Londonderry to the Foyle

Tonight I dream about my Maiden city
I'll go back to the days I spent there as a boy
I dream about the friends I left behind me
in my city, Londonderry on the Foyle

Well my mother she writes to my here twice weekly
and she tells me all the things are going on
and she tells me of the bombings and the shootings
in my city, Londonderry on the Foyle

But tonight I lay upon my bed I'm dreaming
I am dreaming of the friends I left behind me
And I dream about my sweetheart in the Fountain
In my city, Londonderry on the Foyle

But once more I am coming home aboard the steamship
On Lough Foyle once more I'm passing by Colmore
And I see those old walls still standing
They''re round my city Londonderry on the Foyle

I can see the old cathedral it's still standing
and not far away the old Memorial Hall
And I see the crimson banner, it's still flying
Over my city Londonderry on the Foyle.
