DONEGAL RAIN
As sung by Andy M. Stewart on "Donegal Rain" (1997)

My darling, do not break your heart,
Though I leave this Irish shore.
Though their cruel laws may force us to part,
Fate may join we two once more.
Take this farewell kiss as a token
Of my love while far I stray,
For true love will never be broken.
Let me kiss your tears away.

Like the rain, like the rain,
When he turned his back to Donegal,
Her tears fell like the rain.

Don't let your eyes fill with sorrow, love
Don't wet your pretty cheeks with tears.
There will come a bright new tomorrow, love.
There will come an end to fears.
Dark may seem our lives' December.
Time will bring to us the May.
Love will guide me back, remember.
Let me kiss your tears away.

Like the rain, like the rain,
When he turned his back to Donegal,
Her tears fell like the rain.

Take this jewelled ring to wear, my love,
While I am o'er the wave.
Next my heart you know I will wear, my love,
This lock of hair you gave.
Kiss me once before we sever.
For my safety, say you'll pray.
You will be my dearest, forever, love.
Let me kiss your tears away.

Like the rain, just falling like the rain,
When he turned his back to Donegal,
Her tears fell like the rain.

Like the rain, like the rain,
When he turned his back to Donegal,
His tears fell like the rain.
