Ystyria lwybr dy draed a threfna dy holl ffyrdd yn uniawn  – Diarh 4, 26

Yn Aberteifi fe ddigwyddodd

Tro ar gyhoedd yr holl dre.

Eu fath ni fu ers ugain mlynedd

O’r blaen o fewn magwyry’r lle.

Dienyddiwyd ar y grogbren

Fachgen ieuangc heini llon

Trwy yspeilio a lladratta

Daeth ef i’r sefyllfa hon.

Composed by J. Lloyd, Cardigan on 13 Oct 1821.

Ballad printed by Evan Jones, Heol-y-prior, Caerfyrddin.
