“Oh, there’s four who share this room
as we work hard for the crack
and sleeping late on Sunday
I never get to Mass.

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 grows further by the day
it’s a long, way from Clare to here

When Friday comes around
Terry’s only into fighting
my ma would like a letter home
but I’m too tired for writing

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 grows further by the day
it’s a long, way from Clare to here

Well it almost breaks my heart
when I think of Josephine
I told her I’d be coming home
with my pockets full of green


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 grows further by the day
it’s a long, way from Clare to here

And the only time I feel alright
is when I’m into drinking
it sort of eases the pain a bit
and levels out my thinking

It’s a long, long way from Clare to here
it’s a long, way from Clare to here
it’s a long, long way
it grows further by the day
it’s a long, way from Clare to here

I sometimes hear a fiddle play
or maybe it’s a notion
I dream I see white horses
dance upon that other ocean

It’s a long, long way from Clare to here
it’s a long, way from Clare to here
it’s a long, long way
it grows further by the day
it’s a long, long way from Clare to here

It’s a long, long way from Clare to here”.
