Hal Ketchum

PAST THE POINT OF RESCUE
(Mick Hanly)

Last night I dreamed you were back again
Larger than life again, holding me tight again
Placing those same kisses on my brow
Sweeter than ever now, lord I remember how
Couldn't get enough of kissing, do you know how much you're missing
No you don't, but I do

The days like a slow train trickle by
And even the words that I write refuse to fly
All I can hear is your song haunting me
Can't get the melody out of my head, you see
Distractions are amusing, do you know how much you're losing
No you don't, but I do

But I do, and I wonder if I'm past the point of rescue
Is no word from you at all the best that you can do
I never meant to push or shove you, do you know how much I love you
No you don't, but I do

I swore I'd never fall like this again
Fools like me never win, came to my knees again
Can't close the door on likely hood
Things might be just as good, I always believed they would
Gotta let your love invite me, baby do you think it might be
No you don't, but I do

But I do, and I wonder if I'm past the point of rescue
Is no word from you at all the best that you can do
I never meant to push or shove you, do you know how much I love you
No you don't, but I do

But I do, and I wonder if I'm past the point of rescue
Is no word from you at all the best that you can do
I never meant to push or shove you, do you know how much I love you
No you don't, but I do
I know you don't, but I do
I know you don't, but I do

At the moment I am listening to Mick Hanley live gees he sounds a bit like Christy Moore. i think the lead guitarist might be a Phil Donnelly. The song is 'past the point of Rescue'did he write this?
And can anyone help me with chords

Mick has written many fine songs including Past the Point of Rescue. His early recordings were more in the folk idiom but has switched to a more country style singing mainly self-written material for many years now. He was also a member of Moving Hearts for a while in the early 80s.

Philip Donnelly is an excellent guitarist born in Dublin and is back living in Ireland after spending some years in the US where he worked with people like Donovan, John Prine and the Everleys.

Also "Past the Point of Rescue" was recorded by Hal Ketchum and has become Mick's pension.

Mick also had a band in the '80s called Rusty Old Halo, whose CD of the same name is worth a listen if you can find it anywhere.

Remember hating Hal Ketchem's version as I was a DJ for a small country radio station in the earky 80s. Didn't hear Mick Hanley's version until many years later and still think of it as the most tastefully produced song I've ever heard. Everthing, but the kitchen sink and yet not a note out of place...absolutely brill.

Have it on a mix w/Mary Black, Maura O'Connell, Planxty, Patrick Street, Loreena McKennit, Philomeana Bagley, Andy M. Stewart, Paul Brady, Kornog, Robbie O'Connell, Mary Coughlin, Something Happens, Altan, Andy Devine, etc. and it's still my 'go to' cd after about 15 years. Never gets old.
