John OSh Lyr Req: Ride On (Jimmy MacCarthy) (81* d) RE: Irish Song; 'Ride On' 30 Jun 99

I always thought it was about the leaving of a lover or relationship...possibly noble and commoner

One is riding the finest horse, skilled rider (nobility)

and the other could never go with them ever though they wanted.

And the "claw along my gut" is, I believe, in reference to "so long" sex.

Just my opinion.
