Last night I had a happy dream which filled my heart with joy
I dreamed I stood by mountain vale as oft times when a boy
I fished the port of pleasure pool I watched the brown trout play
Those were the happy days in Carn Carndonagh far away.

I saw the hills of Malin stretching east to Bunagee
I saw Culdaff and Lagg Strand close to Strabrega Bay
Those were the happy days in Carn Carndonagh far away.

I saw the little graveyard where my kindred bones were laid
The homely little chapel where I oft times knelt and prayed
I saw Culdaff and Lagg Strand close to Strabrega Bay
Those were the happy days in Carn Carndonagh far away.

I am tired of the city and I’m longing to return
Back again to Carn where the oil lamps brightly burn
The dear place of my childhood I am longing for the day
That’ll bring me back to Carn Carndonagh far away.
