RIDE ON

Latest update on 01/09/2009

Artist: Christy Moore
Author: Jim MacCarthy
Label: Green Linnet
Year: 1984

On the album Ride On. Jim's first big song. He also wrote No Frontiers (Mary Black) and Lisdoonvarna (Christy Moore). Although he might have become a top jockey (riding Derby winners Sir Ivor and Nijinsky in the Vincent O'Brien stable in Co. Tipperary), Ride On is not about a horse. It's about the girl he couldn't keep pace with since she joined the IRA. Ride On became the title of his autobiography.
