Thread Name: Lyr Req: Ride On (Jimmy MacCarthy)
Subject: RE: Irish Song; 'Ride On'
Refreshed from the "Name this song" thread.

If its any help to know Jimmy MacCarthy is a former jockey. One of his albums of his own songs is called "The song of the Singing Horseman."

I've been told that Jimmy wrote "run the claw along my gut". The claw being an implement used in grooming horses. Don't know if this helps the interpretation any.
