Excellent rendering of this classic folk ballad, which is an American variant of The Lily of the West. Soaring tenor voice that suits the song perfectly. Clear pronunciation, so you can hear the whole story. Well-judged vocal and guitar variations hold your interest without being overdone. A pleasure to listen to.

a lovely folk song, love the vocal tone and style and the acoustic guitar is great throughout. good lyrics and story. very traditional in its way but sounding modern. enchanting tune and a naturally sounding very good performance.
