From the recording Numberless Dreams

Trad, arr. Julie Abbé

Inspired by Nick Jones's version. I rewrote the 3rd verse, removed the ending, and chose to repeat the first verse instead, to give a more ambiguous and hopeful ending to the story.

Julie Abbé: vocals, guitar
Dominie Hooper: backing vocals
Sid Goldsmith: concertina, backing vocals
