Here we stray form the traditional again, but as Jon explains, “The words are about 60% Shakespeare 40% me. I know several Shakespearean directors who would consider this a hanging offence, but I figure if Shakespeare borrowed from the oral tradition, why shouldn’t we borrow it back again?” Those familiar with the Spiers & Boden Vagabonds CD, will know the song, but that jaunty treatment is turned somewhat on its head. Jon and his guitar give the song a melancholy that brings out the lyrical theme more obviously. For anyone needing a reference of the lyrics, you’ll find them here.
The buy links should now work properly. We had some problems with a duplicate track and everything needed to be updated, but I’ve just tested them and they are now OK!
