Description

THE RONAN GALLAGHER BAND This song was written in my local train station after a chance meeting with a young man emigrating from Ireland to Australia. LONG GONE (Live) I'm standing on a platform One way ticket in my hand I'm leaving my home country For a distant land And I'll be gone Long, long gone And I'll be gone A long time gone The train pulls from the station And gathers up some speed I look out from my window And watch my life retreat And I'll be gone Long, long gone I'll be gone A long time gone Chorus There's nothing here left for me In this broken land The rich are getting richer And the poor Are broke and damned Damned, damned damned damned damned. I'll cross the big wide ocean I'll sail the big blue sea Where the work will take me That's where I have to be And I'll be gone Long, long gone I'll be gone A long time gone... Chorus
