A magnificent song. The pain of the children asking their mama if it were true what they had heard... with the orchestral arrangement bedim them. Whoever says that blacks in mid-century America were just having sex, doing drugs and didn't care about family should listen tot this song!
It's one of the best slow burn tracks, ever. It's 12:04 long.
It takes 3:54 seconds before the first line is spoken.
"It was the third of September..."
Everyone should hear this.
