Here are few words from Ricky Warwick on the song and the lyric vid -
“I am delighted to have my good friend and amazingly talented Belfast artist Terry Bradley contribute his art to this video, which I feel sums up the lyrical content brilliantly.
This little story below inspired the song along with situations my friends, myself and history has told over the years of the wandering Irish and anyone who is far away from home and themselves !!!
The picture of the 2 gentlemen in the very daper 1930 suits in the chorus are my Grandfather and Great Grandfather, the picture of the young man in the soldier’ s uniform is also my Great Grandfather who at 14 years ( he lied about his age, you had to be 16 to fight with your parents approval, 18 if not ! ) of age ran away from Belfast to enlist in the British army, to fight in the First World War he got as far as Southampton, where he got seriously ill with pleurisy and was hospitalized and when they found out he was only 14 sent him back home to Belfast, he enlisted again in 1918 when he was 17 but by then the war was all but over!!!”
