Day 12: “If I Should Fall from Grace to God” – The Pogues. Irish sound

!!!ITALIANO!!!

 Today’s song takes us straight to Ireland, although this band was born in Kings Cross, London, in 1982. With their mixture of Irish traditional sound and modern punk influence, The Pogues immediately obtained great success with their first two albums, which were nevertheless followed by a period of decline, especially due to the difficult personality of its lead singer and main composer Shane McGowan. This song is from the 1982 homonymous album, which represented a good return for this band, whose carrer has always met ups and downs.

It is hard to stay still with such an amzing rhythm…

Lyrics
 
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 meLet me go, boys
Let me go, boys
Let me go down in the mud
Where the rivers all run dryThis 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
Then 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
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
