Subject: Last Of The Widows

I've had this song going round and round in my head for the last couple of years. I've done a search on google but can't find the lyric or chords - anyone know them? What's annoying me is I only know these three words. Jez Lowe didn't do it when I saw him last year, even though I suspected it was one of his, I wasn't 100% sure, so I didn't want to shout out a request. It would have been embarracing if he had replied "That's Ralph McTell's"!

A beautiful and haunting song. You can hear Jez perform it on his Live at the Davy Lamp album

I was 8 years old when the accident happened and remember the event and aftermath vividly. The song captures the accident and following events perfectly. It is one of Jez's very best songs.

G'day all,

And there, below the line we have the same grief striking one of our own:

Mouldy's husband killed in Russian mine disaster

Regards,

Bob

A splendid and moving song by one of our very best singer-songwriters. And a nice bloke too.

Bob Fox does a beautiful version of it on his CD 'Borrowed Moments'.

Don't know the song, but I'll try and request it tonight when Jez is playing in Segeberg, Germany, and I'll be there.

He didn't do it last night either, but it's on the CD I bought, Live at the Davy Lamp. Otherwise the concert was great, with only Jez and Kate Bramley because the rest of the Bad Pennies couldn't make it. Very good songs, great musicianship, very nice people both of them. If you haven't heard it, Kate's voice is certainly impressive. And she even said she looks in on Mudcat once in a while.

I'll go with BB: Bob Fox's version is enthralling.
