This performance is as old as my mum and it is still listened to. It has to be an amazing song for that.

I was drinking a scotch and soda talking to my best friend Eddie Smith who just came down on orders for Nam. He died there and shortly afterwards I enlisted in the Army so that he would not be forgotten. It took many years after I came home for those who went to hell during that time to be welcomed back. . . . .I'll never understand nor will the music of the time ever let me forget.

As great as this song is, when originally released, went no where. It took a lot of studio work and electric guitars to make it a hit.
