I have a verse or two of it on a worn cassette tape recorded off Radio Good Hope or the SABC English Service sometime in 1981.
I have found it on a Dennis East album on www.worldofcountry.com but the version I have is slightly more up-tempo and has female backing vocals. A friend suggests Tommy Dell or someone of that group of SA country singers. Do you have any idea of who else may have recorded it?
This is a completely different song to the Badfinger / Harry Nilsson / Maria Carey song with the same title.
