Take Me Home To Mayo

Take me home to Mayo, across the Irish sea
Home to dear old Mayo, where once I roamed so free
Take me home to Mayo, and let my body lie
Home at last in Mayo, beneath the Irish sky.

My name is Michael Gaughan, from Ballina I came
I saw my people sufferin' and I swore to break their chains
I took the boat to England, prepared to fight or die
Far away from Mayo, beneath an Irish sky.

My body cold and hungry, in Parkhurst Jail I lie
For the loving of my country, on hunger strike I'll die
I have just one last longing, I pray you'll not deny
Take my body home to Mayo, beneath the Irish sky.
