China Girl

Album: Sophisticated Beggar (1966)
  • songfacts ®
  • Not to be confused with any later song of the same title, "China Girl" runs to 3 minutes 36 seconds and is the first track on Harper's debut album, Sophisticated Beggar. Like all the others, it was written by him.

    Rock fans will probably prefer Bowie's song of the same name. So will folk fans. >>
