Right Side Up

Una delle canzoni più famose di Ralph McTell, un breve ed intenso racconto dell’emigrazione irlandese… La contea di Clare è nel centro-ovest dell’Irlanda, sull’oceano Atlantico.
There's four who share this room
And we work hard for the crack.
Sleeping late on Sundays
And we never got 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 gets further by the day
It's a long long way from Clare to here.

When Friday comes around
Terry's only into fighting.
My mom 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 gets further by the day
It's a long long way from Clare to here.

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 gets further by the day
It's a long long way from Clare to here.

The only time I feel alright
Is when I'm into drinking.
It can sort of ease the pain of it
And it levels out my thinking.

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