牋牋牋牋牋?Alouette Iselin sent me these words years ago: they seemed to beg to be sung, so I made this tune.


Gordon ?12-string guitar

Carol - harp


牋牋牋牋牋?Och, hush ye then, och hush ye

牋牋牋牋?There's herrin's in the bay

牋牋牋牋?An' you'll be the wee fisherman

牋牋牋牋?Someday - someday


牋牋牋牋?Och, rest ye then, och rest ye

牋牋牋牋?The herrin's do be small

牋牋牋牋?An' you're the boy when you'll be big

牋牋牋牋?Will catch them all


牋牋牋牋?Och, hush ye then, och hush ye

牋牋牋牋?The night is dark an' wet

牋牋牋牋?An' you too wee, o heart o' mine

牋牋牋牋?For fishin' yet


牋牋牋牋?Och, hush ye then, och hush ye

牋牋牋牋?'Tis cowld upon the sea

牋牋牋牋?But this wee house is warm itself

牋牋牋牋?For you an' me


牋牋牋牋?Och, sleep ye now, och sleep ye

牋牋牋牋?For sure a night will come

牋牋牋牋?When you'll be wakin' on the sea

牋牋牋牋?An' me at home





Hush Song is recorded on the album Herrings in the Bay
