Home to Donegal

Lyrics

The lights of London are far behind
The thoughts of my homeland are crowding my mind
Familiar places come into view
I see my home now, soon I’ll see you

Talk to the old folk, Lord, they’re getting on
Treat them to late nights, sing a few songs
We’ll talk of the neighbours and life in the town
There’s so much to tell them, the days fly around

CHORUS
This is my homeland, the place I was born in
No matter where I roam, it’s in my soul
My feet may wander, a thousand places
But my heart will lead me back home to my Donegal

And then tomorrow, we’ll take a walk
Down to St.Mary’s, to a sheltered spot
We’ll kneel and pray there for the ones that have gone
And hope that they’re proud of their wandering son
Chorus
