When It's Moonlight In Mayo
(Two Irish Eyes Are Shining)
Music by Percy Wenrich
Words by Jack Mahoney


It's just a year a-go to-day
I left old Er-in's Isle,
My heart was throb-bing
in the sun-light of
my col-leen's smile;

In all my dreams I hear
her sweet voice call-ing soft and low,
I know she's wait-ing where
we said "good-bye" in old Ma-yo.

Now two I-rish eyes are shin-ing,
And an I-rish heart is pin-ing,
Where I kissed her and ca-ressed
her In the gloam-ing, long a-go,

Lov-ing I-rish arms will press me,
With true I-rish love car-ess me,
And sweet I-rish lips will bless me,
When it's Moon-light in- Ma-yo.

Her I-rish eyes like bea-cons shine
on thro' the dark-est night,
I know their sweet love beams
will al-ways fill the world with light;

The ros-es on her cheeks will
lend en-chant-ment to the scene,
And when the sham-rocks wed the dew,
I'll wed my sweet col-leen.

Now two I-rish eyes are shin-ing,
And an I-rish heart is pin-ing,
Where I kissed her and ca-ressed
her In the gloam-ing, long a-go,

Lov-ing I-rish arms will press me,
With true I-rish love car-ess me,
And sweet I-rish lips will bless me,
When it's Moon-light in- Ma-yo.
