Hey folks (or should I say, Folkies?)
I've been singing Suo Gan (or Huna Blentyn) for some time, and it occured to me that I maybe should learn to accompany myself with it... Does anyone have the chords for this tune?

Thanks a bunch in advance!

Beccy

We've had a number of threads on this song over the years. Goes back to thread #1144.

Unfortunately, there was no chords in any of them.

Google mentions quite a number of books, usually harp or guitar, with chords for those instruments. However, the chords themselves are not there.

You might have a look at Google, and then check your local music store to see if any of them have the books. They seem to be inexpensive. Sorry couldn't find anything else.

LULLABY (SUO GAN)

[D]Sleep, my baby, [A7]on my bosom,
[D]Warm and cosy [A7]will it [D]prove;
Round thee mother's [A7]arms are folding,
[D]In her heart a [A7]mother's [D]love.
There shall no one [G]come to [D]harm thee,
Naught shall ever [G]break thy [A7]rest;
[D]Sleep my darling [A7]babe in quiet,
[D]Sleep on mother's [A7]gentle [D]breast.

Try these for a little 'mood', Beccy...

[D] Sleep, my [F#m] baby, [Em] on my [A7] bosom,
[D] Warm and [F#m] cosy [Em] will [A7] it [D] prove;
[D] Round thee [F#m] mother's [Em] arms are [A7] folding,
[D] In her [F#m] heart a [Em] moth-[A7]er's [D] love.
[F#m] There shall no one [G] come to [F#m] harm thee,
[D] Naught shall [F#m] ever [G] break thy [A7] rest;
[D] Sleep my [F#m] darling [Em] babe in [A7] quiet,
[D] Sleep on [F#m] mother's [Em] gent-[A7]le [D] breast.

Nice attempt at the chords- but this should never be sung in English.

Listen to the version that Mormon Tabernacle Choir did. Then you might think again about singing it in English. Extremely beautiful.

It seems that they use different words (although I can't access YouTube in work)

Come to me, O child beloved,
Eyes of wonder softly close,
Tiny hand release my finger,
Weary head receive repose.
Sleep, and love arises in me,
Waking hope till joy o'erflows.
Lead me, little child so tender,
To the place I long to go.

Rest in me, O child beloved,
May thy sweet dreams never cease:
Till I hear around us winging
Seraphs singing heavenly peace.
Then I'll walk through night and shadow
By the light that shines in thee,
Flowing as a stream forever
To the blessed, fruitful Tree.
Singing heavenly peace forever.
Sleep, sleep, sleep, sleep.

There are problems when songs in minority languages get translated, I fear - more so than when songs in majority languages are translated. This leads to further erosion of cultural and linguistic identities. Minority languages need to be heard more, not less. This is especially true in the home countries of those languages. More specifically as in this instance, Welsh needs all the help it can get!

Artistically, it's also pretty much impossible to capture the true spirit, meanings and subtleties of many songs in another language, in my experience. So much is lost. Some of the Victorian translations of Welsh songs are awful, for example. I'd prefer the song to be sung in the original language and a literal, prose translation given if necessary.

Better, then, perhaps, to do as seems to have been done by the Mormon Tabernacle Choir above, and write new words which aren't an attempt at a close translation (although they keep to the theme)
