I had a Clancy Bros - Tommy Makem (I think) album in the late '60s.
There was a tune on there that was (I think) a lullaby, sung in a deep voice. The lyrics went something like "on the winds of the night may your fury be lost, May no one who's dear to our island? Ireland? be lost, Blow the winds gently, Come ____ ____ ____ ____, Shine your light
brightly and guide in thy fold? boat? ... I cant get the bleedin tune out
of my head and I havent heard it in 40 years and I cant find it on the internet ... it seems like it was titled Coonawara Lullaby but I dont
know why I think that ... (I'm gettin old).. I'm playin the ukulele now
and I want to learn this song ... Maybe it wasn't Clancy's et al but they were real big in the U.S. then and I was a DJ at a local radio station and I used to play this thing once a week at least ... now I cant for the life of me remember what it was ...any help or links or guidance would be appreciated ...

Connemara Cradle Song??

Connemara Cradle Song
        
(Trad)
On the wings of the wind o'er the dark rolling deep
Angels are coming to watch o'er thy sleep
Angels are coming to watch over thee
So list to the wind coming over the sea

Hear the wind blow love, hear the wind blow
Lean your head over and hear the wind blow

Oh, winds of the night, may your fury be crossed
May no one who's dear to our island be lost
Blow the winds gently, calm be the foam
Shine the light brightly and guide them back home

Hear the wind blow love, hear the wind blow
Lean your head over and hear the wind blow

The currachs are sailing way out on the blue
Laden with herring of silvery hue
Silver the herring and silver the sea
And soon there'll be silver for baby and me

Hear the wind blow love, hear the wind blow
Lean your head over and hear the wind blow

The currachs tomorrow will stand on the shore
And daddy goes sailing, a sailing no more
The nets will be drying, the nets heaven blessed
And safe in my arms dear, contented he'll rest

It looks like a variation of Down in the Valley - it shares the words to the chorus as well.
Words and midi are here.
and at the bottom it gives links to the Connemara Cradle Song.

Yes it is The Connemara Cradle Song, not a variation od Down In The Valley but the other way round, you can find the lyrics and guitar chords on www.unitedirelandtripod.ie

Thanks to everyone ... found some You Tubes on it as well ...
this song is so beautiful it puddles me up .. I used to hum it to my
kids when they were growing up ... i'd give anything to have them
that young and in my arms again for just a day ...
