Music and Lyrics by Tim Hardin

This 1966 Tim Hardin folk classic was among the first songs I asked Karen to sing for the "Magic Lamp" sessions (1966 - 1968).  The song worked well for her then, and later for our multi-tracked vocals as well.  With the exception of one 4-track, all tapes from the Magic Lamp experiment were lost in a fire that destroyed the Osborns’ home outside Nashville, TN, where they had moved in 1974.
