W:I wish I was on yonder hill
W:'Tis there I'd sit and cry my fill
W:And every tear would turn a mill
W:Is go dté tú mo mhúirnín slán
W:
W:Chorus:
W:Siúil, siúil, siúil a rún
W:Siúil go sochair agus siúil go ciúin
W:Siúil go doras agus éalaigh liom
W:Is go dté tú mo mhúirnín slán
W:
W:Chorus
W:
W:I'll sell my rock, I'll sell my reel
W:I'll sell my only spinning wheel
W:To buy my love a sword of steel
W:Is go dté tú mo mhúirnín slán
W:
W:Chorus
W:
W:I'll dye my petticoats, I'll dye them red
W:And around the world I'll beg for bread
W:Until my parents they do wish me dead
W:Is go dté tú mo mhúirnín slán
W:
W:Chorus
W:
W:I wish, I wish, I wish in vain
W:I wish I had my heart again
W:And vainly think I'd not complain
W:Is go dté tú mo mhúirnín slán
W:
W:Chorus
W:
W:But now my love has gone to France
W:To seek his fortune to advance
W:If he returns, 'tis but a chance
W:Is go dté tú mo mhúirnín slán
W:
W:Chorus
W:
W:Translation of chorus:
W:Go, go, go, my love
W:Go quietly and go softly
W:Go to the door and flee with me
W:And may you go safely, my dear
