I've only heard K K sing it and was intrigued from the outset.
   
At one time I thought he had set it in London with the mention of the Golden Crown as pubs are part of our culture and it was nearby to Victoria Station, yeah I know but I was younger then and didnt think there were pubs anywhere else

Tinker: I concur whole heartedly with your interpretation and as a performer its essential to be able to sing this song with from the soul especially if one can empathize with the scenario .

Leadfingers maybe missing the point.

I did buy an early E Harris album but she wasnt singing the kind of songs I was looking for.

Thanks Joe for posting the words, I had transcribed them into one of my songbooks back in the late 60s and was pleasantly surprised by how accurately I had done it , having become an expert in lifting a stylus on and off the vinyl.
