From Clare to here

Oh! there's four who share the room as we work hard for the crack
And getting up late on Sunday I never get to Mass.

It's a long, long way from Clare to here
It's a long, long way from Clare to here
Oh it's along, long way, it gets further day by day
It's a long, long way from Clare to here

When Friday night comes around and  he's only in the fighting
My ma would like a letter home but I'm too tired for writing

It's a long....

And the only time I feel alright is when I'm into drinking
It eases off the pain a bit and levels out my thinking

It's a long....

Well it almost breaks my heart when I think of Josephine
I promised I'd be coming back with pockets full of green

It's a long....

I dream I hear a piper play maybe it's a notion
I dream I see white horses dance upon that other ocean

It's a long...

lyrics by Ralph McTell
