Donegal Shore

Play

Of days that are gone and comming no more.
For the girl I dream of has another man's love,
Far, far away at 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 id stayed at home at my Donegal Shore.

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

Now there's noone 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 dawn
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
