Subject: Blackthorn
From: The Celtic Bard
Date: 02 Jun 01 - 02:05 AM

Does anybody have the lyrics for this song? In my search of previous threads, the lyrics that I found given were not the ones that I was looking for. The version that I know goes something like this:

So many men think that that I am theirs
When I sit with them, when I drink with them
Nothing compares to all that was shared
Between you and I, between you and I

CHORUS: Small things on the mountain that out-shines them all
And my love is wise and (?) blossom on the blackthorn

So many men reach for the highest branch
To find the bitter fruit, to find the bitter fruit
Close within reach of their hand lies the sweetest berry
On the lowest branch, on the lowest branch

Snow falls on my mountain that's sleeping below
And my love is but a small (?) blossom on the blackthorn

This, however, is only what I thought I heard on the CD. Can anybody correct this version?

Thanks.

Rebecca

Roger, it was sung my Anu/na on the "Celtic Twilight 4: Celtic Planet" CD.

Thanks for the effort.

Looking for lyrics to Sooner Lay Blackthorn, or is it Rather Lay Blackthorn? Sloe picking time is upon us, and I must replenish my stock of Sloe Gin.

Lyrics copied from Celtic Lyrics Corner. I also listened to the recording on Spotify and made one small correction:

        
BLACKTHORN
Written by Michael McGlynn
As sung by Anúna on "Deep Dead Blue" (2004), "The Best of Anúna" (2010) and several other albums.

So many men think that I am theirs
When I sit with them, when I drink with them.
Nothing compares to all that was shared
Between you and I, between you and I.

Snow falls on the mountain of Sliabh Uí Fhloinn,
And my love is like sloe-blossom on the blackthorn.

So many men reach for the highest branch
To find the bitter fruit, to find the bitter fruit,
When close within reach of the hand lies the sweetest berry
On the lowest branch, on the lowest branch.

Snow falls on the mountain of Sliabh Uí Fhloinn,
And my love is like sloe-blossom on the blackthorn.
