Biodh Áilleacht Ann

Let There Be Beauty by Enda Reilly

Féach an fharraige

Hear the foaming waves

Féach na carraigeacha

See those rocky caves

Bíodh áilleacht ann

Let there be beauty

Bíodh áilleacht ann

Let there be beauty

Clos na teangacha

Hear the many tongues

Tá muid ceangailte

See we’re all as one

Bíodh áilleacht ann

Let there be beauty

Bíodh áilleacht ann

Let there be beauty

Bíodh áilleacht ann

Let there be beauty

Fásann duile amháin

One leaf grows green

Téann sé ó glas go donn

loses it’s sheen

Titeann sé ón gcrann

falls from the tree

Bíodh áilleacht ann

Let there be beauty

Bíodh áilleacht ann

Let there be beauty

Bíodh áilleacht ann

Let there be beauty

Bíodh áilleacht ann

Let there be beauty

Bris na driseacha

Break the bramble canes

Bris na slabhraí móra

Break those heavy chains

Bíodh áilleacht ann

Let there be beauty

Bíodh áilleacht ann

Let there be beauty

Bíodh áilleacht ann

Let there be beauty

Fásann duile amháin

One leaf grows green

Téann sé ó glas go donn

loses it’s sheen

Titeann sé ón gcrann

falls from the tree

Bíodh áilleacht ann

Let there be beauty

Titeann sé sa chré

Falls to the clay

Ach piocann tusa é

It found you today

Is thug tú domsa é

You sent it my way

Is an áilleacht ann

And the beauty therein

Bíodh áilleacht ann

Let there be beauty

Bíodh áilleacht ann

Let there be beauty

Bíodh áilleacht ann

Let there be beauty



We All Own The Sky – The Button Factory Dublin

Posted on 23 Sep 2020

Continuing the series from the Button Factory Dublin, here’s We All Own The Sky. I had the privilege of singing this one again for my Lutheran friends in a wonderful zoom event. We had an International service which tackled the Climate Change Crisis with St. Finians Lutheran Church of Dublin, Ireland, University Lutheran Chapel of Berkeley, California, a Catholic priest Fr. Dermot Lane and myself here in Detroit.
I’m not a religious person but I do respect that religions have an important role in society and so I was happy to collaborate because we all need to reconsider our place in the world and how we can live in harmony with the Earth.

We All Own The Sky hit home in the last days as the smoke from the California fires created a strange haze in our skies here in Detroit. I found myself looking at a very dim sun low in the sky and looking away quickly realising I shouldn’t look at the sun. Anyways, the core message of this songs is that we are all connected by the the air and the oceans and if we want to have a hope of fixing these problems we need more international co-operation.

For a studio version and more of my Climate Change Songs go to www.climatechangesongs.com

We All Own The Sky by Enda Reilly

We all own the Sky

Blue in the day and Black in the Night

We all own the Wind

That blows around the World again 

What Have we done to her?

Changing her behaviour.

What can we do for her?

Can we even save her?

Forgive Me Mother Earth 

We all own the Seas

Americans and Japanese

We all own the Seas

Indians and Chinese

We all own the Wind

As it blows around the World again

We all own the Wind

European African

What Have we done to her?

Changing her behaviour.

What can we do for her?

Can we even save her?

Forgive Me Mother Earth

Caledonia – New Video

Posted on 14 Sep 2020

Made famous in Ireland by Delores Keane and written by Dougie Mclean, this is a favourite of almost everyone. I’ve heard it abused by drunken women at the end of a night, wanting to get the buzz of singing it, but forgetting a few elusive words in the chorus! Classic! I myself have changed it up somewhat in the feel of it. Somehow I felt the words needed more air around them. My guitar followed along and here’s what came out. The little melody in the instrumental is great too so I felt that needed to be highlighted. Enjoy and Let me know what you think below! Now you know where to come when you are drunk and want a “hit” of Caledonia!
