"From Clare to Here" is a ballad about Irish emigration written by Ralph McTell. It has also been recorded by The Furey Brothers & Davey Arthur on the 1977 album Emigrant; by Nanci Griffith and Pete Cummins on the 1993 album Other Voices, Other Rooms; and as a b-side by Duke Special on the 2006 single Last Night I Nearly Died. It was also recorded by The Punters in 2001 on their album "Certified Traditional Music".

McTell's original version appears on his 1976 album Right Side Up. In the sleevenotes of the remaster, he wryly describes it as his "second most covered song".
