TIREE LOVE SONG
Traditional
Will you come away my love
To be my own my rare one

Smiling the land, shining the sea
Sweet is the smell o' the heather
Would we were younger you and me
The two of us together

Heree horo my bonnie wee girl
Heree horo my fair one
Will you come away my love
To be my own my rare one

All day long out at the peat
Then on the shore in the gloaming
Stepping it lightly with dancing feet
And then together homing

Heree horo my bonnie wee girl
Heree horo my fair one
Will you come away my love
To be my own my rare one

Laughter above, singing below
Tripping it lithesome and airy
Could we be asking of life for more
My own my darling Mary

Heree horo my bonnie wee girl
Heree horo my fair one
Will you come away my love
To be my own my rare one

Eileen McGann has an incredible version of this song on her album Turn It Around... I prefer to sing her version than the original lyrics.

I think I'll put a copy of this here, so it doesn't get lost. The other thread says there's a text for the song in the Digital Tradition, but I couldn't find it.

There is a lovely traditional scottish(?) song called Huree, Huroo. The lyrics are:

CHORUS:
Huree, Huroo, my bonnie wee lass,
Huree, Huroo, my fair one
And will you come away, my love, to be my own
My rare one?

Smiling the land, smiling the sea,
Sweet was the smell of the heather,
Would we were yonder, just you and me
The two of us together

CHORUS

All the day long, down by the peat,
Then by the shore in the gloaming,
Tripping it lightly with dancing feet,
And we together roaming.

CHORUS
And will ye come away, my love,
To be my own, my rare one?

This song has been recorded actually accapella, by a celtic harpist/singer by the name of Roger Helfrick. He has a beautiful voice and gets quite a bit of airplay on CKUA radio -awesome site for folk!! They have a website in real audio. Contact Andy Donelly at CKUA, and he will put you in touch with Roger if you would like a CD.

See also the old (also mis-spelled) thread on the same subject revived yesterday by George Seto, and to which I posted the correct English lyric (the DT entry contains some unnecessary changes to Hugh Roberton's text, which I think is still in copyright, and does not credit its author, or the composer of the tune.

Tyree Love Song

George has also posted an unattributed Gaelic text.
