Oh I know it's not right reminiscing tonight
Of days that are gone and returning no more.
For the girl I dream of has another man's love,
Far, far away on my Donegal shore.

But why should I care, for she's happy o'er there
She may have children she may be wealthy or poor
But I can't help my dreams of what might have been
If I'd stayed at home at my Donegal Shore.

Now it's wintertime there, all the trees will be bare
And the rain clouds will darken my native Gweedore
But if that girl I could hold every raindrop would be gold
It would fall all around us on my Donegal shore.

(Inst)

Now there's no one to blame, but before she took his name
When she told me she loved him it hurt to the core
But I could never descend to be only her friend
So I left her there on my Donegal shore.

Now it's wintertime there, all the trees will be bare
And the rainclouds will darken my native Gweedore
But if that girl I could hold every raindrop would be gold
It would fall all around us on my Donegal shore.

But if that girl I could hold every raindrop would be gold
It would fall all around us on my Donegal shore
