Pete St John, Here's a song you don't hear enough of anymore,
Another fine example of the brilliant songwriting abilities of Pete St John.
 

I[C] took a train to[Am] Belfast, first[C] time for[G7] fifteen[C] years
To[C] see my friend McClory and en[F]joy the crack and [G7]beers
No[C]stalgia made me mellow, and the[G7] whiskey brought the tears
When the[C] barman said "Mc[Am]Clory; haven't[F] seen him[G7] round in[C] years.

Where[C] is he then I said[Am] to him, where[C] is that [G7]friend of[C] mine
That[C] hard man who once sang the sash in Sas[F]katchewan's foul[G7] clime
That[C] lagan lovin' shipyard son who[G7] took the plane with me
A[C]way from Belfast[Am] daydreams in the[F] days of [G7]sixty-[C]three.

There were times with that McClory, we could not see eye-to-eye
So we traded friendly insults, and we were not afraid to cry
An ill matched pair of Paddies and all we had was snow
Two Irishmen so different in a land we didn't know

(repeats first verse)

Sure he's been gone since eighty, said a docker drinking brew
On a promise to Autrailia there was no one left he knew
The guns and bombs fair broke his heart not knowing right from wrong
I went silent and to the station, there was more than McClory gone
