Sarah, they are in the Forum, just click here, and if that doesn't take you right to them, scroll down until you find Philippa's post. Gaelic and English both.

Anyone have some lyrics to this song. I heard Kathleen MacInnes sing it on the Highland Sessions. I've found some lyrics but they dont quite match what she sings.
Also any info about her would be great, a CD maybe ? out there somewhere ?
Oiche mhaith

Google that, Malachy. The song--at least a version of the lyris is there in Gaelic and English.

Bliain an taca seo dimigh uaim run mo chleibh
Ni thiocfaidh se abhaile go dtabharfaidh se cursa an tsaoil
Nuair chifead e rithead le fuinneamh ro-ard ina chomhair
agus chludod le mil e, is e Jimmy mo mhile stor.

Bionn mo mhathair is mathair ag bearradh is ag bruion liom fein
taim giobaithe piocaithe, ciapaithe, craite de mshaol
Thugas taitneamh don duine ud dob aille sno
agus chuaigh se ar bord loinge, is e Jimmy mo mhile stor

Rachadsa chun coille agus caithfead ann an chuid eile de mshoal
san ait na beidh einne ag eisteacht le ceol na n-ean
ag bun an chrainn chaorthainn mar a bhfasann ann fear go leor
ag tabhart taitnamh don duine ud is e Jimmy mo mhile stor

JIMMY MO MHÍLE STÓR

Bliain an taca seo d'imigh mo ghrá uaim féin,
Ní thiocfaidh sé abhaile go dtuga sé cúrsa an tsaoil,
Nuair a fheicead mo ghile rithfead le fuinneamh na chóir,
Agus clúdódh le mil é, is é Jimmy mo mhíle stór.

Bíonn mo mháthair is m'athair go síoraí ag bruíon liom féin,
Dá rá gur lem' boige do mealladh mé i dtús mo shaoil,
Mise dá fhulaingt go dubhach is ag sileadh na ndeor
Le cumann dom chumann, is é Jimmy mo mhíle stór.

A chailíní deasa, déanaigí brón díbh féin,
Mar go bhfuilimse fuirsithe stracaithe cráite ón saol.
thugas cumann do dhuine ba bhinne is ba bhreátha snó
Do chuaigh ar bord loinge uaim, is é Jimmy mo mhíle stór.

Rachadh go bun coille agus caithfeadh ann deireadh mo shaoil,
an ball ná labharfaidh aoinne eile, ach ceol na n-éan,
Ball ná sileann aon bhile ann, geimhreadh ná fómhar,
Ó chuaigh ar bord loinge uaim Jimmy mo mhíle stór.


My love he's gone from me, no fairer than him can be found,
He'll never return until he course the wide world around.
When I'll see my love coming I'll crown him with laurel all o'er,
He's the neatest of lovers called Jimmy mo mhíle stór.

My father and mother they never can give me ease
Since first my true love went from me to the seas,
I bear it with patience, shedding and sighing full sore,
lamenting the fate of Jimmy, mo mhíle stór.

I'll go to the greenwood and spend there all of my time,
where no man or mortal can ever disturb my mind,
Beneath the green willow I'll lament and sigh full sore,
And I'll wait on my pillow for Jimmy mo mhíle stór.

I'm under the impression that Jimmy Crowley wrote "Jimí Mo Mhíle Stór," but I may be mistaken.

No - it's an oldie. The English language version turns up in 19C. songbooks with the Irish phrase rendered phonetically in any of several ways, IIRC. Jimmy certainly popularised it at one stage.

I'll check out the origins when I have a chance.

The music for this is in my ONeill's Music of Ireland, in the Songs and Airs section. My book is a facsimile of the 1903 edition. The intro says the music was collected in Chicago between 1890 and 1900.

There are two different tunes, both in 6/8 time. The Irish title is "Seamus mo mile stor" with a dot over the m in mile. The English is "James my thousand treasures."

You;re welcome. For one thing, it establishes that the tunes given would be public domain.
