Running to 4 minutes 19 seconds, Phil co-wrote this with bass player Jimmy Bain; the old town in question is clearly Dublin, and the song is just as clearly autobiographical to some degree, and intensely personal. A nice, uptempo fairly commercial track, although far too poppy
ever to be recorded by Thin Lizzy. An inevitable single, it was recorded at Good Earth Studios, London, produced by Phil and Kit Woolven, and released on the Vertigo label backed by "Beat Of The Drum".
It was also recorded by The Corrs, who obviously couldn't do it justice, even with an orchestral arrangement.
