I first heard this song on Radio 2's Country Club back in 1984 and I recorded it onto tape, eventually after 2 years the tape broke and I was unable to find another copy.
So for the past 27 years I have been searching for it, then finally found it re-released on Amazon.
Leon is an Irish singer with that wonderful lilt in her voice,this song was made for her to sing. Box-car Willie wrote the song but I do not know if he ever recorded it.
When I listen to Leon singing it sends shivers down my spine, she is magic.
