Subject: Chord and Translation Req
From: GUEST,Stef
Date: 06 Apr 10 - 10:24 AM

Hey everyone,

lately I discovered a wonderful version of this waulking song in the BBC's Highland Sessions. I'd love to accompany myself with my guitar but I'm crappy with figuring out chords - could anybody help me?

I'd also love a translation - I can figure out most of the words, but I can't get the real meaning of the verses... drives me crazy. A differend version has also been recorded by Capercaillie, but sadly they too don't give a translation.

Anyway, here are the words to it.

Chuir m'athair mise dhan taigh charraideach
(My father sent me to the house of sorrow)

Chuir m'athair mise dhan taigh charraideach
Hi ri huraibhi o ho
'N oidhche sin a rinn e bhanais dhomh
O hi a bho ro hu o ho

'N oidhche sin a rinn e bhanais dhomh
Hi ri huraibhi o ho
Gur truagh a Righ nach b'e m'fhalairidh
O hi a bho ro hu o ho

Gur truagh a Righ nach b'e m'fhalairidh
Hi ri huraibhi o ho
M'a do bhrist mo lamh an t-aran dhomh
O hi a bho ro hu o ho

M'a do bhrist mo lamh an t-aran dhomh
Hi ri huraibhi o ho
M'an d'rinn mo sgian biadh a ghearradh dhomh
O hi a bho ro hu o ho

M'an d'rinn mo sgian biadh a ghearradh dhomh
Hi ri huraibhi o ho
Sheathain chridhe nan sul socair
O hi a bho ro hu o ho

Sheathain chridhe nan sul socair
Hi ri huraibhi o ho
Tha do bhata nochd 's na portaibh
O hi a bho ro hu o ho

Tha do bhata nochd 's na portaibh
Hi ri huraibhi o ho
Och, ma tha, chaneil i socair
O hi a bho ro hu o ho
