  • Esskayess from Dallas, TxA college roommate of mine almost ruined this one for me, saying that certain fraternaties there should replace the word "you" with "ewe."
  • Peter Steele from Medicine Hat Ab, AbThis is my favorite song of all time...I cry EVERYTIME that I hear it...the melody goes right through my body and I stop everything I am doing when I hear this song...if I ever get married this will be my Wedding Song
  • Sara from Eckerty, InI first heard this song when I was 10 years old, it remains one of my favorite.
  • Tony from Levittown, PaHello,
    Judith Durham is my favorite singer ever. And as two other people have stated here, she is incredibly Blessed with the best voice of any woman I have ever heard or ever will here, at least on this planet. Thank you.
  • Charlie from Cape Girardeau, MoDitto the previous comments about Judith Durham and chord structure. The harmonies and the nice 12-string guitar riff make this a hauntingly beautiful song.
  • Vicki from Houston, TxJudith has the most beautiful voice, she is blessed to sound like that.
  • Derek from Cambridge, New ZealandJudith Durham was a legend ,and still is! Her voice is superb, and summed up the 60s in the UK. Always makes me think of Carnaby Street and the King's Road in Chelsea, London.
  • Jim from Adelaide, AustraliaThe chord structure has a hymnal quality, when one analyzes it technically. The lyrics may give a clue as well - new world, long journey, stay by my side.
  • Howard from St. Louis Park, MnJudith Durham put a lot into the song. She was also the key to Georgy Girl becoming The Seekers biggest hit.
  • Johnny from Bridgeport, OhGreat,song,greatlyrics.Judith Durham got the best voice of any women I ever heard.She can really belt it out like no other.You should here her sing 'Danny Boy'
