My Wide Irish Roads


This song is a true story about a trip to Ireland I took with a bandmate in the ‘80s.  We were on a steep switchback road in the north of the Republic of Ireland, and the roads were quite a bit narrower than we were used to — we are quite spoiled in many ways in the United States.  My bandmate John kept yelling for me to stop, adding to my terror, so he could snap pictures.  When we finally made it to the highway (itself a narrow road) I was mightily relieved!


When we got home I penned this to the tune of "My Wild Irish Rose” and it became a staple of the band’s repertoire. I still sing it when I do live shows.  It is on my album, "The Fun Stuff".
