DT Lyrics:

Subject: Lyr Req: Siobhan Ni Dhuibhir (Suzy McGuire)
From: Maffet

I am interested in such a lovely song. I know it from many sides ... from Clannad (Siobhan Ni Dhuibhir), Alan Stivel (as Suzy McGuire) from Patrick Ball (as Susie McGuire) and from Norland Wind as Siabhan Ni Dhuibhir. I hope that ... it was all names, this song can have :-)
Tune is very easy and even I am not very handy of catching tune by ear, I got it during few minutes, so I am able to play it as simple slowly air.
But it is also great song to sing. One problem is that it has only irish lyrics. Even I tried hard, I nearly break my tongue. I can sing it as I catch it by ear and dont care, because in my country only few knows irish languge ... but I dont want to sing it that way. I am too true, to try this. Dont care to sing in spanish, french or even elvish ... but irish is for me too difficult. Does exist some english version?
I found that this song is very rare to find on internet, even it is well known and even if you dont know name, you surely heard it somewhere.

Thread Name: Lyr Req: Kimiad, by Alan Stivell


Think these are words for Susie McGuire
I have a load more Stivell lyrics in a word doc if you would like to email me for them.
slan leat


D'éirigh mé ar maidin a tharraint chun aonaigh mhóir
a dhíol is a cheannacht mar a dhéanadh mo dhaoine romham.
Bhuail tart ar an bhealach mé is shuigh mise síos a dh'ól
is le Siúbhán Ní Dhuibhir gur ól mise luach na mbróg.

A Shiúbháin Ní Dhuibhir, an miste leat mé bheith i tinn?
Mo bhrón is mo mhilleadh más miste liom tú bheith i gcill.
Bróinte is muilte bheith 'scileadh ar chúl do chinn
ach cead a bheith in Iorras go dtara síol Éabha chun cinn.

A Shiúbháin Ní Dhuibhir, is tú bun agus barr mo shcéil.
Ar mhná na cruinne go dtug sise an báire léi
le gile le finne le maise is le dhá dtrian scéimh
is nach mise an trua Mhuire bheith ag scaradh amárach léi.

Thiar in Iorras tá searc agus grá mo chléibh,
planta an leinbh a d'eitigh mo phosadh inné.
Beir scéala uaim chuici má thug mise póg dá béal
go dtabharfainn dí tuille dá gcuirfeadh sí bólacht léi.

Beir scéala uaim chuige go dearfa nach bpósaim é
ó chuala mise gur chuir sé le bólacht mé.
Nuair nach bhfuil agamsa maoin nó mórán spré,
bíodh a rogha bean aige is beidh mise ar mo chomhairle féin.

Thank you Philippa :-)

Another versions of name :-) ... but I am lucky as child, I found clear sheet music to that song, so I discovered some mistake I did writing music by ear :-) .... also many lyrics there and some easy translations :-)

Seo duit, as Béarla (Here ya go, in English):


I set out one morning for market
Buying and selling as my people did before me
I got thirsty on the way and sat down to drink
And with Susan O'Dwyer I drank the price of the boots

Susan O'Dwyer do you care if I'm ill?
Sorrow and ruin be upon me if I wish you to be in a graveyard
My grief and troubles rain down on you
But you can stay in Irras until the tribe of Eve comes to the fore

Susan O'Dwyer, you're the beginning and the end of my story
From the women of the world she took the prize
With brightness and fairness, goodness and almost perfect beauty
And I'm the sad case to leaving her tomorrow

My true love is over in Irras
The young sweet thing that refused to marry me yesterday
Tell her from me if I give her a kiss
That I would give her more if they'd send me a dowry with her

"Tell him from me for certain I won't marry him
For I heard that he wanted me with a dowry
Since I don't have wealth or much of a fortune
Let him have whoever he wishes and I'll be about my own business"

I'm always on the lookout for good tunes. I found this one at JC's Tunefinder, only to realize I already know it.

But if anybody else is looking, go to JC's. Unless it's in the DT. I didn't check.

I moved your request over here - guess that should take care of it. Also note the thread linked above.
