Take Me Home To Mayo lyrics and chords Written by Seamus Robinson Seamus has written some great songs over the years ncluding-The Provie Birdie-City Of Dreams-Fianna Boy Guiseppe Conlon,to name but a few. This song is a tribute to Michael Gaughan who  was twenty four when he died on hunger strike after sixty four days. The guitar chords are in the key of G Major and it was recorded by The Dublin City Ramblers.
 

Take[G] me home to mayo,across the Irish[D] sea,
Home to dear old Mayo where[D7] once I roamed so[G] free,
Take me home to Mayo,and let my body[C] lie,
Home at last in[G] Mayo,[D]beneath an[D7] Irish[G] sky.
[2]
My name is Michael Gaughin,from Ballina I came,
I saw my country suffering,and swore to break the chains,
I raised the flag in England,prepared to fight or die,
Far away from Mayo,beneath an Irish sky.
[3]
My body cold and hungry,in Parkhurst jail I lie,
For the loving of my country,on hunger strike I die,
I have just one last longing,I pray you'll not deny,
Bury me in Mayo,beneath an Irish sky.
