When Friday night comes around, well Terry’s only in to fighting
My ma would like a letter home but I’m too tired for writing.

Well it almost breaks my heart when I think of Josephine
I promised I’d be coming home with pockets full of green.

The only time I feel all right is when I’m into drinking
It eases off the pain a while and levels out my thinking.

I sometimes hear a fiddle play or maybe it’s a notion
I dream I see white horses dance on that other ocean.

The lyrics to From Clare to Here tell the story of four young Irishmen working in England who find themselves drifting further and further away from their roots in Co Clare in Ireland.
