Bheir Mé Ó
(My Darling)

[Irish-Gaelic]

[Rough Phonetic]

[curfa]
Bheir mé óró, bhean ó
Bheir mé óró, ó bhean í
Bheir mé óró ó hó
S mé tá brónach s tú i mdhith

[curfa]

S Iomaí oíche fliuch is fuar
Thug mé cuairt is mé liom féin
Nó go ráinig mé san áit
Mar a raibh grá geal mo chroí

[curfa]


I mo cláirseach ní raibh ceol
I mo mheoraibh ní raibh brí
Nó gur luaigh tú do rún
S fuair mé eolas ar mo dhán

[curfa]

[chorus]

1] My darling-my dear
My darling --my dear
My darling -oh
And I'm sorrowful and wanting

2] And many wet, cold nights
Have I spent by myself
Or made for the place
Of my dearest love of my heart.

3] In my harp there was no music
In my thoughts there was no meaning
Nor a purpose without you
And I've found inspiration for my verse.
