Re: translation please

I love this song! I play it at every gig.

I heard Keith Frank's version first. He may have written it - I'm not sure. Later the Racines did a really great version.

I think this is pretty close on the lyrics:

He, malheureurse, ta maison est loin mo,
J’après venir sur mon cheval
Et mon cheval a pas d'souliers.
Il a pas d'chaussons.

Hey, unfortunate one, your house is far from me.
I am coming on my horse
And my horse has no shoes
He has no socks.
