Homeplace in Mayo, Phil Mack, Song from Co. Mayo

Around Clew Bay waters in County Mayo

you meet friendly people wherever you go

So I must confess, way down in the west

Is my homeplace in Mayo the place I love best

You may go to your cities for fortune and fame

Come back to Mayo for fishing and game

If there's need for rest, come back to the west

To your homeplace in Mayo the place I love best

Be it Knock, Crossmolina or old Newport town

Castlebar, Westport both famed and renowned

Achill, Belmullet, where fond memories grow

Come back to your homeplace in County Mayo

You may go to your cities for fortune and fame

Come back to Mayo for fishing and game

If there's need for rest, come back to the west

To your homeplace in Mayo the place I love best

Living in Dublin, Cork or Tralee

Working in Limerick or far overseas

Cead Mile Failte is waiting you see

When you visit your friends in Mayo by the sea

You may go to your cities for fortune and fame

Come back to Mayo for fishing and game

If there's need for rest, come back to the west

To your homeplace in Mayo the place I love best
