GUEST,Tim Lyr Req: A Friend of Mine Is Going Blind (J D Read (18) RE: Lyr Req: A Friend of Mine Is Going Blind (J D Read 10 Sep 20


11 years after the previous post, and still there's interest in John Dawson Read and that great song A Friend of Mine is Going Blind. I'm learning guitar (about 18 months in, so able to venture into songs rather than exercises and do them a (very slight) bit of justice by now (though I can't sing even as well as I can play guitar.)

I recall seeing JDR perform on the Old Grey Whistle Test (it must have been on that) in the seventies and like others was haunted by the song. I had both his albums, though I gave one (A Friend of Mine) to my sister who lived abroad, for her to enjoy it as well, but I've still got Read On.

I was looking for the guitar chords so thanks Raymond Wong back in 2001 for your efforts!
