On Ilkla Moor Baht 'at. On the list to learn.
The 1998 book by Arnold Kellett, On Ilkla Mooar baht 'at: The Story of the Song, traces the origin of the music and the at times speculative development of the verses. Ilkley was founded as a village cAD79; its environs, including the Moor, is an area of outstanding natural beauty. The Spinners recorded it on Columbia in 1957, and it has been used as incidental music in a number of Yorkshire-oriented TV series.
The traditional English song, 'On Ilkla Moor Baht ‘at', comes from the County of Yorkshire, and it is written in Yorkshire dialect, which must look pretty strange to anybody not from the British Isles. The title roughly translates into standard English as 'On Ilkley Moor Without a Hat'. A moor is a piece of open - often windy and cold - land, almost a wilderness (think of Cathy and Heathcliff cavorting on the moors in Wuthering Heights, and shiver!). You need a hat in the winter, and going to a moor without one is a bad idea . A D A7 D D7 Wheear 'as ta bin sin ah saw thee? G D G On Ilkla Moor baht 'at! D G On Ilkla Moor baht 'at!
