Can't find these lyrics in the database......lookin' for any clues or help.

They go something like:

"And we walked to the station in the rain. And we kissed him as we put him on the train. And we sang him a song, as ........long, though we knew we'd be seein him again...

.......must be on me way. So buy me some beer and whiskey..."

Chorus: ...............FAR AWAY! ...............FAR AWAY! ...............FAR AWAY!

It's called something like "Sally Mac or Mc___________ahan"

The title is actually "Sally MacLennane."
Here are the complete lyrics you're looking for:


Jimmy played harmonica in the pub where I was born.
He played it from the nighttime to the peaceful early morn.
He soothed the souls of psychos and the men who had the horn,
And they all looked very happy in the morning.

Now Jimmy didn't like his place in this world of ours
Where the elephant man broke strong men's necks, he'd had too many Powers,
So sad to see the grieving of the people that I'm leaving
And he took the road for God knows in the morning.

CHORUS: We walked him to the station in the rain.
We kissed him as we put him on the train.
And we sang him a song of times long gone,
Though we knew that we'd be seeing him again.
Sad to say I must be on my way
So buy me beer and whiskey 'cause I'm going far away
I'd like to think I'll be returning when I can
To the greatest little boozer and to Sally MacLennane

The years passed by the times had changed I grew to be a man
I learned to love the virtues of sweet Sally MacLennane
I took the jeers and drank the beers and I crawled back home at dawn
And ended up a barman in the morning.

I played the pump and took the hump and watered whiskey down
I talked of whores and horses to the men who drank the brown
I heard them say that jimmy's making money far away
Some people left for heaven without warning.


When Jimmy came back home, he was surprised that they were gone
He asked me all the details of the train that they went on
Some people they are scared to croak, but Jimmy drank until he choked
And took the road for heaven in the morning.
