I had never heard this tune until I stumbled across "Cry Cry Cry", the recently released collaboration among Dar Williams, Lucy Kaplansky and Richard Shindell. What an incredible song! I get a lump in my throat at every listening. The lyrics happen to be included in the CD insert, which, along with the other great tunes is another reason to go out and buy it. Highly recommended.
By the way, I'm new to this list, having just found it. Great resource with obviously well informed members.
