From Clare To Here Testo

Testo From Clare To Here

Evasione, Gianna Nannini patteggia un anno e due mesi
(By Ralph McTell)

Four who shared this room and
We were caught up in the crack
Sleeping late on Sundays
And we never got to Mass

[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 get's 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]
