Mike Waterson's version is reissued as Disc 1 Track 8 of the new Topic 7 CD set Three Score and Ten - an utterly glorious ten minutes and and fifty eight seconds. Mike's treatment could be the definitive one, but I have always had a great liking for the punk-influenced version by a young Pete Morton from his album Frivilous Love.

Do you know that this ballad even has its own website? You can learn more than you'd ever want to know about it at
