[Intro]
C Em F C

[Verse]
Em F CUnder the cross of St. Brigid and the Holy Ghost
GTrekking for miles all over the Donegal coast
C Em F CWith a bottle of whiskey and a fluttering heart
G F CFor the smell of a pound, oh these hills had to part
Em F CAnd he made his way down to Belfast town
GAt the time the whole island was still under the crown
C Em F CBut when a so-called truce only brought more strife
G F CMaking the sign of the cross could cost you your life
[Chorus]
Em F CO Carndonagh well I didn’t know ya
GThough I swear in dreams I’ve been over
C Em F CWell I’d sail a million miles on the Irish Rover
G F CTo spend a little time over in Carndonagh
Em F CImmigration, oh to stay
GThough millions had gone before it doesn’t ease the pain
C Em F CBut when a fella was shot done for the way that he prayed
G F CHe took a ship and his chances to the USA
Em F CAnd he settled over in Boston town
GOh it was nice not to hear Croppy lie down
C Em F CAnd he made a little something out of nothing at all
G F CBut his thoughts always wandered off to Donegal
[Chorus]
Em F CO Carndonagh well I didn’t know ya
GThough I swear in dreams I’ve been over
C Em F CWell I’d sail a million miles on the Irish Rover
G F CTo spend a little time over in Carndonagh
Em F CWell the years go by but the love‘s still there
GAnd there are nights oh I swear l hear him in prayer
C Em F COh and from this earth he is long since gone
G F CI feel the presence of his soul when I sing this song
[Chorus]
Em F CO Carndonagh well I didn’t know ya
GThough I swear in dreams I’ve been over
C Em F CWell I’d sail a million miles on the Irish Rover
G F CTo spend a little time over in Carndonagh
[Chorus]
Em F CO Carndonagh well I didn’t know ya
GThough I swear in dreams I’ve been over
C Em F CWell I’d sail a million miles on the Irish Rover
G F CTo spend a little time over in Carndonagh
