No- this is definately not Rod Stewart, as I said- it's sort of sung-spoken in a Leonard Cohen fashion, and the singer's name isn't as well known, I don't think, as R. Stewart. He is in the over-forty yrs. old range... I really don't know anything more about him. Any information would help- as I would then have a point of reference. Right now all I've got is a couple lines and the melody.
Thanks for trying.
(No, it is definately not the dylan song)
Do they know pastor? I was a saint in the church. I fought for my children and I did good work. I fought for my lover and my self respect, and the nectar of life never left my tongue. (pause) Forever young...
(and so forth)
Thanks for reading.
