Tionndaidh am Bat

Back to song list

Tionndaidh am Bat means ‘Turn the Boat’.

English Translation:
Turn the boat and return with me
And I’ll go happily toward my girl
Move quickly that I may get her promise
Turn the boat and return with me
In spite of where I’ve travelled southward and northward
I’d never wish to leave my love’s village
That is where she passes each day
And her footprints mark where she climbed the heights
Missing you, missing you as I sail the ocean
  Neither morning nor night are you far from my mind
Seeing you in waking seeing you in sleep
Oh the color of your cheek has pierced me through, my love
And if you’ll follow me and I get your hand
We’ll make our way to the altar without delay
There we’ll tie the binding knot, my love
And we’ll give our marriage vows which will stand forever
Turn the boat and return with me
And I’ll go happily toward my girl
Move quickly that I may get her promise

Turn the boat and return with me
