A common man marvels at uncommon things. A wise man marvels at the commonplace. CONFUCIUS

I fell in love with this song the 1st time I heard it many years ago. It's a contemporary folk classic. Richard Thompson's guitar playing is outstanding - as always - and his lyrics are superb: 'Oh she was a rare thing, fine as a bee's wing'... 'There was animal in her eyes'... 'You might be lord of half the world, you'll not own me as well'. Just take a listen.

Wow, I love it, so warming to the soul. I've never heard it before so had to listen to it twice.
