Three pubs in Bahola

Lyrics

I said farewell London and I crossed the Irish Sea
I travelled down from Dublin with the good old CIE
Through the midlands and Roscommon, with Mayo on my mind
I dreamed of lovely Mary, the girl I left behind

CHORUS
There’s three pubs in Bahola, as everybody knows
MacDonald’s, Clarke’s and Roche’s where the craic like honey flows
And lovely Mary’s here with me, I never more will roam
Mayo how I love you, Bahola my dear home

Three years ago I left it on a lonely winter’s night
In the village of Bahola, the moon was shining bright
Two lonely hearts were broken and the tears, they fell like rain
Now here I am in Mayo, Bahola once again
Chorus

It’s a far cry from the hustle of a busy London life
But I could never go back to all that crazy strife
Bahola hasn’t changed at all in the time I’ve been away
I’m back in love with Mary and I never more will stray
Chorus

A pub crawl round Bahola and then I know I’m home
