I am looking for an old Irish song , its called " Come the Rainbow " now I have not found it yet , but I am wandering if this song could be from the Islands..in the south of Ireland ..it´s very well known here in Iceland ..with Icelandic lyric called " Bíum Bíum Bambaló " :O) this is one of my hobby , to find old Iris...

I have looked in many places , but not found anything about this
song .

I know that many songs and lyrics are from the Islands
around Ireland and Scotland.... this might be from there
but I don´t know how to look .

if any one can help me I would be very glad .
to listen to the song with Icelandic lyric you can go to

myspace.com/rosinokkar

then you can listen to the tune ..

many thanks Skarpi .

Skarpi, you may be thinking of Shule Aroon, also called "Gone the Rainbow" when it was recorded by Peter, Paul & Mary. Do a search on the Mudcat for many threads about this song.

Skarpi, could it be the song that Peter, Paul and Mary called "GONE THE RAINBOW"?
That is a version of Shule Aroon (Siúl a Rúin), an old Irish song that I sing.

Listening to Rósin's song (very pretty) yes, this is what you are looking for.


Many threads here about the song.

I am thinking that it may be interesting to compare the Icelandic version to other versions. Skarpi, would it be possible for you to post the lyrics as you know them and to translate them as well?

Allmusic.com lists several recordings of BÍUM BÍUM BAMBALÓ with sound samples: click here

I listened to them. The sound samples were all instrumental. I didn't recognize the tune. It didn't sound like SHULE AROON / SIÚL A RÚIN.

Better yet, YouTube has several videos of BÍUM BÍUM BAMBALÓ. The most popular one seems to be by Sigur Rós, but that must be a very modern adaptation.

This one and this one, both by unidentified singers, probably show better how it sounds as a traditional lullaby—and tune definitely is SHULE AROON / SIÚL A RÚIN.
