Homeplace in Mayo

Lyrics

Around Clew Bay waters in County Mayo
You meet friendly people wherever you go
So I must confess, way down in the west
Is my homeplace in Mayo, the place I love best

CHORUS
You may go to your cities for fortune and fame
Come back to Mayo for fishing and game
If there’s need for rest, come back to the west
To your homeplace in Mayo, the place I love best

Be it Knock, Crossmolina or old Newport town
Castlebar, Westport both famed and renowned
Achill, Belmullet, where fond memories grow
Come back to your homeplace in County Mayo
Chorus

Living in Dublin, Cork or Tralee
Working in Limerick or far overseas
Cead Mile Failte is waiting you see
When you visit your friends in Mayo by the sea
Chorus
