Moonlight In Mayo Song Lyrics And Guitar Chords. Written by Seamus Kavanagh and recorded by Derek McCormack. The guitar chords were found over at the Mudcat Cafe http://www.mudcat.org/thread.cfm?threadid=17597&messages=5 but I have taken out some chords to make the song easier to play. The full chords are at the bottom of the page. The video is of the late and great Derek McCormack who used to play with The Barleycorn from 1987-1985, before Barleycorn Derek was with Dermot O'Brien doing the show band scene. Derek also played bass with The Furey Brothers And Davie Arthur and also with Danial O'Donnell. Derek passed away 30 January 2005 in America.

[G]It's just a [C]year ago[G] today
I [C]left old [G]Erin's[C] Isle
[C]My heart was [Am]throbbing in the[G] soft light
[Am]Of my [D7]colleen's [G]smile[G7]
In [C]all my [G]dreams I [C]seem to [G]hear
Her[C] sweet voice[G] soft and [C]low
I [C]know she's[Am] waiting where we[G] said
Good[Am]bye in [D7]old Ma[G]yo


Chorus
For[C] two Irish [F]eyes are [C]shining
And[C] an Irish [F]heart is [C]pining
Where I kissed her [F]and caressed [C]her
In the [Em]gloaming [Dm]long ag[G]o
Loving[C] Irish [F]arms will [C]press me
And true Irish love [F]caress me
And [C]sweet [F]Irish [C]lips will [A7]bless me
When It's [D7]Moonlight [G7]In May[C]o


Her Irish eyes like beacons shine
All through the darkest night
I know their sweet love beams
Will always fill the world with light
The roses of her cheeks will lend
Enchantment to the scene
And when the shamrocks wear the dew
I'll wed my sweet colleen
