AN TOLL DUBH (THE DUNGEON)

VERSE 1:
Taobh cùil an doruis cha bhi grian
Suidh aig bòrd
Cha bhi biadh 's cha bhi fìon
Taobh cùil an doruis cha bhi grian
Cha bhi biadh 's cha bhi fìon

CHORUS:
Le èiginn ar n-èirigh às ar suain
Le èiginn ar n-èirigh às ar suain
An Gaidheal 'sa leabaidh
An Gaidheal 'na shuain
Le èiginn ar n-èirigh às ar suain

VERSE 2:
Thàinig e à Sasainn ann
Thàinig e
Le eachaibh luath is iuchair throm
Thàinig e à Sasainn ann
Le eachaibh luath is iuchair throm
(CHORUS)

VERSE 3:
Air làr 'san toll-dhubh cha bhi grian
Cha bhi gealach
'S dubh an oidhche chaidleas sinn
Air làr 'san toll-dhubh cha bhi grian
'S dubh an oidhche chaidleas sinn
(CHORUS 2x)

English Lyrics:
VERSE 1:
On the other side of the door there will be no sun
Sitting at the table
There will be no food and no wine
On the other side of the door there will be no sun
There will be no food and no wine

CHORUS:
It is with difficulty that we will rise from our slumber
It is with difficulty that we will rise from our slumber
The Gael has gone to bed
The Gael is asleep
It is with difficulty that we will rise from our slumber

VERSE 2:
He came from the south
He came
On a fast horse and with a heavy key
He came from the south
On a fast horse and with a heavy key

VERSE 3:
On the dungeon floor there will be no sun
There will be no moon
Dark will be the night as we sleep
On the dungeon floor there will be no sun
Dark will be the night as we sleep

England indeed but the translator just said "from the south."

Does anyone know if an toll dubh as a dungeon predates the Black Hole of Calcutta?

Yes, Sasainn is England, and Sasainnach is Englishman.
Jim Willsher's lyrics page just says "south", though.

'S e do bheatha.

Southron is the common word in Lowland Scots for English. (and Sasunnach can refer to any anglophone including Lowlanders)
