About If I Should Fall From Grace With God

"If I Should Fall from Grace with God" was a single released by The Pogues in February 1988, from the album of the same name If I Should Fall from Grace with God (released in January 1988). It followed the band's Christmas classic, "Fairytale of New York", but did not enjoy the same widespread success, stalling at Number 58 in the UK singles Chart. The video for the single was filmed at a live show. An earlier recording of the song, performed at a slower tempo, appeared on the Straight to Hell soundtrack in 1987. The faster-paced 1988 recording found on the subsequent single release was heard beginning October, 2010 on U. S. commercials for the Subaru Forester, featuring a woman shuttling around hockey-playing children, while the lyrics of the first two verses (which constitute the song's main chorus) are heard prominently for the duration of the advertisement.

If I should fall from grace with god
Where no doctor can relieve me
If I'm buried 'neath the sod
But the angels won't receive me

Let me go, boys
Let me go, boys
Let me go down in the mud
Where the rivers all run dry

This land was always ours
Was the proud land of our fathers
It belongs to us and them
Not to any of the others

Let them go, boys
Let them go, boys
Let them go down in the mud
Where the rivers all run dry

Bury me at sea
Where no murdered ghost can haunt me
If I rock upon the waves
Then no corpse can lie upon me

It's coming up threes, boys
Keeps coming up threes, boys
Let them go down in the mud
Where the rivers all run dry

If I should fall from grace with god
Where no doctor can relieve me
If I'm buried 'neath the sod
But the angels won't receive me

Let me go, boys
Let me go, boys
Let me go down in the mud
Where the rivers all run dry

The Pogues

The Pogues are a Celtic punk band from London, formed in 1982 and fronted by Shane MacGowan. The band reached international prominence in the 1980s and early 1990s. MacGowan left the band in 1991 due to drinking problems but the band continued first with Joe Strummer and then with Spider Stacy on vocals before breaking up in 1996. The band reformed in 2001, and has been playing regularly ever since, most notably on the US East Coast around St Patrick's Day and across the UK and Ireland every December. The group has yet to record any new music and, according to Spider Stacy on Pogues.com, has no inclination to do so. more »
