Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Ride On (Jimmy MacCarthy)
"It's about the IRA" I'd heard that before too but earlier in this thread there is a post which quotes a passage from the song's creator in which he states it is simply a song about parting! People will see meanings in songs that they want to see but it doesn't mean that the composer saw the same thing.
