Come, my love [ Siuil A Run (Walk My Love) ]

English translation

Come, my love

Come, come, come, O love,
Quickly come to me, softly move;
Come to the door, and away we'll flee
And safe for aye may my darling be!
 
I wish I was on yonder hill
'Tis there I'd sit and cry my fill,
And every tear would turn a mill
 
I'll sell my rod, I'll sell my reel
I'll sell my only spinning wheel
To buy my love a sword of steel
 
Come, come, come, O love,
Quickly come to me, softly move;
Come to the door, and away we'll flee
And safe for aye may my darling be!
 
I'll dye my petticoats, I'll dye them red
And 'round the world I'll beg my bread
Until my parents shall wish me dead
 
Come, come, come, O love,
Quickly come to me, softly move;
Come to the door, and away we'll flee
And safe for aye may my darling be!
 
Come, come, come, O love,
Quickly come to me, softly move;
Come to the door, and away we'll flee
 
Come, come, come, O love,
Quickly come to me, softly move;
Come to the door, and away we'll flee
And safe for aye may my darling be!

This song is so beautiful. I just love it. I first heard Clannad sing it. Their version includes these additional words:

But now my love has gone to france,
To try his fortune to advance;
If he e'er come back, 'tis but a chance,
Iss guh day thoo avorneen slawn.

Thanks for translating. :-)
