Liricí AmhránSong Lyrics

About Liricí AmhránSong Lyrics

This is a collection of song lyrics, mostly for Irish songs, but it has some Scottish, folk, and other songs in it as well.  I tend to add more obscure lyrics and lyrics from newer recordings that I like, but sometimes I also add songs that I particularly like or want to learn.  Many of these lyrics are sourced from Celtic Lyrics Corner, which is also much more comprehensive than this site, but at the time of this writing does not have lyrics for albums released after 2008 or 2009.

(Songs that are not traditional are copyrighted by other people, and arrangements of traditional songs may also be copyrighted, especially if the words were changed at all.  Therefore, please use this site for non-commercial purposes only, and don't hold me liable if you do get in trouble.)

If you print any of these songs using your browser's "Print" function, a print-friendly template will be used automatically.  You can also download YAML files containing the song lyrics and other metadata in a machine-readable (and human-readable) format.  Just click "View as YAML" at the top-right of any song page (or the bottom if you're on a mobile device).

The YAML files for each song declare the language(s) available for the song using ISO 639 language codes. These are translated to human-readable names using this list.
