Curfa:

Bheir mé óró, bhean ó
Bheir mé óró, bhean í
Bheir mé óró hó
`S mé tá brónach `s tú i m'dhith

[curfa arís]

`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:

I've gone away, oh beautiful woman
I've gone away, oh dear one
I've gone away
I'm sad and missing you.

[Chorus again:]

Many's the cold and wet night
I went out traveling on my own
Until I reached the place
Where the love of my heart lived.

[Chorus]

There was no music in my harp
There was no strength in my fingers
Until you told me of your love
And I found my poem.

[Chorus]
