Sad Am I, And Sorrow Laden

This is an old Gaelic tune from The Celtic Lyre by Henry Whyte. Whyte was a collector of Gaelic folktunes around the end of the 19th century.. It is from the Hebrides. The Celtic Lyre indicates the tune was written by a "young gael on leaving home."


Sad am I and sorrow laden,

for the maid I love so well,

I adore thee, dearest maiden,

but my thoughts I dare not tell.

Ben of peaks the clouds that sever,

oft thy steeps have wearied me,

Must I leave thy shade for ever?

Then farewell, farewell to thee.
