Donegal Danny Lyrics And Chords By The Dubliners
Here's the story of Donegal Danny as told by Ronnie Drew.
This song is about a man who was the only survivor when a fishing boat was destroyed in a storm. When he got back to shore he never went back to sea again and he became very melancholy and he just tramped around the roads of Donegal. Whenever he was having a few pints he would retell the whole story of the disaster over and over again. His name was Danny, so they called him Donegal Danny.
