As I stand aboard the starboard bow and watch the ocean foam
As I view each new horizon I drift further from my home
A exile on a foreign ship, I’m bound for Montreal
I give the world  to make my destination Donegal.

As I make my way from Malin to Bundoran to Raphoe
To Portsalon down to Killybegs through Creeslough and Dungloe
I'll wander round old Barnesmore Gap on everyone I'd call
And beyond the Bluestack Mountain to the town of Donegal

Oh Donegal I miss you and I'll never understand
Why I left you for some far off lands against my heart's command
Whenever fortune comes my way whatever may befall
I know I'll make my final destination Donegal
Yes,  I know I'll make my final destination Donegal
