Tune of the Day: North Americay

Traditional Irish song

This traditional song was brought to worldwide popularity by the Irish band The Chieftains on their live album An Irish Evening. In their marvelous recording the tune is sung by Kevin Conneff without any instrumental accompaniment at all, which creates an almost magical atmosphere.

Ye lovers all both great and small, who dwell in Ireland
Oh I pray you pay attention, whilst I my pen command
It was my father's anger that drove my love away
But I still have hopes we'll meet again in North Americay

This love song is also known as “Ye Lovers All” from the first line.
