Shule Aroon 1 I wish I were on yonder hill 'Tis there I'd sit and cry my fill, And ev'ry tear would turn a mill, Iss guh day thoo a voorneen slawn. cho: Shule, shule, shule aroon Shule go succir agus, shule go kewn; Shule go dheen durrus oggus aylig lume, Iss guh day thoo avorneen slawn. * I'll sell my rod, I'll sell my reel I'll sell my only spinning wheel To by my love a sword of steel Iss guh day thoo a voorneen slawn. I'll dye my petticoats, I'll dye them red And through the streets I'll beg my bread, Until my parents shall wish me dead Iss guh day thoo a voorneen slawn. I wish, I wish, I wish in vain I wish I had my heart again, And vainly think I'd not complain Iss guh day thoo a voorneen slawn. 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 a voorneen slawn. *Come, come, come O love, Quickly come to me, softly move, Come to the door and away we'll flee, And safe forever may my darling be. see also I'll Sell My Hat, I'll Sell My Coat RG
