So We'll Go No More A-Roving

As it's Valentine's Day, here's a song about love. Well, kind of about love. Actually it's about the end of love, as it fades due to age and fatigue, and the death of romance. Errr...happy Valentine's Day!

I reckon this just about qualifies for the Traditional Song challenge, as the lyrics are from a poem written by Lord Byron in 1817. Several other artists have set these words to music in the past, notably Leonard Cohen and Joan Baez; hopefully I've put a new spin on it.

This is also new in a couple of other ways - first song I've recorded on Reaper as opposed to Audacity (for the record, Reaper is seven kinds of awesome), and the first outing for my new harmonica. Hope you enjoy it.
