from clare to here lyrics – nanci griffith

(ralph mctell)

four who shared this room and we caught up in the craic
sleeping late on sundays and we never got to m*ss

chorus
it’s a long way from clare to here
it’s a long way from clare to here
it’s a long, long way
it gets further by the day
it’s a long, long way from clare to here

when friday comes around we’re only into fighting
my ma would like a letter home but i’m too tired for writing

chorus

it almost breaks my heart when i think of my family
i told them i’d be coming home with my pockets full of green

chorus

the only time i feel alright is when i’m into drinking
it can sort of ease the pain of it and it levels out my thinking

chorus

i sometimes hear the fiddles play, maybe it’s just a notion
i dream i see white horses dance upon that other ocean

chorus
