LYRICS

Haste to the Wedding/Rural Felicity

Come haste to the wedding ye friends and ye neighbours

The lovers their bliss can no longer delay.

Forget all your sorrows your cares and your labors,

And let every heart beat with rapture today.

 

Come, come one and all, attend to my call,

And revel in pleasures that never can cloy.

Come see rural felicity,

Which love and innocence ever enjoy.

 

Let Envy, Let Pride, Let Hate & Ambition,

Still Crowd to, & beat at the breast of the Great,

To Such Wretched Passions we Give no admission,

But Leave them alone to the wise ones of State.

 

We Boast of No wealth, but Contentment & Health,

In mirth & in Friendship, our moments employ

Come see rural felicity,

Which love and innocence ever enjoy.

 

With Reason we taste of Each Heart Stirring pleasure,

With Reason we Drink of the full flowing Bowl,

Are Jocund & Gay, But 'tis all within measure,

For fatal excess will enslave the free Soul,

 

Then Come at our bidding to this Happy wedding,

No Care Shall obtrude here, our Bliss to annoy,

Come see rural felicity,

Which love and innocence ever enjoy.

An Eriskay Love Lilt

 

Nana Mouskouri

Bheir mi oh a ro van oh;bheir mi oh a ro van e.

Bheir mi oh a ro ho! Sad am I without thee.

When I'm lonely dear white heart;Black the night or wild the sea,

By love's light my foot finds the old path way to thee.

Bheir mi oh a ro van oh;bheir mi oh a ro van e.

Bheir mi oh a ro ho! Sad am I without thee.

Thou art music of my heart;Harp of joy oh cush ma cree

Moon of guidance by night;light the pathway to thee.

Bheir mi oh a ro van oh;bheir mi oh a ro van e.

Bheir mi oh a ro ho! Sad am I without thee.

Black Is the Color performed by Jesse Linder from the album Crescent Moon

www.facebook.com/pg/JesseLinder.Bard

"Author: adapted by John Jacob Niles

Copyright: G. Schinner Music Inc.

Black is the color

of my true love's hair

her lips are like

some roses fair

she's the sweetest smile

and the gentlest hands

and I love the ground

where on she stands

 

I love my love

and well she knows

I love the ground

where on she goes

if she on earth no more I'll see

My life will quickly fade away

 

I'll go to the Clyde

and I'll mourne and weep

for satisfied

I'll never be

I'll write her a letter

just a few short lines

and suffer death a 1000 times

 

Winter's past and the leaves are green

the time has passed that we have seen

but still I hope the time will come

when she and I will be as one

 

(Not the same version as Christy Moore sings)

 

The Christy Moore Version

Black is the Colour

 

Black is the color

of my true love's hair

her lips are like

some roses fair

she's the sweetest smile

and the gentlest hands

and I love the ground

where on she stands

 

I love my love

and well she knows

I love the ground

where on she goes

I wish the day

It soon would come

When she and I

Could be as one

 

I go to the Clyde

And I mourne and weep

For satisfied I ne'er can be

I write her a letter

just a few short lines

and suffer death

a thousand times"

 

Bogie's Bonnie Belle performed by Coeur De Lion from the album Coeur De Lion

www.mpetersco.com/CDL/

"Bogie's Bonnie Belle

As I came down to Huntly town, a-searching for a fee

I met with Bogie o' Cairnie and with him I did agree.

To work his two best horses, barrow, cart or plow

Or any kind of good farmwork he knew well that I could do.

 

He had a lovely daughter, and her name was Isabel,

She was the lily of the valley and the primrose of the dell.

And when she'd go out walking she'd take me for her guide;

Down by the banks of Cairnie we watched those small fish glide.

 

And when three short months had gone and passed, this lassie lost her bloom.

And the red fell from her rosy cheeks, and her eyes began to swoon.

And when nine long months had gone and passed, she bore to me a son,

And swiftly I was sent for to see what could be done.

 

I said that I would marry her, but och, that would not dee,

Saying, “You're no match for Isabelle, and she's no match for thee.”

So I took my own son all in my arms, may he bring to me much joy,

And may he mean as much to me as the girl that I adore.

 

And now she's married to a tinker lad and he comes from Huntly town,

Mending pots and pans and paraffin lamps and he scours the country 'round.

Maybe she's got have a better match, old Bogie can't tell,

Fare ye well, you lads o' Huntly side and Bogie's Bonnie Belle."

Toast to Love and Marriage performed by Empty Hats from the album Greatest Hats

www.emptyhats.com

"Toast to Love and Marrage

 

When I was just a lad, me mum said ""Darlin' Paddy

So's you won't be sad someday you'll want to marry

It's time we had this chat on how to find a wife for you

Old, young, skinny, or fat, the best to make a life for you

 

Just seek a girl with charms, like Venus but with arms

To keep your bed all warm and happily married will you be

It's how I caught your dad, me beauty drove him mad

And now you see he's had these many years of marital bliss and harmony.""

 

Raise your glasses high and toast to love and marriage

We'll never understand 'til they slide our coffins from the carriage

Whack-fe-lol-da-rah

 

But then I turned fourteen, me pa said, ""Darlin' Paddy

I'll teach you the routine to find the girl to marry

You'll have the benefit of all me experience

In a relationship of lasting joy and permanence

 

Just marry an ugly girl, the oyster not the pearl

The ugliest in the world, 'cause a bonny lass could leave ya

I'm telling you now, me son, it's the reason I married your mum

So do as I have done, if an ugly girl, she leaves you

You'll find you don't really mind.""

 

Raise your glasses high and toast to love and marriage

We'll never understand 'til they slide our coffins from the carriage

Whack-fe-lol-da-rah

 

So's I've grown up a bit confused, love was such a bother

Courted pretty girls, and some that looked like me mother

So Mom and dear old Dad, the words to me you've spoken

I feel that I've been had, me heart is always broken

 

When I thought Id found true love, and I'm thanking God above

Push it came to shove and I'm back out on me bum again

I'm telling you lads it's true, no longer will I woo

Me heart is black and blue, I'll leave this game of love to you

I'm going off to become a priest!

 

Raise your glasses high and toast to love and marriage

We'll never understand 'til they slide our coffins from the carriage

Raise your glasses high and toast to love and marriage

We'll never understand 'til they slide our coffins from the carriage

Whack-fe-lol-da-rah"

 

Tartan Is The Color Of My True Love's Hair performed by Barleyjuice from the album Six Yanks

www.barleyjuice.com

"Tartan is the Colour Of My True Love's Hair

(Mark Mulholland / IMRO; Kyf Brewer / Brewerds&Music / ASCAP)

 

Well when I was just a young lad, my life about to start

There was ever only one girl had a place inside my heart

We walked the glen, we climbed the Ben, the forest was our bed,

And many a morn I'd wake to find me kilt across her head

 

And I been up and I been down and I been here and I been there

Never saw a bonny lassie quite as comely or as fair

You can talk of pretty maidens and I don't bloody care

Cause tartan is the colour of my true love's hair

 

We walked the bonnie highlands, no matter what the weather

And we'd shag each other senseless in the bonnie purple heather

ŒTil one day we were frolicking and as my true love laughed,

She fell into the workings of an old disused mineshaft

 

And I been up and I been down and I been here and I been there

Never saw a bonny lassie quite as comely or as fair

You can talk of pretty maidens and I don't bloody care

Cause tartan is the colour of my true love's hair

 

Well I never have recovered from that sad, sad, sorry day

So I left my native land for the shores of Amerikay

And many a man has made remark about me ancient dress

But I wear it in remembrance of the girl it e'er first kissed

 

And I been up and I been down and I been here and I been there

Never saw a bonny lassie quite as comely or as fair

You can talk of pretty maidens and I don't bloody care

Cause tartan is the colour of my true love's hair"

 

Mary Mack performed by Queen Ann's Lace from the album Unlaced

www.QALace.com

"Mary Mack

 

There's a little girl and her name is Mary Mack

Make no mistake, she's the girl I'm gonna track

There's a lot of other fellas who would get up on her track

But I'm thinking that they'll have to get up early

 

CHORUS

Mary Mack's father's makin' Mary Mack marry me

My father's makin' me marry Mary Mack

And I'm goin' to marry Mary for my Mary

to take care of me

Well all be making merry when I marry Mary Mack

 

There a little lass and she has a lot of brass

has a lot of gas and her father thinks I'm gas

And I'd be a silly ass for to let the matter pass

Her father thinks she suits me fairly CHORUS

 

Mary and her mother do an awful lot together

In fact you hardly ever see the one without the other

Lot of people wonder whether if its Mary or her mother

Or both of them together that I'm courting CHORUS

 

Now the weddin's on Wednesday and everything's arranged

Soon her name wil change to mine, unless her mind is changed

And makin' the arrangements is makin' me deranged

marriage is an awful undertaking CHORUS

 

It's sure to be a grand affair and grander than a fair

There's gonna be a coach and pair for every pair that's there

We'll dine upon the finest fare, I'm sure to get my share

If I don't I'll be very much mistaken CHORUS"

 

Lover's Wreck performed by Cheeks and Phoenix from the album Any Requests

www.cheeksandphoenix.com

"""Lover's_Wreck

 

A hundred days at sea, A retch away from misery

Rummies and rats and tarry jacks my only family (break)

The island of salvation Is still a scream a way

As the lungs of the night Blow out the light my heart kneels Down to pray

 

(strait into chorus)

Lord why did you take her She meant so much to me

Now I’m a wretched soul on a privateer Drowning out at sea

I’m killing and I’m drinking My blue heart to black

But I swear oh lord I’ll never sin again If you bring her back

 

Gypsy was a siren, Dripping with desire

Her moonless hair and skin so fair as warm as frozen fire

She had the loyalty of a cat, behind those pale green eyes

Through her cherry lips, the devil slipped, a thousand lies

A clan of rogues and vagabonds, occupied her head

That thieving band took her pale white hand and stole her from my bed

And like a ghost ship in the night, She drifted out once more

To land upon the sand of another lover’s shore

 

Lord why did you take her She meant so much to me

Now I’m a wretched soul on a privateer Drowning out at sea

I’m killing and I’m drinking My blue heart to black

But I swear oh lord I’ll never sin again If you bring her back

 

In my sleeping mind she sings a sad and lonely lullaby

When I wake there’s just the ache it will haunt me till I die

When those winds of vanity no longer blow her west

I pray they’ll guide her home (across the foam) and put my heart to rest

Press gang filled this Man-o-War To make the black mouthed cannon roar

Now all my trade is ball and blade, and blood forever more

And the sting of salt and spray, the ocean’s howl and squall

A stumbling wreck, I roam the deck, at the devil’s beck and call

At the devil’s beck and call

 

Lord why did you take her She meant so much to me

Now I’m a wretched soul on a privateer Drowning out at sea

I’m killing and I’m drinking My blue heart to black

But I swear oh lord I’ll never sin again If you bring her back

I swear oh lord I’ll never sin again If you bring her back"""

 

I Still Remember performed by Blackmore's Night from the album Fires At Midnight

www.blackmoresnight.com

"I thought of you the other day

How worlds of change led us astray

Colors seem to fade to gray

In the wake of yesterday

You looked into my eyes

You had me hypnotized and

I can still remember you

I had a dream of you and I

A thousand stars lit up the sky

I touched your hand and you were gone

But memories of you live on

You looked into my eyes

You had me hypnotized and

I can still remember you

Those moments spent together

Promising forever and

I can still remember you

Do you ever think of me

And get lost in the memory

When you do, I hope you smile

And hold that memory a while

You looked into my eyes

You had me hypnotized and

I can still remember you

Those moments spent together

Promising forever and

I can still remember you

Still remember you

Still remember you

Still remember you

Still remember you

Still remember you

Still remember you

Still remember you

Still remember you

Still remember you

Still remember you"

Hail to the mountains with summits of blue,

To the glens with their meadows of sunshine and dew.

To the women and men ever constant and true,

Ever ready to welcome one home.

 

Oh ro soon shall I see them;

Oh he ro see them oh see them.

Oh ro soon shall I see them the

Mist covered mountains of home.

 

There shall I gaze on the mountains again,

On the fields and the woods and the burns and the glens,

Away 'mong the corries beyond human ken

In the haunts of the deer I will roam

 

Oh ro soon shall I see them;

Oh he ro see them oh see them.

Oh ro soon shall I see them the

Mist covered mountains of home.

There shall I visit the place of my birth

And they'll give me a welcome the warmest on earth

All so loving and kind full of music and mirth,

In the sweet sounding language of home.

Married to a Mermaid performed by Dregs from the album Do It Like You're Drunk

www.the-dregs.net

"Married_to_a_Mermaid

 

There was a gay young farmer,

Who liv'd on Salisbury plain;

He lov'd a rich Knight's daughter dear!

And she lov'd him again.

The Knight he was distressed,

That they should sweethearts be.

So he had the farmer soon pressed,

And sent him off to sea.

Singing Rule Britannia,

Britannia rules the waves

Britons never, never, never shall be slaves...

'Twas on the deep Atlantic,

Midst Equinoctial gales;

This young farmer fell overboard

Among the sharks and whales;

He disappeared so quickly,

So headlong down went he,

That he went out of sight

Like a streak of light

To the bottom of the deep blue sea.

Singing Rule Britannia,

Britannia rules the waves

Britons never, never, never shall be slaves...

We lowered a boat to find him,

We thought to see his corse,

When up to the top he came with a bang,

And sang in a voice so hoarse,

'My comrades and my messmates,

Oh, do not weep for me,

For I'm married to a mermaid,

Atthe bottom of the deep blue sea.'

Singing Rule Britannia,

Britannia rules the waves

Britons never, never, never shall be slaves...

He said that as he went down,

Great fishes he did see;

They seemed to think as he did wink,

That he was rather free.

But down he went so quickly,

Saying, ""Tis all up with me, '

When he met a lovely mermaid

Atthe bottom of the deep blue sea.

Singing Rule Britannia,

Britannia rules the waves

Britons never, never, never shall be slaves...

She came at once unto him,

And gave him her white hand,

Saying, 'I have waited long, my dear,

To welcome you to land.

Go to your ship and tell them,

You'll leave them all for me;

For you're married to a mermaid

At the bottom of the deep blue sea.'

Singing Rule Britannia,

Britannia rules the waves

Britons never, never, never shall be slaves...

The wind was fair, the sails set,

The ship was running free;

When we all went to the captain bold,

And told what we did see.

He went unto the ship's side,

And loudly bellowed he,

'Be happy as you can, my man,

At the bottom of the deep blue sea.'

Singing Rule Britannia,

Britannia rules the waves

Britons never, never, never shall be slaves..."
