This week the excellent singer/songwriter Harry Chapin would have celebrated his 80th birthday this week. Sadly, he was killed in a road accident in 1981, but he left some wonderful songs. This song began as a poem written by his wife Sandra which Harry turned into a song. Why it was never a UK hit is a complete mystery but thankfully, a cover version by Ugly Kid Joe in 1993 brought this great song to a new audience. Enjoy!
