Oh, the Green and Red of Mayo
I can see it still
Its soft and craggy bog lands
Its tall majestic hills
Where the ocean kisses Ireland
And the waves caress its shore
Oh, the feeling it came over me
To stay forever more
Forever more

From its rolling coastal waters
I can see Croagh Patrick's peak
Where one Sunday every summer
The pilgrims climb the reek
Where Saint Patrick in his solitude
Looks down across Clew Bay
And with the ringing of his bell
Calls the faithful there to pray
There to pray

Oh, take me to Clare Island
The home of Granuaile
Its waters harbor fishes
From the herring to the whale
But now I must depart it
And reality is plain
May the time now pass us slowly
Before I set sail again
Set sail again

Oh, the Green and Red of Mayo
I can see it still
Its soft and craggy bog lands
Its tall majestic hills
Where the ocean kisses Ireland
And the waves caress its shore
Oh, the feeling it came over me
To stay forever more
Forever more

Oh the Green and Red of Mayo...
