Clare to here

Lyrics

There’s four of us share the room, we work hard for the brass
And getting up late on Sunday, I never get to mass

Chorus
It’s a long, long way from Clare to here
It’s a long, long way from Clare to here
It’s a long, long way, it gets further day by day
It’s a long, long way from Clare to here

When Friday night comes around and Eddy’s only in the 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 Josephine
I promised I’d be coming back with pockets full of green
Chorus

I dream I hear a piper play, maybe it’s emotion
I dream I see white horses dance on that other ocean
Chorus
