GUEST,ifor Lyr Req: Early Leonard Cohen (37) RE: Lyr Req: Early Leonard Cohen 26 Oct 10


My understanding is that Leonard learnt this song as a teenager from a trade union /left wing songbook when he attended a summer camp in Canadain the easrly 1950s.
The song is absolutely fantastic!
There is a great live version by Leonard and band taken from his 2008 World Tour which can be viewed on Youtube.
The'mandolin' player is superb.
