song for John and his sons

This song has always reminded me of John Whincester, but hoinstly I don't think Irish folk rock would be John's thing... But you never know. Fits now more now that he's dead...

If I Should Fall From Grace With God
By Shane MacGowan (1987)

If I should fall from grace with god
Where no doctor can relieve me
If I'm buried 'neath the sod
But the angels won't receive me

Let me go boys
Let me go boys
Let me go down in the mud
Where the rivers all run dry

This land was always ours
Was the proud land of our fathers
It belongs to us and them
Not to any of the others

Let them go boys
Let them go boys
Let them go down in the mud
Where the rivers all run dry

Bury me at sea
Where no murdered ghost can haunt me
If I rock upon the waves
No corpse can lie upon me

It's coming up three boys
Keeps coming up three boys
Let them go down in the mud
Where the rivers all run dry

If I should fall from grace with god
Where no doctor can relieve me
If I'm buried 'neath the sod
And still the angels won't receive me

Let me go boys
Let me go boys
Let me go down in the mud
Where the rivers all run dry

the presintation is fairly harsh really - it's followed up with a song called "the Turkish song of the Damned" and that one could be an ep all on it's own..

Um. If you have Windows Media Player, it should have an option of ripping the CD. I've never done it, so I can't tell you how, I'm sorry. :( And then you can just go to, um, sendspace.com, megaupload.com, yousendit.com, etc, and browse for the file, then hit "upload".

Ah so. Pills. Pills are fun.
