    Default Ann an Caolas Od Odrum

    Lyrics and translation for Ann an Caolas Od Odrum courtesy of Anne Lorne Gillies.

    Song's included in latest cd of Julie Fowlis ‎"Gach Sgeul - Every Story" as a part of a 2song-mix.
    But since I really like it separately here's another version by Ifan Rais.




    In Caolas Od Odrum where the seals would sleep
    where a human voice was never heard, only the sound of the waves and the calling of geese
    A stepmother nurses her children, softly singing a lullaby
    the movement of the waves gently rocks them to sleep.

    Hon da hon do hon da odar da
    Hon da hon do hon da odar da
    Hi o dan dao, hi o dan dao,
    Hi o dan dao, odar da, odar da

    A stepmother nurses her children, softly singing a lullaby
    the movement of the waves gently rocks them to sleep.
    The noble seal is mewling, the swan singing beside him
    the mermaid dreams in solitude of a hero.

    The noble seal is mewling, the swan singing beside him
    the mermaid dreams in solitude of a hero.
    In Caolas Od Odrum where the seals would sleep
    where a human voice was never heard, only the sound of the waves and the calling of geese.

    Ann an caolas od odram, far an coidleadh an rn
    'S far nach cluinnte guth duin' ach fuaim tuinne 's glog geidh
    Muime 'g altrum a pistean 's i gan tladh gu ciin
    Gu bheil tulgadh nan cuantan ga sor luasgadh nan suain

    Hon da hon do hon da odar da
    Hon da hon do hon da odar da
    Hi o dan dao, hi o dan dao,
    Hi o dan dao, odar da, odar da

    Muime 'g altrum a pistean 's i gan tladh gu ciin
    Gu bheil tulgadh nan cuantan ga sor luasgadh nan suain
    An rn roghail a' gusgail 'n eala guileag ri thaobh
    A' mhaighdeann-mhara 's i bruadar anns an uaigneas air laoch

    Chorus

    An rn roghail a' gusgail 'n eala guileag ri thaobh
    A' mhaighdeann-mhara 's i bruadar anns an uaigneas air laoch
    Ann an caolas od odram, far an coidleadh an rn
    'S far nach cluinnte guth duin' ach fuaim tuinne 's glog geidh
    "Gilgamesh, where are you hurrying to?
    You will never find that life for which you are looking.
    When the gods created man they allotted to him death,
    but life they retained in their own keeping"
