Thread Name: Lyr Req: Absent Friends (Keith Hancock)
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Help with a Vin Garbutt song.
Excellent song. I, like Kitty, first heard it from Vin, but since then have sveral times heard Keith Hancock sing it, and his is for me without doubt the definitive version. I prefer the order of the verses in Keith's version, too.
It almost seems pedantic to mention this, but I'm sure he said he'd written it following the death of his brother, not his father.
