The train to Sligo

Sitting on the train to Sligo going from Rainshine to Sunshine, I thought of this beautiful song written by Thom Moore.

the Scholar

The train to Sligo moves too slow
As it takes her from the school below
She wants to be there faster than
The train to Sligo ever can
She wonders where the passing goes
Creeping by her window; my oh my
Its getting further than it ever has before.

Eyes wide as silver dollars
Can’t think why but she’s a scholar
Oh Lord, it takes so long to learn
Whats right from what is wrong
School books and fancy collars
Can’t think why but she’s a scholar
Hold on, her daddy tells her
Learn to sing your song

The train from Sligo moves to Fast
Holidays are gone at last
Winter days are here again
Please promise me you’ll write to me then
It’s too long weeks till I get home
I can’t help feeling so alone
If someone doesn’t right to me soon
I’ll simply fade away
