John Barleycorn

on Gold

Lyrics

There were three men came out of the west, their fortunes for to try
And these three men made a solemn vow
John Barleycorn must die
They've plowed, they've sown, they've harrowed him in

I was young and I was stupid. This was one of the first LPs I bought. I had no idea that I bought a masterpiece. . . . u n t i l I listened and then again and again. We throw the word genius around like it's slang. But Steve Winwood was and is still is regarded and rightfully so as a GENIUS. HE IS!!!

Grew up listening to this on vinyl (my dad's). Have learned to love Traffic as one of a kind. This one has a foreboding, dangerous tone to it. Love it
