Like a drunk in a midnight choir
I have tried in my way to be free
Like a worm on a hook
Like a knight from some old fashioned book
I have saved all my ribbons for thee
In this late '60s clip, Judy Collins sings a live version of the song, which she had recorded on the exquisite album Who Knows Where the Time Goes. The sound is good, although the video is wacky.
I also love this footage of them duetting on "Suzanne."
Cohen's "Sisters of Mercy" was one of the first songs I learned to play on the guitar. Anyone else fans of these artists? Judy really brought his poetic songs to mainstream audiences.
