Clannad singing Siuil a Run (Walk my love)

Lyrics:

English Translation:


I wish I was on yonder hill
'Tis there I'd sit and cry my fill
Until every tear would turn a mill

Is go dté tú mo mhúirnín slán And may you go safely, my darling


Chorus (after each verse):
Siúil, siúil, siúil a rún Go, go, go, my love
Siúil go sochair agus siúil go ciúin Go quietly and go peacefully
Siúil go doras agus éalaigh liom Go to the door and fly with me
Is go dté tú mo mhúirnín slán And may you go safely, my darling


I'll sell my rock, I'll sell my reel
I'll sell my only spinning wheel
To buy my love a sword of steel

Is go dté tú mo mhúirnín slán And may you go safely, my darling


I'll dye my petticoats, I'll dye them red
And 'round the world I'll beg my bread
Until my parents shall wish me dead

Is go dté tú mo mhúirnín slán And may you go safely, my darling


I wish, I wish, I wish in vain
I wish I had my heart again
And vainly think I'd not complain

Is go dté tú mo mhúirnín slán And may you go safely, my darling


But now my love has gone to France
To try his fortune to advance
If he e'er comes back, 'tis but a chance

Is go dté tú mo mhúirnín slán
