lyrics

With the scent and sway of your shores
Don't take from me my precious little dove
Oh Donegal, let her go

You don't know the way she quivers and she shakes
As the engines carried her away
At my touch how she breaks into dust under the wake
Oh Donegal, let her go
Oh Donegal, let her go

You have secrets to keep, there is poison in The Glen
You have not heart when sailors sing
Your old selfish winds they would steal her in the end
Oh Donegal, let her go
Oh Donegal, let her go

I begged and I pleaded in a message to the sea
To bring back my little dove to me
Oh my love faretheewell, no she was not yours to keep
Oh Donegal, let her go
Oh Donegal, let her go

Send my dove back to me, send me rust of Autumn leaves
Gold of gorse, green of mead, and mountain bramble
All of these I shall weave into a coat of peppered tweed
Oh Donegal, let her go
Oh Donegal, let her go
Oh Donegal, let her go
Oh Donegal, let her go
