Boys From the County Mayo

Irish Song Lyrics - Boys From the County Mayo

Far away from the land of the shamrock and heather
in search of our living as exiles we roam
and whenever we chance to assemble togeter
I think of the place where I once had a home

The days of my childhood it's now I regret them
we carry their vision wherever we go
the friends of my youth I will never forget them
they too are exiles from the County Mayo

CHORUS sorry about the spellings!
Ballinrobe to Killala from Swinford to Balla
Newport and Cong and down Castlebar
Ballyhaunis, Belmullet, Tourmakeady, God love it
from the whole land whose great men are known near and far

So boys cling together in all kinds of weather
'Don't show the white feather' wherever you go
be like a brother and help one another
like the true hearted men from the County Mayo
