Hi all,

This request came to me indirectly via NEFFA. Can anyone help this fellow figure out what this song is?

"Allan (sp?) at Cheapo records suggested I network the NEFFA group (I am a some-time contra dancer anyway) for the name of song/singer/full lyrics/ or most dreamy of all, a recording of a song I cannot find, but remember from 35 years ago... It was folky, opened with a harmonica sounding like a passing train (think doppler effect), then a male singer and a different (?) male reading the lyrics in russian (?)... the lyrics I have are below. It starts:

I was a child
A Wild Child

Green as grass and running through each day
How time goes by
How time does tell
Do we hardly know each other
Do we know each other well?


----
I was a Pete Seeger fan so I thought it was him, but can't find it under his lists... I also believe it only came out on a 45-sized vinyl.

THANKS for ANY leads... I am seeking a full recording of it, but I will take any suggestions!"

My first thoughts are "I am a child" performed by Buffalo Springfield and written by Neil Young. It opens with harmonica.
