From Clare To Here Lyrics Guitar Chords And Sheet music by Ralph McTell, made famous by The Furey Brothers And Davie Arthur. It tells the story of Irish lads working on the building sites in England and dreaming of being back home in County Clare. It also deals with what most Irish men do when working away from home , and that's drinking and fighting and having the craic, sure what else would a fella be doing.  Anyway I use a capo when I'm playing this one, it's on the second fret so I'm in the key of A. I have also included the mandolin / banjo tab.

Oh [G]here's four who share this [D]room as we [G]work hard for the [D]craic
 And [G]getting up late on [D]Sundays I [G]never get to [D]Mass
It's a [Am]long way from Clare to [G]here
It's a [Am]long way from Clare to [Em]here
Oh[G]It's a long, long [D]way, it grows [G]further by the [D]day
It's a [Am]long way from Clare to [G]here
When Friday comes around he's only into fighting
My ma would like a letter home but I'm too tired for writing
It almost breaks my heart when I think of Josephine
I promised her I'd be coming home with my pockets full of green
And the only time I feel alright is when I'm into drinking
It  eases off the pain of it and levels out my thinking
I dream I hear a piper playing 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.
