The heath is green on

The dark green

To

kiss the slumbering

Own na Buidhe.
 
That

happy day ‘twas

but last May
 
‘Tis

like a dream to  
C7 
me
 
When

Donal swore, aye  
Bb 
o’er and o’er
 
We’d  
C7 
part no more a stór mo  
F 
chroidhe.

On Carrigdhoun the heath is brown
The clouds is dark o’er Ardnalee
And many a stream comes rushing down
To swell the angry Own-na-Buidhe.
The moaning blast is sweeping past
Through many a leafless tree
And I’m alone, for he is gone,
My hawk has flown, ochone mo chroidhe.

Soft April showers and bright May flowers
Will bring the summer back again.
But will they bring me back the hours
I spent with my brave Donal then
There’s but a chance – he’s gone to France,
To wear the Fleur-de-Lis.
But I’ll follow you, my Donal Dhu,
For still I’m true to you mo chroidhe.
