Irish State of Mind


An Irish State of Mind July 20, 2013

In a New York bar, pretty far, with Donegal on my mind
 Missing my country, miss my friends, in an Irish state of mind
 Donegal town, Bundoran, Killybegs to Malin Head
 I miss them all that's for sure, that's what an old man said
 This is my new town; don't know if I'll stay
 The Donegal feeling is with me every other day
 I left sweet Gweedore behind me on that Irish shore
 Sometimes I dream I'm home, who could ask for anything more
 Just for a little while to walk an Irish mile
 To be with them all, that brings a smile
 Some future day I'll be on my way to kiss that Blarney stone
 When that day comes I'll know for sure I'm home
 In a New York bar, pretty far, with Donegal on my mind
 Missing my country, miss my friends, in an Irish state of mind
