Thank you for posting this lovely rendition of a great song Glenn.
The first time I heard this song was at a small club in Chicago, winter of 1976. I think the performers name was Ashley Abrhamson. Brought back so many wonderful memories. Thank you.

Hi Glenn,
Stellar job on one of my favorite tunes. I saw McTell play this in London a few years back, and the whole Palladium crowd sang along. Itís one of my favorite concert memories; Iíd gone to see Steeleye Spanís Christmas show, and had no idea they had Ralph hidden backstage for a truly special guest appearance.

I play this one, tooóand itís also because an old friend brought it to me.

Cheers
Jimmy

Hi Glenn

I think your accent is fine with the song too and I enjoyed listening to it

This song was a big hit here in 1974 reaching No2 in the 'pop' charts including over the Xmas period (No 6 at Xmas) and has remained very popular indeed hence all of the audience singing along with it. He made many appearances on TV as well singing this.

Hi Phil,

Interesting about this song becoming a hit in 1974 in the UK. I don't think I knew that. So this explains a lot about why so many people can sing along on the chorus with Ralph McTell -- that whole scene of people totally absorbed in this song and singing along, it's so amazing to watch! I think it really does show that music reaches some place inside us in a way that breaks down barriers. We might all be fighting about politics, but bring us all together for a song like this, and then everyone who dives in to sing can experience this same transcendent moment.

Thanks so much for your comments, Phil!

- Glenn

Glenn, great job on that song. As a boy, every summer, I stayed with my aunt and uncle in Montauk Point NY. My uncle Ken, was, and still is, a big fan of Ralph McTell, and I heard a lot of his songs growing up as a child. So your version of this song brought back many good memories!

Play on!
