And it was his own version of this song (he's put the lyrics to his own music) that made me pay much more attention to his completely original music. Anyone who can renew, or invite, interest in a song I had heard hundreds of times before deserves to be praised and more closely listened to.
Currently touring his latest record Stay Under The Stars (Arlo and Betty Recordings), I encourage you to seek out tickets for his shows and discover him for yourself.
