      D           Bm          G            F#m
Far away from the land of the Shamrock and heather
   D           Bm         E7        A7
In search of a living, as exiles we roam
         D       Bm        G         F#m
But when ever we chance to assemble together
   D            Bm            A7
We think of the land where we once had a (D)home:
      D           Bm          G            F#m
But these homes are de stroyed and our soil confis cated
   D           Bm         E7        A7
The hand of the tyrant brought plunder and woe;
      D           Bm          G            F#m
The fires are now quenched and our hearts desolated
      D           Bm          A          D
In our once happy homes in the County Ma yo

      D           Bm          G            F#m
Long years have now passed since with hearts full of sorrow
   D           Bm         E7        A7
The land of the Shamrock we left far behind;
      D           Bm          G            F#m
But how we would like to go back there tomorrow;
   D           Bm         E7        A7
To the scenes of our youth, which we still bear in mind;
      D           Bm          G            F#m
The days of our childhood, it's now we recall them
   D           Bm         E7        A7
They cling to our vision wherever we go;
      D           Bm          G            F#m
And the friends of our youth we will never for get them
      D           Bm          A          D
They too are exiled from the County Mayo

      D           Bm          G            F#m
From historic Killala, from Swinford to Calla
   D           Bm         E7        A7
Ballyhaunis and Westport and old Castle bar
      D           Bm          G            F#m
Kiltimagh and Claremorris, Belmullet and Erris
      D           Bm          A          D
Kilkelly and Knock that is famed near and far;
      D           Bm          G            F#m
From Balla, Ballinrobe, Ballina and Bohola
   D           Bm         E7        A7
Keeloges and Foxford a few miles below
      D           Bm          G            F#m
Newport and Cong with old Straide and Manulla
      D           Bm          A          D
Charlestown too, in the County Mayo

      D           Bm          G            F#m
Then on with the cause 'till our aim is accomplished
   D           Bm         E7        A7
Those who would fault us are cowardly and mean
      D           Bm          G            F#m
So stand in the fight 'till the tyrant is vanquished
      D           Bm          A          D
Expelled from our dear little Island of Green
      D           Bm          G            F#m
With the foes of our land we have fought a long battle
   D           Bm         E7        A7
Soon they will get their last death-dealing blow
      D           Bm          G            F#m
When old Nick has received them, their brains he will rattle
      D           Bm          A          D
For the wrongs they have done to the County Mayo

      D           Bm          G            F#m
So boys pull together in all kinds of weather
   D           Bm         E7        A7
Don't show the white feather wherever you go
      D           Bm          G            F#m
Act each like a brother and help one another
      D           Bm          A          D
Like true hearted men from the County Mayo
