Thanks for commenting.

I never heard Lucy Simpson sing this song and was quoting from the Boarding Party CD notes with regard to Tom McHenry singing "story" and Lucy singing "blessing."

Do you know Lucy Simpson personally or have you heard a recording of hers? It's possible that she may have made more notes about this song that would be of interest.
