“Too Far From Home” from Blue Guitars - Album Number Nine - Celtic & Irish Blues
Blue Guitars is a Blues album released by Chris Rea on October 14, 2005 consisting of eleven CDs, one DVD and a full colour book, including paintings by the artist, liner notes and song lyrics. The album is an ambitious project with the 137 songs recorded over the course of 1½ years with a work schedule - according to Chris Rea himself - of twelve hours a day, seven days a week. Initially the project was inspired by Bill Wyman's "Blues Odyssey" and can be called an "odyssey" in its own right, for depicting a journey through the various epochs of Blues Music, starting at its African origins and finishing with modern-time Blues from the 60s and 70s. Subsequently the eleven CDs are titled the following: "Beginnings", "Country Blues", "Louisiana & New Orleans", "Electric Memphis Blues", "Texas Blues", "Chicago Blues", "Blues Ballads", "Gospel Soul Blues & Motown", "Celtic & Irish Blues", "Latin Blues" and "60s & 70s".
You may find me Wherever you go From New York City Way out to Chicago I'm the son of a restless sailor Blessed with Irish bones Sometimes I feel like I'm too far from home
I will sing And I will dance for you Every land you go You will always see There'll be big stout glasses Full to the white top There'll be stories And there'll be me
Across the wild sea I've travelled far Born to move on Born to roam But lately I've been feeling Like I'm too far from home
Whatever happened To the girl I loved Oh I ask forgiveness To the one above There was a day I could have made it real fine Something went wrong I forget Too far down that line
Across the wild sea Too far along down along that line Across the wild sea Born to roam But lately I've been feeling Like I'm too far from home.
