[chordsandlyrics]

[D]Oh, night and day I’m dreaming of the Hills of [G]Done[D]gal

The [G]heather on the [D]hillside and the [Bm]sunshine over [A]all

And it’s [F#m]westward I’d be [Bm]going a[A]cross the ocean [D]blue

To [Dm]wake a[E7]gain the [A]happy hours that [E7]long ago I [A7]knew.

That [F#m]long a[E7]go I [A7]knew!

Chorus

Oh [D]Hills [G]of Done[D]gal, to me you ever call

In [F#m]ev’rywind that [A]wanders o’er the wide and [E7]lonely [A7]sea

And [D]please God, if [G]He so wills, soon I’ll see my [D]Irish hills

The Hills of [Bm]Donegal so [D]dear [A7]to [D]me.

I mind the laughing valleys that look up at dawn of day
To watch the dawn light creeping o’er the rugged crests of grey
And I mind the linnets trilling when the dark clouds lift and go
And the grey hills send the sunshine to the waiting hearts below
To the waiting hearts below.
