about

This Welsh folk song was collected by Mary Davies of Cardiff in 1908, from the singing of David Evans, 
who in turn had heard it sung by Thomas Elias (Y Bardd Coch), a travelling tailor, in 1828

lyrics

)Dacw ‘nghariad lawr yn y berllan
Tw rymdi ro rymdi radl idl al
O na bawn i yno fy hunan

Tw rymdi ro rymdi radl idl al
Dacw’r tŷ a dacw’r ‘sgubor

Dacw’r ddrws y beudy’n agor
Ffaldi radl idl al,
Ffaldi radl idl al,
Tw rymdi ro rymdi radl idl a

l

Dacw’r dderwen wych ganghennog

Tw rymdi ro rymdi radl idl al
Golwg arni sydd dra serchog

Tw rymdi ro rymdi radl idl al
Mi arhosaf yn ei chysgod

Nes daw ‘nghariad, daw fy nghariad

Ffaldi radl idl al,
Ffaldi radl idl al,
Tw rymdi ro rymdi radl idl al


Mi arhosaf yn ei chysgod

Nes daw ‘nghariad, daw fy nghariad

Ffaldi radl idl al,
Ffaldi radl idl al,
Tw rymdi ro rymdi radl idl al


Dacw’r delyn, dacw’r tannau

Tw rymdi ro rymdi radl idl al

Beth wyf gwell, heb neb i’w chwarae? 

Tw rymdi ro rymdi radl idl al
Dacw’r feinwen hoenus fanwl

Beth wyf nes heb gael ei meddwl?

Ffaldi radl idl al,
Ffaldi radl idl al,
Tw rymdi ro rymdi radl idl al

Dacw’r feinwen hoenus fanwl

Beth wyf nes heb gael ei meddwl?

Ffaldi radl idl al,
Ffaldi radl idl al,
Tw rymdi ro rymdi radl idl al

(Translation)
There’s my love down in the orchard

Tw rymdi ro rymdi radl idl al
Oh, how I wish I was there myself

Tw rymdi ro rymdi radl idl al
There’s the house and there’s the barn

There’s the cowshed door open
Ffaldi radl idl al,
Ffaldi radl idl al,
Tw rymdi ro rymdi radl idl al



There’s the great branchy oak

Tw rymdi ro rymdi radl idl al
It’s got a very pleasant look

Tw rymdi ro rymdi radl idl al
I will wait in its shade

Until my love comes, comes my love

Ffaldi radl idl al,
Ffaldi radl idl al,
Tw rymdi ro rymdi radl idl al


I will wait in its shade

Until my love comes, comes my love 

Ffaldi radl idl al,
Ffaldi radl idl al,
Tw rymdi ro rymdi radl idl al



There’s the harp, there are the strings

Tw rymdi ro rymdi radl idl al
What’s the good with no one to play it?

Tw rymdi ro rymdi radl idl al
There’s the lively, careful maiden

How much closer am I to winning her?
Ffaldi radl idl al,
Ffaldi radl idl al,
Tw rymdi ro rymdi radl idl al


There’s the lively, careful maiden

How much closer am I to winning her?
Ffaldi radl idl al,
Ffaldi radl idl al,
Tw rymdi ro rymdi radl idl al
