about

Moirney ny Cainle/Arrane y Guilley Hesheree [The Ploughboy’s Song] /St. Ives Fer Moh [Big Fair] -trad.Manx/Cornish
These Manx tunes have a going to the fair quality that blends well with this rollicking song about the big fair in St. Ives which attracts the whole family. Chuck orchestrated our vocal harmonies so is responsible for the interesting B minor 9 chord of the finale.

lyrics

Where has your daddy gone, so early in the evening?
Where has your daddy gone, gone away to Fer Moh”.
Where has your daddy gone, so early in the evening?
Where has your daddy gone, gone away to Fer Moh”.

Wash your face and comb your hair,
Climb on board and I’ll take you there.
Go where your daddy’s gone.
Gone away to Fer Moh.

Go where your daddy’s gone,
Go where your mammy’s gone...

Where has your mammy gone, so early in the evening?
Where has your mammy gone, gone away to Fer Moh”.
Where has your mammy gone, so early in the evening?
Where has your mammy gone, gone away to Fer Moh”.

See the pig dressed up so fine,
Glazing in the window pane.
Go where your mammy’s gone.
Gone away to Fer Moh.

Go where your daddy’s gone,
Go where your mammy’s gone,
Go where your brother’s gone...

Where has your brother gone, so early in the evening?
Where has your brother gone, gone away to Fer Moh”.
Where has your brother gone, so early in the evening?
Where has your brother gone, gone away to Fer Moh”.

Sing a carol ‘round the fire,
There’s no need of a chapel choir.
Go where your brother’s gone.
Gone away to Fer Moh.

Go where your daddy’s gone,
Go where your mammy’s gone,
Go where your brother’s gone,
Go where your sister’s gone...

Where has your sister gone, so early in the evening?
Where has your sister gone, gone away to Fer Moh”.
Where has your sister gone, so early in the evening?
Where has your sister gone, gone away to Fer Moh”.

Take a whisk and tease the boys,
There’s another dozen joys!
Go where your sister’s gone.
Gone away to Fer Moh.

Go where your daddy’s gone,
Go where your mammy’s gone,
Go where your brother’s gone,
Go where your sister’s gone,
Go where your lover’s gone...

Where has your lover gone, so early in the evening?
Where has your lover gone, gone away to Fer Moh”.
Where has your lover gone, so early in the evening?
Where has your lover gone, gone away to Fer Moh”.

Meet you underneath the light,
Steal a kissing in the night.
Go where your lover’s gone,
Gone away to Fer Moh.

Go where your daddy’s gone,
Go where your mammy’s gone,
Go where your brother’s gone,
Go where your sister’s gone,
Go where your lover’s gone,
Go where you’re going to...

Where are you going to, so early in the evening?
Where are you going to, gone away to Fer Moh”.
Where are you going to, so early in the evening?
Where are you going to, gone away to Fer Moh”.

Altogether off we go,
Going to St. Ive’s Fer Moh.
And all go together now,
Off we go to Fer Moh!
