I would I were on yonder hill It's there i'd sit and cry my fill
And every tear would turn a mill
Is go dte tu mo mhuirnin slan

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 dte tu mo mhuirnin slan


REFRAIN:
Siuil, siuil. siuil, a ruin
Siuil go sochair agus siuil go ciuin
Siuil go doras ealaigh liom
Is go dte tu mo mhuirin slan


I'll dye my petticoats, I'll dye them red
And it's round the world I'' beg for bread
Until my parents would wish me dead
Is go dte tu mo mhuirin slan

I wish, I wish, I wish in vain
I wish I had my heart again
And vainly thnk i'd not complain
Is go dte tu mo mhuirin slan

And now my love hsa gone to France
to try his fortune to advance
If he e'er comes bcak 'tis but a chance
Is go dte tu mo mhuirin slan


REFRAIN
