I’m trying to trace a song with the following lyrics:

Without you they could make the sun go cold/Lock me up in a trunk till I grow old/ … without you …
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?

“Without You” was by UK artist Barry Mason and was a hit in South Africa in 1976 reaching number 7 on the Springbok Radio charts

This is a completely different song to the Badfinger / Harry Nilsson / Maria Carey song with the same title.
