Just like that bird from tree to tree
But when she sleeps, her heart I know
Will wander with me on the sea.

Wolfgang

This is what my fellow singer and I heard from the LIVE version with your help. What we hear different is written in capitals. Thanks a million!

When sweet AIRS they do arise
And you hear the sounds of butterflies
Or the spirit of some crimson rose
Or the echo of that sea sand shore
It is the hour I leave this place
Made fair by you but you alone
So here's Godspeed one last embrace
Way down below them stepping stones

And in THE stream long leaf flowers weep
Way down beyond ONE TRODDEN strand
Like between THE rainbow and the sun
My boat sets seaward from the land
And love may come and love may go
Just like that bird from tree to tree
But when she sleeps OUR heart I know
Will wander with BEYOND the sea

"A stor mo chroi" is a very fine song as well, Jim ;)

My dad and I spent forever trying to figure out that lyric listening to it in LP. Eventually I emailed Finbar Furey, and he sent me the full lyrics and guitar tabs for the song.
