DT Lyrics:





Subject: Who sings
From: GUEST,Ms. Dos
Date: 06 Jul 02 - 11:23 PM

Starts with:

You say that you're going/but you're already gone
I can tell by/the look in your eyes;
For just 3 days apart/we're preparing ourselves
For the moment/we say our goodbyes.

[Chorus] So let me down/easy and slow
Kiss me once/'fore you leave don't ya know
I've spent years/on my own


Never felt so alone/as I do now, whenever you go. ...
I keep thinking Robin & Linda Williams but if that's the case, I must have the title wrong as I can't find it! It's a duet, for sure, done in 3/4 time. Help! TIA

Sorry I messed up the title the first time around...I thought I was being asked to create a new discussion (in general) not just post my question. Hmmm...John from Hull (Mass., I take it? I'm from JP originally)...this was a male/female duet, I heard and taped it from an NPR show a million years ago, ran across it and want to track down the album. I've thought of Robin & Linda Williams (the male sounds a lot like him), Richard & Linda Thompson and Clive Gregson and Christine Collister. It's a bit twangy, like a smooth bluegrass or more sophisticated "folk" song. Well, got my fingers crossed! Thanks for trying to help (and reminding me of some other good tunes! )

Nothing with that title, or opening phrase, on Google, sorry.

Lots of hits for Let me down easy though- several different songs, including the lovely one by Ralph McTell.

Like many good songs, this one is by Si Kahn. It may have been recorded by others, but it can be found on Si's 1984 record, "Unfinished Portraits." The title is "Easy and Slow," not to be confused with the bawdy song of the same title.

My favorite verse is:

"Part of my spirit goes traveling with you

To see that you're never alone

Part of your spirit stays right here with me

And watches me till you come home...."

It's a very good song, which I've loved for many a year.

I have been trying to find who sings this song as well. The young woman who sings the song was being interviewed on NPR I believe saturday Feb 12th. I think it was an evening show because I was on my way home from work.

Jessica Lea Mayfield was interviewed on Weekend Edition on Feb. 12, 2011. There's no mention of this song on that page, but I haven't listened to the interview...

Becky in Tucson. You are most certainly right. I have just been listening to the Ralph McTell song "Let Me Down Easy" and The words let me down slow appear in the second line of the chorus, not the first.
Thought I knew what I was talking about, but obviously I did not!
Sorry for any confusion.
Must be my age,

It was a young female that sang the song on NPR the most beautiful voice and I can't believe nobody can find it?....Very strange? In the interview on NPR the young woman said she was traveling with her family on different tours across the country? Who is she?

Guest-who-can't-find-it, may I suggest writing to NPR to ask them? That is, assuming the information isn't somewhere on their website? And then reporting back to us on what you find?

I have NO idea who the gal was you heard sing it.

Good post, Dan. Had I read the thread more closely I wouldn't have bothered looking at all because you'd already posted it. My apologies--I didn't doubt you, I simply thought someone was looking.
