Oh the green and red of Mayo
I can see it still
It's soft and craggy boglands
It's tall majestic hills
Where the ocean kisses Ireland
and the waves caress its shore
Oh the feelin' it came over me
Stay forever more, forever more

From its rollin' coastal waters
I can see Croagh Patrick's peak
Where one Sunday every summer
The Pilgrims climb the reek
Where Saint Patrick in its solitude
Looks down across Clew Bay
With the ringin' of his bell
Call the faithful there to pray, there to pray

Oh take me Clare Island
The home of Granuaile
It's waters harbor fishes
from the herring to the whale
And now I must depart
and reality is plain
May time not pass so slowly
Before I set sail again, set sail again

Oh the green and red of Mayo
I can see it still
It's soft and craggy boglands
It's tall majestic hills
Where the ocean kisses Ireland
and the waves caress its shore
Oh the feelin' it came over me
Stay forever more, forever more
Stay forever more

Oh the green and red of Mayo
Oh the green and red of Mayo
Oh the green and red of Mayo
Oh the green and red of Mayo
