Rosie ADD:Take Me Home to Mayo/Ballad of Michael Gaughan (15) RE: Mayo 03 Feb 98


JFog, Here's some links that may help(or draw you further into the Web). Try: www.reelmusic.com and milton.mse.jhu.edu Also, here's my hometown (NE PA) version of TMHTMayo. Happy searching.

Take Me Home To Mayo REFRAIN: Take me home to Mayo// Across the Atlantic sea// Home to dear old Mayo// It's where I long to be// Take me home to Mayo// It's where my roots do lie// Home at last in Mayo// Beneath an Irish sky//

My name is ( * * * your name here * * *)// From Mayo my family came// My Ma and Da were born there// It's where I got my name// They left their dear old homeland// The Troubles and the strife// They settled in (* * *fill in your particulars*(4 beats)// To start a brand new life//

REFRAIN

My folks talked of their homeland// In their good old Irish way// Cultured in lore and music// Each and every day// I long to see my sire land// Trod o'er the soil they tilled// Home again to Mayo// Please, God, once more I will//

REFRAIN
