Lyrics for:
Siúil a Rún

Sheet Music (and more information about this song)

I wish I was on yonder hill
'Tis there I'd sit and cry my fill
And every tear would turn a mill
Is go dté tú mo mhúirnín slán

Chorus:
Siúil, siúil, siúil a rún
Siúil go sochair agus siúil go ciúin
Siúil go doras agus éalaigh liom
Is go dté tú mo mhúirnín slán

Chorus

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

Chorus

I'll dye my petticoats, I'll dye them red
And around the world I'll beg for bread
Until my parents they do wish me dead
Is go dté tú mo mhúirnín slán

Chorus

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

Chorus

But now my love has gone to France
To seek his fortune to advance
If he returns, 'tis but a chance
Is go dté tú mo mhúirnín slán

Chorus

Translation of chorus:
Go, go, go, my love
Go quietly and go softly
Go to the door and flee with me
And may you go safely, my dear
