about

Recordiwyd gan Bertie Stephens (bridiwr cwn hela, g. 1900), Llangeitho. Mae'r rhythm curo ar y bwrdd yn dynwared swn y 'felin ban' (melin pannu gwlân). Clywodd y gân hon yng nghyfnod y Rhyfel Byd Cyntaf gan 'Dai Arian Drwg' - dyn a werthai watsys mewn ffeiriau.

'The Black Mare'

Recorded by Bertie Stephens (hunting dog breeder, b. 1900), Llangeitho. The rhythm he beats on the table is mimicking a 'felin ban' or fulling mill. He heard this song at the time of the First World War, sung by 'Dai Arian Drwg' ('Bad Money Dai') who sold watches in fairs.

lyrics

Mi es i ffair Henfeddau,
Mi brynais gaseg ddu,
A phunt a rois amdani,
A mawr y ngholled i.
Tyri-yff, tyr-i yff, tyri dal.
Tyri-yff, tyri-i yff, tyri dal.
A mawr fy ngholled i.

Fe fwydais i’r hen gaseg,
A dwr a cheirch a bran,
Nes aeth yn hen greadur
Rhy dew i symud cam.
Tyri-yff, tyr-i yff, tyri dal.
Tyri-yff, tyri-i yff, tyri dal.
Rhy dew i symud cam.

Fe drigodd yr hen gaseg,
A’i chalon oedd fel dwy,
A ‘ngadael i pryd hynn
Heb allu prynu mwy.
Tyri-yff, tyr-i yff, tyri dal.
Tyri-yff, tyri-i yff, tyri dal.
Heb allu prynu mwy.

Fe ddaeth y brain a’r piod
I ofyn am brid y cif;
Fe ddwedodd un pioden,
‘Mae’n ddigon i ni i gyd!’
Tyri-yff, tyr-i yff, tyri dal.
Tyri-yff, tyri-i yff, tyri dal.
‘Mae’n ddigon i ni i gyd!’

Chwi bobol nawr sy’n gwrando,
Yn fawrion ac yn fân,
Er mwyn cael caseg arall,
Rhowch geiniog am y gân.
Tyri-yff, tyr-i yff, tyri dal.
Tyri-yff, tyri-i yff, tyri dal.
Rhowch geiniog am y gân.
