Hills Of Donegal   (Riverboat 1052)   Jack O'Leary, Nelda Eaton
OPENER    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
You may talk about Atlantis, how it's lost beneath the sea
And the grave of the unknown soldier or the cry of the old banshee
Who was the man in the iron mask, was Jack the Ripper set free?
But ask them all "where's Donegal"...

Left allemande and weave
And if I could I'd build a wall around old Donegal
The north and south to keep them out, by God I'd build it tall
Casinos, chicken ranches, I'd legalize them all
We'd have our own Las Vegas in the hills of Donegal


MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Four ladies (boys) promenade, once around the ring you're gonna go
Back home and swing your man, once around you know
Join up hands and circle to the left around and then
Allemande that corner girl, weave around that ring
*To stand on top of Errigal, it gives me such a thrill
And hear them say in Dublin, "There's gold in them there hills"
Casinos, chicken ranches, I'd legalize them all
We'd have our own Las Vegas in the hills of Donegal


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*And if I could I'd build a wall around old Donegal
The north and south to keep them out, by God I'd build it tall
Casinos, chicken ranches, I'd legalize them all
We'd have our own Las Vegas in the hills of Donegal


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads (Sides) square thru, 4 hands around the ring you go
Around the corner lady let's do a dosado
Swing thru and then, boy run to the right
Do a wheel & deal - no Ferris! - Eight chain 4
And if I could I'd build a wall around old Donegal
Swing the corner honey and you promenade around the hall
Casinos, chicken ranches, I'd legalize them all
We'd have our own Las Vegas in the hills of Donegal


TAG

We'd have our own Las Vegas in the hills of Donegal
