Hi all.

I have listened to this song and although the Irish seems to be very easy there are a few times I simply don't know what he is singing.

If anyone could take the time to listen and quickly write down the lyrics.There aren't that many and most are simple lines;

I found it on spotify and can't seem to find it elsewhere on line.
Here is the spotify link

https://open.spotify.com/search/results ... %20gaeilge

As a way of paying it forward I will put up the lyrics of Old Lang Syne as gaeilge in another thread.
Or will take requests for Irish lyrics of well know songs.

Deal?

to give you an idea this is what I pick out from the first verse. I know it;s mostly incorrect but gives you an idea of where I am finding difficulty. My level of Irish is just not up to it

nil fhios agam an bhfeiceann tu
an samh (u?), ata orm
's inmi og
le tamall anois
liom fein inniu
go ?????? mi liom
eigin sin scealta 's ceol liom

Damn. It works for me which means you'd have to be logged in to hear it :(
If you have spotify account just log in. I guess it would be too much to ask you to register just to help me out,but it is free :)

It’s the same song as Dougie McLean’s Caledonia (in English)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wP8A9rtg0iI

So, just translate its English lyrics to Irish and you should result in the lyrics of Justin McGurk’s version.
https://www.dougiemaclean.com/index.php/c/29-caledonia

(McGurk’s pronunciation isn’t very clear and not very good, so I can’t help.)

BTW: Here’s a Scottish Gaelic version by Àdhamh Ó Broin:
