My ma would like a letter home, but I'm too tired for writing
And it's a long way from Clare to here
It's a long way from Clare from here
It's a long, long way, gets further by the day
It's a long, long way from Clare to here

It almost breaks my heart when I think of my family
I told them I'd be coming home with my pockets full of greens

And it's a long way from Clare to here
It's a long way from Clare from here
It's a long, long way, gets further by the day
It's a long, long way from Clare to here

    F            G                C   -    G    C
The only time I feel all right is when I'm into drinking
      F                  G               C    -   G/B     Am   -   Am/G
It can sort of ease the pain of it and it levels out my thinking

And it's a long way from Clare to here
It's a long way from Clare from here
It's a long, long way, gets further by the day
It's a long, long way from Clare to here

I sometimes hear the fiddles play; maybe it's just a notion
I dream I see white horses dance upon that other ocean

And it's a long way from Clare to here
It's a long way from Clare from here
It's a long, long way, gets further by the day
It's a long, long way from Clare to here
It's a long, long way, gets further by the day
It's a long, long way from Clare to here
It's a long, long way from Clare to here
[Ending: Fmaj9  G  Am(9).]
