Thread Name: Lyr Req: Ride On (Jimmy MacCarthy)
Subject: RE: Irish Song; 'Ride On'
When I have sung this in the past. I have always assumed (rightly or wrongly)
that it was about the relationship between man and beast,
The horse being near to death. "The claw" being the man's hand.
That's what in my mind anyway when singing it..
