My darling, do not break your heart
Though I leave this Irish shore
Though their cruel laws may force us to part
Fate may join we two once more
Take this farewell kiss as a token
Of my love while far I stray
For true love will never be broken
Let me kiss your tears away
Like the rain, like the rain
When he turned his back to Donegal
Her tears fell like the rain
Don't let your eyes fill with sorrow, love
Don't wet your pretty cheeks with tears
There will come a bright new tomorrow, love
There will come an end to fears
Dark may seem our lives December
Time will bring to us the May
Love will guide me back remember
Let me kiss your tears away
Like the rain, like the rain
When he turned his back to Donegal
Her tears fell like the rain
Take this jewelled ring to wear, my love
While I am o'er the wave
Next my heart you know I will wear, my love
This lock of hair you gave
Kiss me once before we sever
For my safety say, you'll pray
You will be my dearest, forever, love
Let me kiss your tears away
Like the rain, just falling like the rain
When he turned his back to Donegal
Her tears fell like the rain
Like the rain, like the rain
When he turned his back to Donegal
His tears fell like the rain
