PHEIGIN MO CHROI (recorded by Dervish)

A Pheigin mo chara is a Pheigin mo chroi
Ce he an fear fada ud timpeall an ti
Oooh, Pheigin mo chroi

A Pheadar mo chara is a Pheadar mo chroi
Sin e do mhaicin nach bhfaca tu riamh
Oooh Pheadar mo chroi

Shuil mise thoir is shuil mise thiar
Is feasog ar leambh ni fhaca me riamh
Oooh, Pheigin mo chroi

A Pheadar mo chara is a Pheadar mo chroi
Eirigh do sheasamh 'gus reitigh greim bia
Oooh, Pheigin mo chroi

Pheigin mo gara is a Pheigin mo chroi
Nil ins an teach ach aon greim mine bui
Oooh, Pheigin mo chroi

A Pheadar mo chara is a Pheadar mo chroi
In iochtar mo mhala ta caca mine bui
Oooh, Pheigin mo chroi

Pheigin mo gara is a Pheigin mo chroi
Ta an caca seo ro fada nil in aon chaoi bui
Oooh, Pheigin mo chroi

'S a Pheadar mo chara suifimis sios
Na fagfas an baile chomh 's mhairfeas me riamh
Oooh Pheigin mo chroi

Pheigin mo gara is a Pheigin mo chroi
Ce he an fear fada timpeall an ti
Oooh, A gra gheal mo chroi

There's a version of this song by Joe Heaney available on CD as well. I used to have the vinyl version, but invested in the digital version. Quality will out, no matter what the medium.

Peigín 's Peadar

"A Pheigín na gcarad 's a Pheigín mo chroí,
Cé hé an fear fada údan sínte leat síos?
Ó a hó, a mhaithín ó, ó a mhaithín ó, a stóirín mo chroí."

"A Pheadair na gcarad 's a Pheadair mo chroí,
Sin é do leanbh nach bhfaca tú riamh."

"Muise shiúil mise thoir agus shiúil mise thiar,
Ach féasóg ar leanbh ní fhaca mé riamh!"

"Muise a Pheadair na gcarad 's a Pheadair mo chroí,
Tá scór bliain caite ó d'fhág tú mo thí."

"A Pheigín na gcarad 's a pheigín mo chroí,
Éirigh i do sheasamh 'gus réitigh greim bídh."

"Ach a Pheadair na gcarad 's a Pheadair mo chroí,
Níl ins an teach agam greim mine buí."

"'S a Pheigín na gcarad 's a pheigín mo chroí,
In íochtar mo mhála tá cáca mine buí."

"Muise a Pheadair na gcarad 's a Pheadair mo chroí,
Tá an cáca seo a'at lán de ghineachaí buí."

"'S a Pheigín 's a mhaicín suífidh muid síos,
Ní fhágfad an baile chúns mhairfeas mé arís."


Peigín and Peadar

"Peigín my friend and Peigín my heart,
Who is that tall man stretched alongside you?
Oh a ho, my love, oh a ho, my love, oh love of my heart."

"Peadar my friend and Peadar my heart,
That is you baby whom you never saw."

"For I walked east and I walked west,
But a beard on a baby I have never before seen!"

"Oh Peadar my friend and Peadar my heart,
Twenty years have passed since you left my house."

"Peigín my friend and Peigín my heart,
Rise up now and prepare some food."

"Ah but Peadar my friend and Peadar my heart,
I have not a grain of yellow meal in the house."

"Peigín my friend and Peigín my heart,
In the bottom of my bag there is a yellow meal cake."

"Ah Peadar my friend and Peadar my heart,
This cake you have is full of golden guineas!"

"Oh my Peigín and my son we will sit down,
And I'll never leave home again for as long as I live."

I heard Dervish doing a wonderful version of a tune which seemed to be about a girl, Peigin Mo Chroi, awhile back on the Thistle and Shamrock. I wonder if this is the same as the tune of crossword puzzle fame, unknown to me other than by the title, Peg 0' My Heart, and if anyone knows the lyrics?

I should have mentioned that the copyright was renewed in 1941. I won't be posting it here. Fred Fisher also wrote "There's A Broken Heart For Every Light On Broadway". There is no connection between the two songs, as far as I can see, except the coincidence of the titles.

A well-known song in Connemara (West of Ireland)
The singer Seosamh Ó hÉanaí is the main source I used with verse 4 (20 years away from home) from Peadar Ó Ceannabháin.
It is said that Seosamh Ó hÉanaí gave a version to 'The Dubliners' which they recorded as 'Seven Drunken Nights'.
See vinyl record on the 'Topic' label called 'Joe Heaney, Irish Traditional Songs in Gaelic and English' publ. 1963 No. 12T 91.
On this record, Joe Heaney (= Seosamh Ó hÉanaí) not only sings the song but also tells a lovely folk tale which sets the song in context.
Get it ......and enjoy it. Superb singing.
Go n-éirí leat.

Aha! - Joe Heaney, now I get it. It's also on a CD called THE BEST OF JOE HEANEY (it only has 13 songs, a short list to be called his best, I'd think). You can hear RealAudio Peigín 's Peadar click here

This is what Dirty Linen now writes about a grouping of 'the Best' from Shanachie.

Dirty Linen

John Doherty - The Celebrated Recordings Shanachie 34020 (1997)

Joe Heaney - The Best of Joe Heaney Shanachie 34019 (1997)

Joe & Antoinette McKenna - The Best of Joe and Antoinette McKenna Shanachie 78012 (1997)

These three "best of" additions to the Shanachie catalog prove that the label is still a major force in the world of traditional Irish music and signal a renaissance of sorts in the Shanachie Irish roster.

RunrigFan posted a Scottish Gaelic translation in another (new) Mudcat thread. I've copied and pasted it here.

PEIGI IS PEADAR
(translated from Irish to Scottish Gaelic by Brian Ó hEadhra)

A Pheigi a ghràidhag 's a Pheigi mo chridh'
Cò am fear fad' ud tha sìnte sìos

Ò a hò, ò a hò
Ò a hò, a stòir is mo chridh'

A Pheadair a charaid 's a Pheadair mo chridh'
'S e sin do leanabh nach fhaca tu riamh

O shiubhail mise sear agus shiubhail mise siar
Ach feusag ar leanabh chan fhaca mi 'riamh

A Pheigi a ghràidhag 's a Pheigi mo chridh'
Èirigh nad sheasamh is deasaich greim bidh

A Pheadair a charaid 's a Pheadair mo chridh'
Chan eil san taigh agamsa greim mine buidh

A Pheigi a ghràidhag 's a Pheigi mo chridh
An iochdar mo mhalaid tha cèic mine buidh

'S a Pheigin 's mo mhacan suidheamaid sìos
Ch fhàg mi am baile gu siorraidh a-rithist

Peigi is Peadar
