-Thank you to Alaw

0:03:310:03:35

-Welcome to Llanfair Caereinion.

-We have a fabulous evening in store.

0:03:350:03:39

-Sian James, Cut Lloi, Eilir Jones...

0:03:400:03:42

-..to name just a few of the artists

-ready to entertain you.

0:03:420:03:46

-And there's a surprise at the end,

-but I won't say any more for now.

0:03:460:03:50

-Are you fans of rugby?

0:03:500:03:52

-Yes!

0:03:530:03:54

-I went down for the first time

-last year to Cardiff.

0:03:540:03:57

-A gang from Llanfair

-like delinquents.

0:03:580:04:00

-We met in the Red Lion in Llanfair.

0:04:000:04:03

-We argued a bit, not knowing

-quite how to reach Cardiff.

0:04:030:04:07

-We argued among ourselves.

0:04:070:04:09

-To settle it,

-we asked the chap behind the bar...

0:04:090:04:13

-.."Can you tell us

-the best way of going to Cardiff?"

0:04:130:04:17

-"Are you walking or going by car?"

0:04:180:04:20

-"In a car," I said.

0:04:200:04:21

-"That's the best way," he said.

0:04:210:04:24

-We went down. The place was packed.

0:04:240:04:28

-It was boiling hot.

0:04:280:04:30

-Everyone was there,

-drinking and singing.

0:04:310:04:34

-In front of me was on old man

-with an empty seat beside him.

0:04:340:04:38

-I didn't like to pry.

0:04:380:04:40

-After a couple of pints,

-I asked about the empty seat.

0:04:400:04:44

-"Excuse me. I see

-you don't have anyone with you."

0:04:440:04:48

-"I bought a ticket for me

-and my wife, but she's dead now."

0:04:480:04:53

-"Sorry," I said,

-"sorry to hear that.

0:04:530:04:56

-"Have you kept the seat empty

-to remember her?"

0:04:560:04:59

-"I tried to sell the ticket

-to some of my friends."

0:05:000:05:03

-"Where are they?"

0:05:040:05:05

-"They've gone to the funeral."

0:05:050:05:08

-We have a stage full

-of happy young faces next.

0:05:150:05:19

-Llanfyllin Young Farmers

-have a reason to smile.

0:05:190:05:23

-The club's celebrating

-its 80th birthday this year.

0:05:230:05:26

-To perform Yma Wyf Innau I Fod...

0:05:270:05:29

-..with Catherine Parry conducting

-and Manon Watkins on the piano...

0:05:290:05:34

-..please welcome

-Llanfyllin YFC choir!

0:05:340:05:37

-# Two are battling it out

-outside the Pendeitsh

0:05:490:05:56

-# While the river still spews

-its pain into the estuary

0:05:560:06:01

-# The sound of bottles smashing

-as a marriage breaks down

0:06:020:06:07

-# And, as usual,

-no-one bothers to ask why

0:06:080:06:13

-# Girls without wedding rings

-are lying through their teeth

0:06:140:06:20

-# The town seems

-to have fallen over itself

0:06:200:06:25

-# But the moon continues to shine

-over these dirty streets

0:06:270:06:33

-# Like every amusing town

-in the world

0:06:330:06:40

-# It's a riot

0:06:400:06:43

-# And there's no star

0:06:430:06:46

-# For me tonight above my head

0:06:470:06:52

-# I'm a drunken mess but I know

0:06:530:06:59

-# That this is where I belong

0:06:590:07:04

-# Another new day

-slithers down Pool Street

0:07:060:07:12

-# The lads from the far side

-come in droves

0:07:120:07:17

-# They're coming to complain

-that there's nowhere better to go

0:07:180:07:24

-# Before going to the Harp

-to drink with their granddads

0:07:240:07:29

-# They have no dreams,

-or any white ships

0:07:300:07:36

-# But they have each other

0:07:360:07:39

-# Right from the cradle

0:07:390:07:42

-# And the sun still lifts

-the spirits of the locals

0:07:420:07:50

-# Like every amusing town

-in the world

0:07:500:07:55

-# It's a riot

0:07:560:07:59

-# And there's no star

0:07:590:08:03

-# For me tonight above my head

0:08:030:08:08

-# I'm a drunken mess but I know

0:08:090:08:15

-# That this is where I belong

0:08:150:08:21

-# The boys with their eagle eyes

0:08:210:08:24

-# Fill the air

-with their colourful language

0:08:250:08:27

-# They own the pavement

-of every street

0:08:270:08:33

-# Every street

0:08:330:08:37

-# But they, with their language,

-keep this town alive

0:08:370:08:43

-# Like every amusing town

-in the world

0:08:440:08:49

-# It's a riot

0:08:500:08:53

-# And there's no star

0:08:530:08:57

-# For me tonight above my head

0:08:570:09:02

-# I'm a drunken mess but I know

0:09:020:09:09

-# That this is where I belong

0:09:090:09:15

-# It's a riot

0:09:160:09:18

-# And there's no star

0:09:180:09:22

-# For me tonight above my head

0:09:220:09:28

-# I'm a drunken mess but I know

0:09:290:09:35

-# That this is where I belong

0:09:360:09:42

-# That this is where I belong #

0:09:430:09:50

-Thank you to Llanfyllin YFC choir.

0:10:080:10:10

-One of the best-known faces

-in the Welsh folk scene is next.

0:10:140:10:18

-Montgomeryshire blood

-flows through her veins.

0:10:180:10:21

-Sian was born and raised

-in Llanerfyl.

0:10:210:10:24

-She's made a priceless contribution

-to her area.

0:10:240:10:28

-The first song I'm going to sing

-is Fflyff Ar Nodwydd.

0:10:290:10:32

-I haven't sung it for many years.

0:10:320:10:35

-It's a song I wrote

-with a very dear friend...

0:10:350:10:39

-..the late Angharad Jones.

0:10:400:10:42

-We wrote many songs together

-in the '90s...

0:10:420:10:47

-..but this is my favourite.

0:10:470:10:49

-It's great to have Patrick

-with me too.

0:10:490:10:52

-# There are many tracks on my record

0:11:090:11:12

-# Some are tuneful,

-some are tuneless

0:11:130:11:16

-# But from all the tracks and tunes

0:11:160:11:20

-# You're the one

0:11:200:11:22

-# Oh, who lights up my world

0:11:220:11:25

-# You're the needle

-that goes through the tracks

0:11:390:11:42

-# Like a crack on slate -

-leaving a mark

0:11:430:11:46

-# I'm stuck with the same tune

0:11:460:11:49

-# Boring, useless

0:11:500:11:52

-# It almost overwhelms me

0:11:520:11:55

-# It's not fair,

-but that's how it is

0:12:080:12:11

-# You're the groove in my heart

0:12:120:12:15

-# The rest is noise,

-you're melodious

0:12:160:12:19

-# And me?

0:12:190:12:20

-# I'm just fluff on your needle

0:12:210:12:24

-# Fluff on a needle hanging on

0:12:240:12:27

-# Like the wool of an old sheep

-stuck in the drain

0:12:270:12:30

-# Good for nothing,

-wanting to fly free

0:12:310:12:33

-# Stuck in the thorns

0:12:340:12:37

-# Oh, night and day

0:12:370:12:40

-# The days of the record

-are like your days

0:12:530:12:56

-# They're numbered

-with the dawn of the CD

0:12:560:12:59

-# Fluff on a needle spoils the sound

0:13:000:13:03

-# I'd better change,

-I'd better change

0:13:030:13:07

-# I'd better change the machine

0:13:070:13:10

-# And move on

0:13:100:13:12

-# I'd better change,

-I'd better change

0:13:220:13:25

-# I'd better change the machine

0:13:260:13:29

-# And move on #

0:16:410:16:44

-Sit back and get ready to laugh

-so much it hurts.

0:16:440:16:48

-Please give a Montgomeryshire

-welcome to Eilir Jones.

0:16:490:16:53

-Thank you, Llanfair Caereinion,

-for the welcome.

0:17:000:17:04

-It's nice to be in the countryside.

-I love the countryside.

0:17:040:17:08

-I live in the countryside myself.

0:17:080:17:11

-Someone said they thought...

0:17:110:17:14

-..that the countryside

-was like the Third World.

0:17:140:17:17

-I don't know.

0:17:170:17:19

-One's full of uncivilized people...

0:17:190:17:23

-..and the other's in Africa

-and places like that.

0:17:230:17:27

-I was glad to hear

-that people from around here...

0:17:280:17:31

-..care about the less fortunate.

0:17:310:17:33

-An old woman

-from Llanfair Caereinion...

0:17:330:17:36

-..left a fortune in her will...

0:17:370:17:39

-..to the needy, the poor,

-the uncivilized...

0:17:390:17:43

-..to people who lived in huts.

0:17:430:17:45

-And d'you know what?

0:17:450:17:46

-A party was thrown

-when the money was received...

0:17:470:17:50

-..by the people of Cefn Coch.

0:17:500:17:52

-I live in a village

-called Llansannan.

0:17:540:17:57

-Llansannan is a small village,

-but it's larger than Meifod.

0:17:580:18:02

-What I like about Meifod is

-on the way in...

0:18:030:18:05

-..you find out how many people

-live there and what they're like.

0:18:060:18:10

-It says on the tarmac - 30, Slow.

0:18:100:18:12

-A man from Birmingham

-has moved to Llansannan.

0:18:170:18:22

-He said recently that

-nothing happened in Llansannan.

0:18:230:18:28

-Nothing happens?

0:18:280:18:30

-In the winter in Llansannan,

-there's plenty to do.

0:18:300:18:33

-We have whist drives and funerals.

0:18:340:18:38

-The Welsh word for a funeral

-around here is 'cligeth'.

0:18:390:18:42

-Both are similar.

0:18:430:18:45

-You get a bad deal in both.

0:18:450:18:47

-Spades are handy in both too.

0:18:470:18:49

-We have a little shop in Llansannan.

-It's very small.

0:18:520:18:57

-A jockey could hit his head

-on the door as he walks in.

0:18:580:19:01

-It's narrow,

-there's not much room for manoeuvre.

0:19:020:19:05

-If you bought a Curly Wurly,

-you'd walk out with it...

0:19:050:19:09

-..pointing towards the door in case

-it took something off the shelves.

0:19:090:19:14

-They used to sell French sticks

-but they were too long.

0:19:150:19:20

-Some fool bought a French stick

-and put it under his arm.

0:19:200:19:24

-As he turned, he knocked over

-30 worth of Ty Nant water.

0:19:250:19:30

-That's two bottles to you and me.

0:19:310:19:33

-There was water everywhere

-on the floor.

0:19:340:19:37

-A woman came in thinking

-she'd reached Cantre'r Gwaelod.

0:19:370:19:41

-Between the water

-and the tears of the shopkeeper...

0:19:410:19:45

-..seeing her profit disappearing,

-it was like a tsunami.

0:19:450:19:48

-The woman who'd walked

-into the shop slipped...

0:19:490:19:53

-..and landed on her back

-in the fruit and vegetable display.

0:19:530:19:58

-She was a large woman.

0:19:580:20:00

-It took four people

-a quarter of an hour to lift her...

0:20:000:20:04

-..and another two to

-pull a courgette from her backside.

0:20:040:20:08

-It was awful.

0:20:100:20:12

-No-one ate ratatouille

-in Llansannan for a month after.

0:20:120:20:17

-"Would you like ratatouille?"

-"No chance!"

0:20:170:20:21

-I live in an old house

-in the countryside.

0:20:230:20:25

-How can I tell

-I live in an old house?

0:20:260:20:28

-Is it on tithe maps?

-I don't know.

0:20:280:20:32

-Can I see on the deeds

-the age of the house?

0:20:320:20:37

-No. No idea.

-How do I know it's an old house?

0:20:370:20:40

-Because it costs a fortune

-to warm the place!

0:20:400:20:44

-I remember going as a child,

-not much smaller than I am now...

0:20:460:20:50

-..to Nain and Taid's house.

0:20:500:20:52

-That really was a cold house.

0:20:520:20:55

-Blimey!

0:20:550:20:56

-They didn't have a fridge.

-It was cold enough in the house.

0:20:560:21:02

-If they did have a fridge, everyone

-could go there to keep warm.

0:21:020:21:08

-Nain and Taid's bedroom

-was really cold.

0:21:090:21:15

-Do you know what?

0:21:150:21:17

-In 1912, before World War I,

-who came to stay for two weeks...

0:21:170:21:21

-..but Scott of the Antarctic -

-so he could acclimatize.

0:21:210:21:26

-He'd have stayed longer...

0:21:260:21:28

-..but the polar bear that was him

-developed frostbite.

0:21:280:21:32

-Goodness me, it was cold!

0:21:320:21:34

-The first thing Taid did

-after getting up in the winter...

0:21:350:21:39

-..was break the ice

-on the pee-pee pot.

0:21:390:21:41

-Nain would de-ice their spectacles.

0:21:420:21:45

-Do you know what was colder

-than Nain and Taid's bedroom?

0:21:450:21:48

-The toilet.

0:21:490:21:50

-The toilet.

0:21:510:21:52

-You'd go to the toilet.

0:21:530:21:56

-It would turn into icicles

-before you finished.

0:21:560:22:00

-In the olden days,

-people would be too embarrassed...

0:22:000:22:05

-..to have toilet paper on display.

0:22:060:22:08

-What would they do?

-They'd buy a dolly.

0:22:090:22:12

-A dolly with a ballgown.

0:22:130:22:15

-It would be put on top of the toilet

-paper to hide the toilet paper.

0:22:150:22:20

-When I was ten years old...

0:22:200:22:23

-..I wanted to know

-what the dolly had under her skirt.

0:22:230:22:26

-I got up one day

-and do you know what she had?

0:22:270:22:31

-Thermal knickers!

0:22:310:22:34

-The toilet paper itself! Ugh.

0:22:350:22:38

-Izal - medicated toilet paper.

0:22:380:22:41

-You could rub

-for a quarter of an hour...

0:22:410:22:44

-..and there'd be no marks on it.

0:22:440:22:47

-It was like Teflon.

0:22:500:22:51

-You might as well have rubbed

-your backside with a frying pan.

0:22:520:22:55

-It was awful. Useless.

0:22:560:22:59

-So Nain and Taid

-occasionally used the Daily Post.

0:22:590:23:03

-The trouble with the Daily Post

-is that it left a mark.

0:23:030:23:09

-The ink came off.

0:23:090:23:11

-I walked into the bedroom once.

0:23:110:23:13

-Nain was bent over like this...

0:23:140:23:17

-..with Taid behind her

-looking at her backside.

0:23:170:23:21

-I got a fright.

0:23:220:23:23

-"What are you doing?" I said.

0:23:230:23:26

-Taid turned round and said,

-"Shush, I'm reading the obituaries."

0:23:260:23:32

-Thank you very much! Goodnight.

0:23:330:23:37

-Thank you. I told you you'd laugh!

0:23:430:23:46

-Next is a young tenor...

0:23:470:23:49

-..who's in his final year at the

-Guildhall School of Music & Drama.

0:23:490:23:53

-He was raised in Llanfyllin.

0:23:530:23:55

-He was a keen member of the

-Young Farmers when he was younger.

0:23:550:23:59

-I've sang once before

-on the Noson Lawen stage...

0:24:000:24:03

-..at the 2015 Meifod Eisteddfod

-as part of Tri Tenor Trefaldwyn.

0:24:040:24:08

-I've performed

-at the Millennium Centre.

0:24:080:24:12

-I've just done a concert

-at Cadogan Hall in London.

0:24:120:24:17

-Home isn't far from here, it's

-about 15 minutes from Llanfyllin.

0:24:180:24:22

-It's always nice to come home

-to sing to a local audience.

0:24:220:24:26

-But it brings, what's the word,

-more pressure.

0:24:270:24:32

-He's going to perform one of

-the most beautiful solos in Welsh...

0:24:340:24:38

-..Bugail Aberdyfi.

0:24:380:24:39

-Please welcome one of your own,

-Robert Lewis.

0:24:400:24:43

-# I will venture now to sing a song

0:25:000:25:06

-# To woo you back, my sweet love

0:25:060:25:12

-# To your rocking chair by the fire

0:25:120:25:18

-# On Aberdyfi mountain

0:25:180:25:24

-# Why, my sweet maiden, why

0:25:250:25:30

-# Did you leave me

-and your perfect children?

0:25:300:25:36

-# Little Arthur

-calls for his mother

0:25:360:25:41

-# His heart is near breaking

0:25:410:25:47

-# The two orphaned lambs

-lie in the grove

0:25:480:25:54

-# And the children

-play with the lambs

0:25:540:26:00

-# Oh, return

0:26:010:26:04

-# My sweet love

0:26:040:26:10

-# To Aberdyfi mountain

0:26:110:26:19

-# This is how I venture

-to sing a song

0:26:290:26:34

-# To woo you back, my sweet love

0:26:350:26:40

-# To sit again by the fireside

0:26:410:26:46

-# On Aberdyfi mountain

0:26:460:26:52

-# I remember your pure voice singing

0:26:530:26:58

-# But neither you nor anyone else

0:26:580:27:04

-# Can ignore

-a small child's prayer

0:27:040:27:09

-# Who wants to see his mother

0:27:100:27:16

-# Saying farewell

-was just child's play

0:27:170:27:22

-# We will forgive each other

0:27:220:27:26

-# And reconcile

0:27:260:27:29

-Welcome back

-to the Montgomeryshire Noson Lawen.

0:28:160:28:19

-It would be hard not to hold an

-evening here without our next group.

0:28:200:28:24

-The enjoyment they have

-when singing...

0:28:240:28:26

-..is a lovely part

-of their performances.

0:28:270:28:29

-To perform Ddaw Hi Ddim,

0:28:290:28:33

-..please welcome Parti Cut Lloi.

0:28:330:28:35

-# I have a friend

-whose habit is borrowing money

0:28:450:28:51

-# Although this fair lad

-never thinks of paying it back

0:28:510:28:57

-# About a month ago,

-I met him on the way to the fete

0:28:580:29:04

-# And the fair lad asked to borrow

-three shillings and threepence #

0:29:050:29:12

-Well!

0:29:120:29:14

-# Said I #

0:29:140:29:16

-You're welcome to the money...

0:29:160:29:18

-..but the way people

-talk about you...

0:29:180:29:24

-# I think that

0:29:250:29:31

-# Come she won't

0:29:320:29:33

-# Come she won't

0:29:340:29:35

0:29:350:29:38

0:29:380:29:39

0:29:410:29:43

-# For a year or so, I've been

-on the brink of marrying a girl

0:29:470:29:53

-# Before reaching the altar

-at the village church

0:29:540:29:57

-# I proposed to the maid

-in the following way

0:29:580:30:01

-# I have a mother and four sisters

-who are very dear to me

0:30:010:30:09

-# Will their urgent begging

-secure them a place in our home? #

0:30:090:30:17

-Well.

0:30:180:30:19

-# Said I #

0:30:190:30:21

-with your in-laws is...

0:30:210:30:26

0:30:260:30:28

0:31:050:31:12

-# Who would be perfectly suited

-to me

0:31:120:31:15

-# I would become

-the object of her affection

0:31:160:31:19

-# A widow with a plentiful hoard

0:31:200:31:25

-# And childless

0:31:250:31:27

-# She had two drawers full of cash

0:31:280:31:32

-# And was only fifty years of age #

0:31:330:31:37

-Plenty of money, you said?

0:31:370:31:40

-# Very good #

0:31:400:31:43

-No children?

0:31:430:31:45

-# Even better #

0:31:460:31:48

-But she's fifty. She's old.

0:31:480:31:52

-Old?!

0:31:520:31:54

-How old are you?! She isn't old!

0:31:540:31:57

-A group of young farmers

-went out one Saturday.

0:32:510:32:56

-One of the lads

-slept under a tree in a park.

0:32:560:33:00

-He was blind drunk.

0:33:010:33:03

-He began thinking

-of how he'd find his way back.

0:33:030:33:06

-He found a path

-along the River Banwy.

0:33:060:33:09

-A christening was taking place.

0:33:090:33:13

-The minister saw the boy

-and said, "Come to us, sinner.

0:33:130:33:18

-"Would you like to be part

-of the service?"

0:33:180:33:21

-"Yes, why not?"

0:33:210:33:23

-He grabbed the boy

-and put his head underwater.

0:33:230:33:28

-He said to him,

-"Have you found Jesus Christ?"

0:33:280:33:32

-"No."

0:33:330:33:35

-"Right, we'll try again."

0:33:350:33:38

-He grabbed him

-and put his head underwater.

0:33:390:33:42

-"Sinner,

-have you found Jesus Christ?"

0:33:430:33:47

-"Well, no,

-I haven't found him at all."

0:33:470:33:51

-"Right, one more chance."

0:33:510:33:54

-By this point,

-the minister had had enough.

0:33:540:33:57

-He kept his head underwater

-for a couple of minutes.

0:33:580:34:01

-He lifts him out and says, "Sinner,

-have you found Jesus Christ?"

0:34:010:34:06

-"No," he said. "Are you sure

-this is where he fell in?"

0:34:060:34:10

-The next three women

-come from a very cultured lineage.

0:34:160:34:19

-They're a well-known family in this

-area - the Moeldrehaearn family.

0:34:190:34:24

-Angharad

-teaches at Ysgol Penweddig...

0:34:240:34:26

-..Caryl is in her second year

-at Cardiff University...

0:34:260:34:30

-..and Manon is in her final year

-at Caereinion High School.

0:34:300:34:33

-We're two sisters,

-Caryl and Angharad.

0:34:350:34:37

-Manon is our cousin.

0:34:370:34:39

-She's the daughter of Dad's brother.

0:34:390:34:42

-We've been singing as a family

-for years.

0:34:430:34:46

-Informal concerts.

0:34:460:34:48

-Plygain services.

0:34:490:34:51

-It's only fairly recently

-that we've sang as a trio.

0:34:510:34:57

-We'll happily sing

-with any family member!

0:34:570:35:01

-They're going to perform

-Chwarae'n Troi'n Chwerw.

0:35:020:35:05

-Please give a very warm welcome

-to Triawd Merched Moeldrehaearn.

0:35:050:35:09

-# Your life is very pleasant

0:35:200:35:23

-# You're happy with your lot

0:35:230:35:26

-# But something

-in the back of your mind

0:35:260:35:29

-# Is gnawing away at you

0:35:290:35:33

-# You fall into the trap

0:35:340:35:36

-# Knowing full well

-what you're doing

0:35:370:35:39

-# But there's nothing left

-but a foolish notion

0:35:400:35:43

-# That it'll all turn out alright

0:35:430:35:45

-# But it all falls apart

0:35:450:35:49

-# The wine becomes sour

0:35:490:35:51

-# The smile turns to tears

0:35:520:35:55

-# And the thrill turns to pain

0:35:550:35:59

-# And if you are somewhere

0:35:590:36:02

-# Listening to my song

0:36:030:36:06

-# Don't forget it'll all fall apart

-if you play with fire

0:36:060:36:13

-# And then, little by little

0:36:150:36:17

-# The pieces fall into place

0:36:180:36:20

-# You start to learn how to get

0:36:210:36:24

-# The best of both worlds

0:36:240:36:28

-# It becomes easier to tell lies

0:36:290:36:31

-# That sound as if they're true

0:36:320:36:34

-# And you know

-that your cup is full

0:36:340:36:37

-# And that the way ahead is clear

0:36:380:36:40

-# But it will all fall apart

-# You're fighting

-your own conscience

0:37:200:37:25

0:37:380:37:41

-# You try to close your eyes

-# On what, how and who

0:37:490:37:51

-# You know that it's all true

-# Pallida s'irrora

0:40:360:40:42

-# Ma che dal sangue mio

0:40:430:40:48

0:42:050:42:09

-In 2015,

-at the Meifod Eisteddfod...

0:42:100:42:13

-..I had the honour of working

-with Penri Roberts, Linda Gittins...

0:42:140:42:19

-..and youngsters from

-Cwmni Theatr Ieuenctid Maldwyn...

0:42:200:42:24

-..on a show about Nansi Richards.

0:42:240:42:27

-It was a real pleasure.

0:42:270:42:31

-I'm going to sing

-one of the songs from that show...

0:42:310:42:35

-..Pennant Melangell.

0:42:350:42:38

-The wonderful lyrics

-are by Nansi herself...

0:42:390:42:42

-..which makes the song

-even more special.

0:42:420:42:47

-But I have a surprise for you.

0:42:480:42:51

-Someone's going to be joining me

-to sing the song.

0:42:520:42:56

-Please give a warm welcome

-to Rhys Meirion.

0:42:560:43:00

-# Take me back

0:43:260:43:29

-# To Montgomeryshire

0:43:290:43:32

-# The journey

0:43:330:43:36

-# Isn't long

0:43:360:43:38

-# My soul is already there

0:43:400:43:46

-# Preparing

0:43:470:43:49

-# For the journey's end

0:43:490:43:53

-# The breath of her land

0:43:570:44:01

-# I can smell it

0:44:010:44:04

-# The path

0:44:040:44:06

-# Await my footsteps

0:44:070:44:11

-# My name

0:44:110:44:13

-# Was written in the books

0:44:140:44:18

-# Before I took my first steps

0:44:180:44:25

-# My grave

0:44:290:44:31

-# In Pennant Melangell

0:44:320:44:35

-# Will be five feet

-and one inch long

0:44:360:44:42

-# The grouse and pheasant

-will come to my side

0:44:430:44:49

-# And so will the shy moorhen

0:44:500:44:56

-# And I'll know for sure

0:44:560:45:00

-# When the time comes

0:45:010:45:03

-# I won't sleep too soundly

0:45:040:45:10

-# I'll hear

-the Nant Ewyn stream singing

0:45:110:45:17

-# Its solo

0:45:180:45:20

-# To the Blaen Cwm waterfall

0:45:200:45:24

-# Aah-aah-aah

0:45:290:45:35

-# Aah-aah-aah

0:45:360:45:42

-# Ooh-ooh-ooh

0:45:430:45:49

-# Aah-aah-aah

0:45:500:45:56

-# The graveyard in Pennant Melangell

0:45:560:46:00

-# Is like a sonnet

0:46:000:46:02

-# You can't put a sonnet on a map

0:46:040:46:09

-# If you walk there

0:46:110:46:14

-# My love

0:46:140:46:17

-# Remember to take off your cap

0:46:180:46:22

-# Remember

0:46:240:46:27

-# To take off

0:46:270:46:29

-# Your cap #
