This could CHANGE your life.
Please do yourself a HUGE favor and listen to it.
Least you can do for me after ALL we have been through. SMILE.
This was one of my first FORMATIVE songs.
Growing up in the U.K, on my own, kind of abandoned by my adoptive parents, c. 1970, aged 17, I started discovering NON MAINSTREAM groups. “The Strawbs” was the FIRST such group I discovered. I think I went to one of their concerts BECAUSE it was the ONLY one I could afford to take a date on! Good reason as any. It was a fancy venue on the banks of the Thames. They, “The Strawbs”, that night blew both of us away BUT for the world of me I can’t remember who she was. Story of my life. But, luckily “The Strawbs” made much more of a lasting impression. I still have, in vinyl form, my original “Strawbs” LPs.
I loved this song. I am not a Christian, never have been, never will be, but I like these words. I like the BIT about what Jesus will say IF asked about the pope.
I went onto become a HUGE fan of “Dave Cousins“. You have heard of Dave … right?
Here, PLEASE check out the Wikipedia entry for “The Strawbs”.
So, PLEASE. Indulge me. Listen to this. It will make an impression. Cheers. SMILE.
