Here comes the lyric version that I have.
Chorus and the first two verses are identical (except for the order)
with chorus and verses on the page given by Áine,
only the 3rd verse is different.
Sorry, I can't help with the tune...
HTH,
MudGuard

BEAN PHAIDIN

Chorus

'Sé an trua ghéar nach mise, nach mise
'Sé an trua ghéar nach mise bean Pháidín
'Sé an trua ghéar nach mise, nach mise
'S an bhean atá aige bheith caillte
'Gus rachainn go Gaillimh, go Gaillimh
'Gus rachainn go Gaillimh le Páidín
Ó rachainn go Gaillimh, go Gaillimh
Is thiocfainn abhaile sa mbád leis

'S chuaigh mise siar chun an Chlocháin
Is thart timpeall le Béal Átha na Báighe
'Gus bhreathnaigh mé isteach trí na fuinneoga
A' féachaint an bhfeicfinn bean Pháidín

'S go mbristear do chosa do chosa
Go mbristear do chosa, a bhean Pháidín
'S go mbristear do chosa do chosa
Go mbristear do chosa is do chnámha

There's a version to which I am rather partial on a CD called something like World Library of ... Ancient Folk Music or some such (sorry don't have it with me) and also don't have the singer's name but i think the whole lot was recorded back in the 50's. Anyhow, yer man is from Connemara and has a lovely voice like a set of uileann pipes.

I shall visit the html practice area to find out how to put the fada on vowels & post the lyrics I have for Bean Phaidin.

Donal Lunny sang Bean Phaidin on the Planxty album The Well Below the Valley (not Moynihan). This also used on the compilation of the first three albums, The Planxty Collection. This is Lunny's only recorded vocal with Planxty.

Aha! Had always thought it was a badly mixed Andy irvine vocal, but now I know better.
