Melody - Seq. by Barry Taylor
Line

If to me you can be true,
Just as true as I to you,
It's one, two, three, four, five and six
Sing the Bells of Aberdovey.
One, two, three, four, five and six
It's one, two, three, four, five and six
Sing the bells of Aberdovey.
Boys do love to be in love,
And girls do love to marry.
But my love's for only one,
For Bess of Aberdovey.
If your love is just as true
As this love I have for you,
It's one, two, three, four, five and six,
From the bells of Aberdovey.

2. Bold with love I'm back once more
Just to camp against your door.
It's one, two, three, four, five and six
Sing the Bells of Aberdovey.
One, two, three, four, five and six
It's one, two, three, four, five and six
Sing the bells of Aberdovey.
Here's and end to all faint hearts,
Till truth it is you're pleading.
If you just meet be half way,
It wil be all I'm needing.
If your love is half as true
As this love I have for you,
It's one, two, three, four, five and six,
From the bells of Aberdovey.

Os wyt ti yn bur i mi,
Fel rwyf fi yn bur i ti,
Mal un, dau, tri, pedwar, pump, chwech,
Meddai clychau Aberdyfi.
Un, dau, tri, pedwar, pump, chwech, saith,
Mal un, dau tri, pedwar, pump, chwech,
Meddai clychau Aberdyfi.
Hoff gan fab yw meddu serch,
Y ferch mae am briodi,,
Hoff gen innau ym mhob man
Am Morfydd Aberdyfi.
Os wyt ti'n fy ngharu i,
Fel rwyf i'n dy garu di,
Mal un, dau, tri, pedwar, pump, chwech,
Meddai clychau Aberdyfi.

2. Pan ddôf adref dros y môr,,
Cariad gura wrth dy ddôr;
Mal un, dau, tri, pedwar, pump, chwech,
Meddai clychau Aberdyfi.
Un, dau, tri, pedwar, pump, chwech,
Mal un, dau, tri, pedwar, pump, chwech,
Meddai clychau Aberdyfi.
Paid â'i wneud yn galon wan
Pan ddaw o dan dy faner,
Os bydd gennyt air i'w ddweud
Bydd gwneud yn well o'r hanner;
Os wyt ti'n fy ngharu i,
Fel rwyf fi'n dy garu di,
Mal un, dau, tri, pedwar, pump, chwech,
Meddai clychau Aberdyfi.


An old song, which appeared as early as 1785 in Charles Didben's play Liberty Hall.
