    Great choice on the Sandy song, although I only know the Judy Collins cover.

    I'm staggered that not only has this song not shown up, but I haven't seen any Tom Waits at all. (Apologies if I missed it)

    Tom Rush - Urge for Going from the Circle Game LP. Reminds me of my first wife. She left me for another guitar player after telling me I'd never amount to anything (a serious error in judgement). However, I listened to it back then and cried like a baby. Now married 40 years to wife 2 and I can listen to the song and thank no. 1. :))

    Knowing that he wrote and recorded it while he knew he was dying makes it even more sad.

    I love this melancholic song by Tom Waits - Shiver me timbers.
