Yours truly on stick dulcimer and vocal, Habu Hiroshi on percussion. Our band is called S&H. Lyrics and other versions of the song here.

Really nice. More poignant than previous versions.

The "jump to falsetto" thing (that you do at the end of the second line of the verses) - I love that shit, gives me goosebumps every time.

Nice chord progressions in the chorus & bridge, too. Just that bit of extra flavor, a bit of the unexpected that really bumps this tune up a notch.

Really, really nice, man.
