Hello
I am searching for the tune, lyrics and back ground information for a song that I believe is Welsh - Rise up on a New Years Morning.
Any help would be so wonderful.
Thank you.
Rose

Probably it isn't. So, could you say a bit more about the song? That will help others here to assist you in finding it.

Hello
Thank you for the help.

The song is sung by Phil Tanner/Gower Garland. I do not have that CD or album. I am located in the USA. I am so curious about this song. I read somewhere that the song is Welsh. I don't remember exactly where I got that information. I believe I remember the song was from South Wales. This is all I know. I would love to know the melody and lyrics.

Thanks again!
Rose

The first link seems to have been spot on.

Rose, Calennig sang "Rise Up a New Year's Morning" on their CD "A Gower Garland" which was released in 2000 to mark the 50th anniversary of the death of Phil Tanner. They noted:

"By the time the Rev J.D. Davies wrote The History of West Gower in 1879, wassailing was a tradition that had died out in Gower apart from the parish of Llangennith, where this song was sung by children on New Year's Morning."

A New Year's Song in The History of West Gower

Get up, a new year's morning,
For the cocks are all a-crowing;

Chorus (after each verse):
And if you think we are too soon,
And if you think we are too soon,
Rise up and look at the stars and the moon.
A row de dow de dow de dow de row de dow de do

Rise and light the fire
And make us toast and beer

Come, rise and don't be lazy
For we are getting crazy

Calennig sing Rise Up a New Year's Morning

Rise up a New Year's morning
For the cocks are all a-crowing

Chorus (after each verse):
And if you think we are too soon
And if you think we are too soon
Rise up and look at the stars and the moon
Row de dow de, row de dow de, row de dow de day
Row de dow de, row de dow de, row de dow de day

Rise up and light the fire
And bring us toast and beer

Rise up and don't be lazy
For we are getting crazy

The tune for Calennig's version was written by Mick Tems.
