Dingle Bay 2 Song Lyrics And Guitar Chords. I call this one Dingle Bay 2 because there's another song by The Wolfe Tones with the same name. I don't know which was writen first. As far as I know this is a recent songs written in the last 50 years or so, well 50 years is recent when referring to folk songs. The youtube video is by Paddy Day. I choose this one because I love his voice. He does a might version of Shanagolden, it would bring a tear to a stone, as they say. If these chords don't suit your voice try changing them to - D=G, G=C, Em=Am, A7=D7.

The[D] sun was [G]sinking towords the [D]westward
The [D]fleet is leaving Dingle [Em]shore,,[A7]
I [D]watch the[G] men row in their [D]curraghs
As they [G]mark the fishing [A]grounds near Scellig[D] Mor,,D7
All [G]through the night men toil until the [D]daybreak
while at home their wives and sweethearts kneel and [Em]
pray,,A7]
That[D] God might[G] guard them and pro[D]tect them
and [G]send them safely [A]back to Dingle [D]Bay.

I see the green Isle of Valencia
I mind the caves around Lough Lein
The gannets swinging with abandon
As they watch the silver store that comes their way
I also see a ship on the horizon
She is sailing to a country far away
on board are exiles feeling lonely
As they wave a fond farewell to Dingle Bay

Now years have passed as I came homeward
And time has left me old and grey
I sit and muse about my childhood
And the happy hours I spent near Dingle Bay
I see again the green isle of Valencia
And the Isle of Inishmore seems far away
I am  always dreaming of my homeland
And that little spot I left at Dingle Bay
