MÁIRIN DE BARRA. Irish, Slow Air (3/4 time). D Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). One part. The words to the song begin:

A Mháirín de Barra
Do mharaigh tú m'intinn
Do chuir tú beo i dtalamh mé
I gan fhios do m' mhuintir
Ar mo luí dhom ar mo leaba
Is ort 'sea bhím ag cuimhneamh
Is ar m'éirí dhom ar maidin
Mar gur chealg tú an croí dom

Máirín de Barra
You have deadened my mind
And you have left me sad
And destitute unknown to my people
As I lie on my bed
It's about you I am thinking
And when I rise in the morning
for you have pierced the heart inside me
