Well, go on now and kiss it goodbye, But hold on to your lover, 'Cause your heart's bound to die.

As my friend Jan will tell you I am a big fan of female vocalists, especially of the rootsy variety.

One of whom I was never a fan was Iris Dement, there was something about her voice that I just couldn't like, BUT the girl could write.

I was listening to the Translatlantic Sessions on BBC 4 when this track started.

I still am not a fan of her voice but just LISTEN to the lyrics.

Another great lyricist was Kate Wolf, I can't find her singing this but Nanci and Emmy Lou make a nice subsitute

Possibly my fave song of ALL time

and as its Valentine's day ! As Jan can testify Julia can sing this note perfect live.
