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
The [F]only time I f[G]eel all right is [C]when[-] I'm [G]into [C]drinking
It can[F] sort of ease the p[G]ain of it and it[C] leve[-]ls o[G/B]ut my th[Am]inkin[-]g[Am/G]
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
