Yep that's the one Joe, I've known it for years, and recently decided to revive it for my repertoire, [I say that as if I sung for a living!] anyway I've always loved the chord progression on it, and the little instrumental run between verses.
It reminds me of The Bleacher Lass o' Kelvinhaugh, which is another one of the 'tears off false whiskers, and reveals himself as long lost lover' songs.'
