If so where and who, and does anyone know of a good website I can get copyright info about folk songs on it?

Thanks

the words are here: A STOR MO CHROI in the database we have had a few threads about copyright, (if you type "copyright" into the filter box and set the age for maybe one year... you should find them)

I don't know the answer regarding this song... but we haven't been chased to remove it from the forum yet... so that's a good sign....

I have it on a CD called "Tears of Stone" with the Chieftans and it is sung by Bonny Raitt on Dobro with Hutch Hutchinson on bass. It is arranged by Paddy Maloney.

It is a very beautiful song, whatever it's pedigree. Paddy Maloney calls it 'traditional'.

The song is associated with the singing of Rita & Sarah Keane from Couty Galway (Aunts of Dolores & Sean Keane) and also (my favourite version with Mick Flynn from Miltown Malbay and his wife Jane. Recorded on his CD "A singers dozen" released a couple of years back.

A beautiful recent version is Iarla Ó Líonáird's from the 'Aislingí Ceol/Music of Dreams'
album he shares with Tony MacMahon et al. There's also a version on a sean nós compilation from Cló Iar-Chonnachta - 'Grand Airs of Connemara' (I think) where I can't quite remember who does it
possibly Seán ac'Donncha. Very fine song alright.

The version I know is slightly different. Listen, by the way, to the lovely singing of The Voice Squad, for a nice version of this.

I particularly like the use of the old "throng and list" cliche, which is almost Arthurian.

Here's the version I know:

A STOR MO CHROI

A stor mo chroi, when you're far away
From the home you'll soon be leaving,
There's many a time by night and day
Your heart will be sorely grieving.
For the stranger's land may be bright and fair,
And rich in its treasures golden.
But you'll pine, I know, for the long ago
And the love that's ne'er withholden


A stor mo chroi, in the stranger's land
There is plenty of wealth, and of wailing.
Bright gems adorn the great and grand
But there's faces with hunger paling.
The road may be weary and hard to tread
And the lights of their cities may blind you.
Oh turna stor, to a distant shore
And the one that you've left behind you.


A stor mo chroi, when the evening's mist
Over mountain and meadow is falling,
Turn, turn, a stor, from the throng and list
And maybe you'll hear me calling.
For the sound of a voice that you'll surely miss
For somebody's speedy returning.
A run, a run, won't you come back soon
To the love that is always burning.

Sorry, that should be "turn, a stor", and "the ones that you've left behind you", not the one.

Seán ac'Donncha does my favorite version on AN SPAILPÍN FÁNACH. Thee are a lot of little variations. A truly wonerful song.

this is the version in DT:

A STOR MO CHROI

A Stor Mo Chroi, when you're far away
From the house that you'll soon be leaving,
Sure it's many a time by night and by day
That your heart will be sorely grieving.
For the stranger's land may be bright and fair,
And rich in all treasures golden.
You'll pine, I know, for the long, long ago
And the heart that is never olden.

A Stor Mo Chroi, in the stranger's land
There's plenty of wealth and wailing.
Though gems adorn the rich and grand
There are faces with hunger pailing.
The road may be weary, and hard to tread
And the lights of the city blind you.
Oh turn, A Stor, to old Erin's shore
And the ones you have left behind you.

A Stor Mo Chroi, when the evening's mist
In the mountain and meadow is falling,
Oh turn, A Stor, from the throng and list
And maybe you'll hear me calling.
For the sound of a voice that you seldom hear
For somebody's speedy returning.
Aroon, aroon, Oh, won't you come back soon
To the one who really loves you.

line 4 of stanza 2 should read 'paling' not 'pailing'

AND I SING IT THIS WAY:

A Stor Mo Chroi, when you're far away
From the home that you'll soon be leaving,
Sure it's many a time by night and by day
That your heart will be sorely grieving.
The stranger's land may be bright with show,
And rich in all treasures golden.
But you'll pine, I know, for the long ago,
And a heart that is never olden.

A Stor Mo Chroi, in the stranger's land
There is plenty of wealth and wailing.
There are gems galore for the great and the grand,
Yet more faces with hunger paling.
The road may be weary, your heart be sore,
And the lights of the city may blind you.
Won't you turn, A Stor, to old Erin's shore
And the love you have left behind you.

A Stor Mo Chroi, when the evening's mist
In the mountain and meadow is falling,
Oh turn, A Stor, from the throng and list
And maybe you'll hear me calling.
Hear the sound of a voice that can only croon,
Like an angel choir hovering above you,
Aroon, aroon, won't you come back soon
To the one who will always love you.

what think ye? Do I blaspheme or is it not maybe a bit better this way?
