YOU SHOULD LISTEN TO THIS TODAY (part 2)
Why? Well, this was written by English folk singer Ewan MacColl (that’s his stage name y’all) who also penned a staple protest song called The Manchester Rambler. Fun fact, he was married to Peggy Seeger who is the half sister of Pete Seeger. If you’re not a Rod Stewart fan you can listen to versions of this one by The Spinners, Donovan, The Pogues, Steve Earl and many others.
