No one does this better, that I’ve heard, than John McDermott. I played it once for my daughter, and she was sobbing on my shoulder at the end, and made me promise never to play it again.
When McDermott sings it, you can tell that he’s living it as he sings it. It’s a very, very simple tune, and McDermott’s voice is unspectacular, but still really nice, and just right for this song. A song about love, life and loss.
