As I stand aboard the starboard bow and I watch the ocean foam
As I view each new horizon I drive further from my home
A sailor on a foreign ship and bound for Montreal
For to view the world to make my destination Donegal.

I would make my way from Malin to Bundoran through Raphoe
From Portsalon down to Killybegs by Creeslough and Dungloe
I'd wander round Barnesmore Gap on everyone I'd call
Then beyond the Bluestack Mountain to the town of Donegal.

Oh Donegal I miss you and I'll never understand
Why I left you for these 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.
