Written by Tom Paxton. I been playing this song since about 1966 I think. It was one of those tunes that every folk singer did.

I have my humidity up to about 60% in the studio and the acoustic instruments just feel and sound sooo good. \:\)

I think Lightfoot was the first cover I heard. Nice feel Andy.

Pretty humid in your shop. I remember you like it that way.

Check your PMs.

Beautiful take on an old gem Andy. Lovely arrangement and your voice has never sounded better. You have a baritone voice Danny Marks can only dream of. That song has been a regular go-to for me since then. It think it was Paxton's version that I heard. I also play Bottle of Wine, Where I'm Bound and Ramblin Boy.

Thanks lads.

That started out just as an exercise in recording the acoustic guitars. The Martin in open position and the Collings capoed at the 7th fret. Both fingerpicked (basically Travis picking I guess).

I have always liked this song (my first exposure was from PPM). Lovely. Thanks for doing it.
