Beanacht ó Rí na hAoine

Beir bheannacht ó Rí na hAoine ar an oileáinín ina bhfuilim ann
Mar go bh'fhearr liom lá is oíche ann ná bliain ar an mbaile úd thall
Is ann do bhíodh an ríl againn, ceol píob is leann ar chlár
Is slán ag an gcorn bhuí úd, a bhíodh á lionadh de'n mbranda ab fhearr

Éiróidh mise amárach gan spleachas le cúnamh Dé
Ní fhanfaidh mé san áit seo go brách, brách ar feadh mo shaol
Mar is é do chómhrá tláth lag, do chráig is do mharaibh mé
Is, a Dhia, nach olc an bháis é atá in ann dom má scarfaim léi

Is ar choinnleach glas an fhómhair bhuí, a stóirín, 'sea do dhearcas tú
Ba dheas do chois i mbróigín, is ba ró-dheas do leagan siúil
Do ghruaig ar dhath an óir-bhuí, na córdaí go fite id' lúb
Is nach trua nach lándúin phósta sinn, ar bhord loinge ag dull anonn

Is thíos ar ché Phort Láirge, tá an t-árthach um bhrath le comhair
Chun mé do bhreith thar sáile, is go brách, brách ní chasfaidh mé
Beidh mo mhuintir is mo chairde, go cásfar ag gol im' dhiadh
Is anois ó raghainn thar sáile, céad slán leis an Bhlascaoid Mór

Peter has probably found all that. Sorry, I can't help with sheet music unless some other mudcatter can transcribe from mp3

Thanks Guest Phillipa for the info, but still looking for dots or ABC - all my usual places have drawn a blank

Well, Peter, I see that you still have your hopes up. I work out MIDI's to tunes rather often, so let me explain something. That song would be a nightmare to write down. It alternates long, drawn-out notes with mad ornaments involving idiosyncratic timing.

The hardest part of noting a song is getting the timing.   When the timing involves things like dots, 32nd notes, triplets, fourthlets and fifthlets -- well, 'that way madness lies.'

Perhaps someone else can notate the song, but I'm afraid it's unlikely.
