I[D7]'ve[G] just called[Am] in to[D7] see you[Em] all, I'll[D] only[C] stay a[G] while
I[Em] want to[Bm] see how
you're[C] getting[G] on, I[Em] want to[Am] see you[C] smile.
I'm[G] happy[D] to be[C] back a[G]gain, I[Em] greet you[Am]
big and[C] small,
For there's[G] no place[Am] else on[D7] earth just[C] like the[D] homes of Done[G]gal
I always see the happy faces, smiling at the door, The kettle swinging on the crook, as I step up the floor. And
soon the taypot's fillin' up me cup that's far from small, For your hearts are like your mountains, in the homes of Donegal.
see your homes at parting day of that I never tire, And hear the porridge bubblin' in a big pot on the fire. The lamp
alight, the dresser bright, the big clock on the wall, O, a sight serene, celestial scene, in the homes of Donegal.
long to sit along with you and while away the night, With tales of yore and fairy lore, beside your fires so bright, And
then to see prepared for me a shake-down by the wall. There's repose for weary wanderers, in the homes of Donegal.
the night winds shriek and howl, inside there's peace and calm, A picture on the wall up there, our saviour with a lamp, The
hope of wandering sheep like me and all who rise and fall. There's a touch of heavenly love around the homes of Donegal.
tramp I am and a tramp I've been, a tramp I'll always he, Me father tramped, me mother tramped, sure trampin's bred in
me. If some there are my ways disdain and won't have me at all, Sure I'll always find a welcome in the homes of Donegal.
time has come and I must go, I bid you all adieu, The open highway calls me forth to do the things I do. And when I'm
trampin' far away I'll hear your voices call, And please God I'll soon return unto the homes of Donegal.
Here's the tin whistle notes I'm playing in the video.
