Does anyone know the words to yeats's Stolen Child?

It goes- come away you stolen child, to the watersd and the wild, with a fairy hand in hand, for the world's more full of weeping then you can understand

Thankyou

Willow

Hmmmm. I wonder who did the recording on that page you linked to, Martin. It's terrific. CDNow (www.cdnow.com) has samples of the song recorded by Golden Bough, Phil Callery, and Loreena McKennitt - and the recording you linked to isn't any of the three. I have the McKennitt "Elemental" album, which apparently came out as an LP in 1985. It lists McKennitt as the source of the music, and Golden Bough credits her for the tune, too. It's a great tune....er, "air."

I haven't even listened to the sample - just chased up the link in a quiet moment in class!

I agree its a fine air. I'm not normally keen on setting well known poems to music - but this one works very well. I've been known to sing it myself. I love Phil's version of it - preferably when he does it unaccompanied, mind you. As far as I know, the air is Loreeena McKennits alright.

Regards

This was recorded in the eighties by the Waterboys with some of the words spoken by, I think, the owner of the local pub where some of the recording was done. I think it was in Spiddal.

Good Luck,

Ian M.
