Does anyone have the lyrics to Siúdaibh bhalachaibh recorded by Len Graham on his Do Me Justice album? Does anyone know if this is an Irish or Scottish song?
Go rsibh míle.

Tha m'intinn raoir/Siúdaibh bhalachaibh My mind tonight/Go to it

Scottish Gaelic

The refrain:

Tha m'intinn raoir,
a nochd 'sa raoir,
is fad na h'oidhche bhó-raoir;
Tha m'intinn raoir,
a nochd 'sa raoir,
Aig ceann
tigh Choinnich Dhómhnaill.
(sung twice)

Ged a sheól mi fada bhuaip
Air long nan crannaibh caola
Tha mo chridhe'n Grabhair
Aig Anna Choinnich Dhómhnaill.
(sung twice)

Sioban na mara,
Tha dol seachad air gach taobh dhiom
Iomhaigh mo leannain ann
Anna Choinnich Dhómhnaill.
(sung twice)

the refrain:

Siúdaibh bhalachaibh,
siúdaibh siúdaibh
siúdaibh bhalachaibh siúdaibh
(Sung three times)

siúdaibh bhalachaibh togarrach
togaibh rithe h-aodach

Chuala mi e, chuala, chuala,
chuala mi ag triúir é
(Sung three times)

chuala mi ag ceathrair e
gun d'chuir mo leannan cúl rium
Pósaidh mi i, pósaidh, pósaidh
pósaidh mi ga rireabh
(Sung three times)

pósaidh mi mo nighean donn,
ma tha i'g radh'na fírinn

My mind tonight, and last night,
And all night the night before;
My mind tonight, and last night,
Is at the end of Kenneth Donald's house.

Though I sailed far from her
On the ship of slender masts
My heart is in Gravir
With Anna Kenneth Donald.

The sea's spindrift
Passing on each side
Has the image of my sweetheart
Anna Kenneth Donald.

Go to it lads,

Go to it lads
hoist the sails

I heard it, I heard it,
I heard it from three

I heard it from four
that my sweetheart left me

I will marry her, I will marry
I will marry her indeed

I will marry my brown haired girl,
if she is telling the truth.
