Lyrics & Information

This is the first track from the debut album of their self-titled Thin Lizzy album. Released in 1971, this is one of my most favourites. Phil's lyrics chart life beautifully, showing how the love of his life brings all the best memories of his existence out. Bell's gentle guitar riffs are very heartwarming, and it's hard not to get a shiver up your spine while you listen to this one.

Lyrics :-

The Friendly Ranger paused
And scooping the bowl of beans
Spreading them like stars
Falling like justice on different scenes

I'm damned,
Indeed comrade,
I'm being bombed
And all the people's faces turned strawberry-blonde

By the morning gate the Friendly Ranger waits
For the sun making sure it's not late
Just in time, No need to fear, Well just in case
And all the people are happy for another year

And in the evening shade he climbs upon the sun
Getting it's glow, he goes on
Singing this song

To feel the goodness
Glowing inside
To walk down a street with my arms about your hips
Side by side

To play with a sad eyed child until he smiles
To look at a starry sky at night
Realize the miles

To see the sun-set behind the steeple
Clontarf Castle
No King, Queen or Knightly people

A coal fire
And it's pouring rain
To wave good-bye to a very good friend
Never meet again

Little thoughts,
Little memories
Of you to me

[Outro solo & end]
