Lyrics:
     
    Donegal Joe

Every day I pass you by
Squatting staring at the sky
As down to meet the boys I go
I say hello to Donegal Joe

Old Ireland he's been up and down
He's done his bit in every town
In sun and rain and sleet and snow
Back he comes old Donegal Joe

Holding out his hands for you
Just a little coin or two
on the pavement times goes slow
singing songs old Donegal Joe

Not a worry not a care
Old twinkley eyes will smile and stare
until he gets your money oh
they all know him Donegal Joe

Donegal Joe Donegal Joe
does anyone know where did he go
Donegal Joe

o welcome stranger welcome back
all you need is a six pack
the nuns will feed you that you know
at their window late knocks Donegal Joe

up again so bright and early
after his bread marmalade tea
upstairs scared kids play piano
off to the hills goes Donegal Joe

to the same old spot or maybe further
depends on the same old weather
East or west this man could go
He's getting old now Donegal Joe

He's made it here through all these years
Still away from it all he steers
Doesn't know why he'll never know
That's what happened to Donegal Joe

(ch)

Just let it go one day and and ran
This new life he began
His wife she married another man
So lost in grief is Donegal Joe

Don't tell anybody the reason why
think back might make him cry
he had a big house lotsa dough
a day labourer was Donegal Joe

Its best to forget what didn't go
What might have happened he'll never know
He surrendered to the winds that blow
From the mountains down all rivers flow

That's why I always say hello
That's why I always say hello 
Destroyed by love not money o
My only hero Donegal Joe

(ch)
One day I gave him 50 pence
He danced a jig i had no sense
O he wouldn't let me go
Till I had a drink with Donegal Joe

Where he is now i don't know
Where he is i just don't know
Died in a ditch I imagine so
Was she really worth it Donegal Joe
