River Moy

Lyrics

On a Mayo summer morning I strolled down through the fields
The pheasant and the woodcock, before my step would yield
And then on to the river where oft I’d cast a fly
I knew each pool and stony hide where silver salmon lie

CHORUS
In the County of Mayo down by the River Moy
Where oft for salmon and for trout, I fished there as a boy
Damned city life has claimed me, for a mn must earn his pay
But still I hope I will return to fish another day

But now I’m only dreaming of tha lovely River Moy
Fond memories are all the gain a man has from a boy
For smog and smoke fair dulled my heart to drink away my pay
But still I hope I will return to fish another day
Chorus x 2
