Always wanted to record this haunting song, so forced myself last evening to at least sing it once on Guitar. Went off-scale at few places. But who could dare sing Hemant Da’s songs really!
One of my favorite folk songs that I used to listen to quite a lot back in early 2000s during college. The song was written by American folk singer-songwriter Tom Paxton in the early 1960s. This is my attempt at Chad Mitchell Trio’s (another folk trio from 60s) rendition. Peace~
