When it's moonlight in Mayo

Lyrics

It’s just a year ago today
I left old Erin’s Isle
My heart was throbbing in the soft light
Of my colleen’s smile
In all my dreams, I seem to hear
Her sweet voice soft and low
I know she’s waiting where we said
Goodbye in old Mayo

Chorus
For two Irish eyes are shining
And an Irish heart is pining
Where I kissed her and caressed her
In the gloaming long ago
Loving Irish arms will press me
And true Irish love caress me
And sweet Irish lips will bless me
When It’s Moonlight In Mayo

Her Irish eyes like beacons shine
All through the darkest night
I know their sweet love beams
Will always fill the world with light
The roses of her cheeks will lend
Enchantment to the scene
And when the shamrocks wear the dew
I’ll wed my sweet colleen
Chorus
