Subject: RE: This Song Makes me Weep
Anyone have any views on Richard Thompson's bittersweet lament Waltzing's For Dreamers? So very simple, so very sad.

I love this song, as sung by Linda Thompson - as I do most of Richard Thompson's work - and play it regularly. Luckily, I can keep a dry eye while I'm performing it!

However, Linda singing "The Dimming Of The Day" gets me every time.
