I only discovered this song this morning. John Herald had such a unique and lovely voice and, I suspect, a soft spot for love songs, and this one found a soft spot in me. Not overly instrumented, but a lovely fiddle/violin that bluegrass lovers (I'm sure) will find to their liking.

thanks Sherry for the active link. Chucky, I don't know who the players were, but the link includes comments from friends and fans who were more knowledgeable about the individual members in John's band over the years. Listening to this tune several more times, I'm reminded of the sort of singing style made better known by willy nelson. FWIW, I think John deserved better out of life and the music community than he received.

Here's another favorite of mine from a different source: /youtube.com/watch?v=CNA9NqGaIWw. Who but some gentle soul like John Herald would write a love song marking the death of the last of a species?

The comments say it is a young Larry Campbell on banjo.

I love this song. I have tried to transcribe the lyrics, but there are a couple of places I cannot understand the exact words. Does anybody have an accurate version of the lyrics?

Hey Bob, I can't testify for the total accuracy on the lyrics in this link (/youtube.com/watch?v=2GuI_KpQqWM), and I'm too buzzed to compare my previously posted link with this one, but I hope it helps you. Dave

I found a video by the Abby Hollander Band that is totally understandable and I dubbed the words off. What a great, great song! I can send you a copy, but won't post it here because of possible copyright infringement

It's not a Greenbriar Boys tidbit, it's a John Herald Band tidbit. A bit syrupy for me.

Dear uncle, de gustibus non erat disputandum. I don't see this as much different from "Different Drum" or from long ago by Jim and Jesse, "Grave in the Valley."

On bass is George Quinn, fiddle is Caroline Dutton, dobro is Cindy Cashdollar. Among Woodstock’s finest of that (or any other) day.

Matthew,

 

Those were two different shows. The song Saved was 1 year later
