about

This is the 3rd full studio album McClure will release on Clubhouse Records, his 5th in total.

All the songs here were written during and inspired by McClure's time spent living in a small market town in the middle of rural England - but don't expect cute tales of quaint England, these songs tell stories of love, loss, life and death, just as you'd expect from a seasoned and well traveled Country Folk singer, Songs of characters met and conversations shared, of loves and regrets and of memories past; some happy, some not so... Themes of love, family, fighting the demons of the past whilst containing the trials of the present. It talks about trying to escape and trying to find my way home.

Track Name: Daddy Will You Hold My Hand?
capo on the 5th fret, play an 'A' chord...

Daddy will you hold my hand?
Daddy will you hold my hand?
I never felt like someone’s hero before
Like there was no-one else in this whole world in whom
She would safer trust her hand

1
It happened in a moment, it was all i could do to stand
She asked me as we stepped down to the road
My eyes met with a worried smile,
The sunlight caught her furrowed brow
Those steps too big for little legs to bend

Her tiny fingers ,oh so precious, nearly disappeared
She reached out her hand and took the heart of a man
When she said: Daddy will you hold my hand?

2
Should she ever get too old,
Should she think that it’s no longer hers to hold
I’ll wink at her and smile as we wander for a while
Her tiny hand lost in mine again

I never felt like someone’s hero before
Like there was no-one else in this whole world in whom
She would safer trust her hand
When she said: Daddy will you hold my hand?
