THE CLIFFS OF DONEEN
You may travel far far from your own native land,
Far away o'er the mountains, far a-way o'er the foam,
all the fine places that I've ever been
There is none can compare with the cliffs of Doneen.
Take a view o'er the mountains, fine sights you'll see there
You'll see high rocky mountains and the west coast of
Where the town of Kilkee and Kilrush can be seen
From the high rocky slopes round the cliffs of Doneen.
It's a nice place to be on a fine summer's day
Among the wild flowers that never do decay
Oh the hares and lofty
pheasants are plain to be seen
Making homes for their young round the cliffs of Doneen.
Fare thee well to Doneen, fare thee well for a while
And to all the kind people I'm leaving behind
To the streams
and the meadows where late I have been
And the high rocky slopes round the cliffs of Doneen.
