a lullaby



Dun do shuil a run mo chroi
A chuid den tsaol is a ghra liom
Dun do Shuil a run mo chroi
Is gheobhair feirin amarch
Beidh do dhear ag tiocht
Gan mhoill on g'cnoc
Agus cearca fraoch ina lamh leis
O codhladh go cuin a run mo run
Agus gheobhair feirin amarach
Dun do shuil a run mo chroi
Dun do shuil a run mo chroi
Is gheobhair feirin amarach
To an ghaoth ag tiocht go firinneach
Agus duilluir glas ar phratai
Ta an Samhradh ag triall le grian is teas
Is gheobhaimid iasc amarach
Dun do shuil a run mo chroi
A dhuid den tsaol is a ghra liom
Dun do shuil a run mo chroi
Is gheobhair feirin amarach


Close your eyes, O love of my heart
My everything and my love
Close your eyes, O love of my heart
And you'll get a reward tomorrow.

Beidh do dhear ag tiocht
gan mhoill on g'cnoc
Agus cearca fraoch ina lamh leis
O codhladh go cuin a run mo run
Agus gheobhair feirin amarach

Your brother will be soon coming from the hills
With grouse in his hands
O sleep peacefully my darling of darlings
And you'll get a reward tomorrow.

Dun do shuil a run mo chroi
Dun do shuil a run mo chroi
Agus gheobhair feirin amarach

Close your eyes, O love of my heart
Close your eyes, O love of my heart
And you'll get a reward tomorrow

to an ghaoth ag tiocht go firinneach
Agus duilluir glas ar phratai
Ta an Samhradh ag triall le grian is teas
Is gheobhaimid iasc amarach

The wind is truly coming
And green leaves on the potatoes
The summer is going with sun and heat
And we'll get a fish tomorrow.

Dun do shuil a run mo chroi
A dhuid den tsaol is a ghra liom
Dun do shuil a run mo chroi
Is gheobhair feirin amarach

Close your eyes, O love of my heart
My everything and my love
Close your eyes, O love of my heart
And you'll get a reward tomorrow.

Getting too close to St Patrick's Day not to have a few days of Irish music. Starting oout, of course, with the fellows who made it popular in the 50s and 60s, letting the styles of the songs free to be woven into all sorts of things. I can remember living in one town where there was a stream nearby. And at night I would walk the road along the stream and look at the stars and sing this song over and over again.

The sweaters btw, were made by Mrs Clancy for the lads because it was said the weather could be terrible fierce in America. And they became a trademark not just for the Clancy Brothers and Tommy Makem, but for a whole generation of Irish singers. Yes, I did have one..no, there are no photos.
