Bernice, I hate that song. It's the most depressing song ever. I know someone who used to hang out with Dion. This was after
his hits died down. He, allegedly, was on heroin, then tried to make a comeback years later with this song.

I value the version that sings the lines about Bobby.
Released once to my knowledge.
I keep the mp3 ready to go.
Folk Music has it's value.
I don't care about the back stories, most are bull.
Music is about ..... the music.
From Guthrie father and son to Acuff to Dylan to Billy Joel and we didn't start the fire,
Folk Music is of the people and their lives saved to others' lives in song.
'This Land is My Land' and 'We Shall Over Come' have deep roots and long branches still growing.
No less for Goodman and Miller and Holiday and Miles.
Nor for da' Dead and Hendrix and Allmans and Morrison.
And I still keep Cat Stevens mp3s too.
and Tull and Steppenwolf.
Music is a spectrum with portions for all states of mind.
