A good showcase for the guitar. He's got an unmistakable voice and style. Not the most uplifting song I've heard this week!

His old folkie protest song from the 60s. The original recording under Decca featured an upbeat big band sound which obviously was a huge mismatch for the sad lyrics of the song. The re-recording does the song justice.
