first_imgAfter a start playing monthly gigs for friends at Santa Monica’s O’Brien’s Tavern in 1995, Gaelic Storm’s popularity skyrocketed when it appeared in James Cameron’s Titanic as the Celtic party band in the ship’s steerage.Now the American-based band have released this song – with a very Donegal feel! We’ve included the lyrics if you fancy singing along!Lyrics:‘was up in the Bluestack mountains, D’arcy kept a bit of a stillWe were sneaking home a bottle, when the guards came up the hill“Lose the booze” cried D’arcy and before we could reply,He’d dumped it in the nosebag of his donkey standing by.The donkey had a ganky leg, and only one good eye.When he got a lick of the whiskey, he’d swear that he could flyHe rocketed through the roundabout, and down by Jamesie’s bar,Then he vaulted through the hedges at the track at BallintraHere’s to you, to me and one and allTo the garda, and the gargle, and the trophy on the wallHere’s to you, to me and one and allThe day that D’arcy’s drunken donkey won the race at Donegal The garda chased the donkey, and we followed in pursuit,For fear they’d spill the whiskey, we begged them not to shootWe barreled through the turnstiles, we got there just in time,To place our bets before the lot of ’em reached the starting line.The flag was up, the race was on, the donkey looked behindHe saw the guards were after him but sure he didn’t mindHe had himself another sip, and a second one as well,Then bucked and kicked and knocked the competition all to hell.Here’s to you, to me and one and allTo the garda, and the gargle, and the trophy on the wallHere’s to you, to me and one and allThe day that D’arcy’s drunken donkey won the race at DonegalThe donkey passed the post about a lap or two aheadHe finished off the whiskey, then toppled over deadWe went to check the bets and found when everything was doneThe garda came in second and paid 25 to one!So we dragged the donkey’s carcass down to Jamesie’s for a pintTo drink up all our winnings, and to celebrate the nightWe missed the poor old donkey, but still we had to laughWhen Jamesie made a trophy of the donkey’s better halfSo raise a beer in the air, to the famous derriereEverybody raise a glass to D’arcy’s ass! D’arcy’s ass!Everybody raise a glass to D’arcy’s ass! D’arcy’s ass!Here’s to you, to me and one and allTo the garda, and the gargle, and the trophy on the wallHere’s to you, to me and one and allThe day that D’arcy’s drunken donkey won the race at DonegalDDTV: FROM THE DECK OF THE TITANIC MOVIE..TO D’ARCY’S DRUNKEN DONEGAL DONKEY! was last modified: September 13th, 2011 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:donegalGAELIC STORMlast_img
