GUEST,George Henderson The Hermit (by Oscar Brand?) (12) RE: The Hermit (by Oscar Brand?) 30 Aug 16

Thank you Lighter.

Any thoughts on the origins of the song. We now know it was not written by Oscar Brand although he certainly made it popular.

Fair play to him though. He could have claimed authorship with resultant royalties etc.

I am interested because a close friend who is very sick sings the song and mentioned to me that he has no idea of its origins. Need to let him know fairly quickly if a source can be located.
