Recently heard this song in a shopping mall as if wafted meaningfully through meaningless commercial corridors. Since then I haven’t gotten it out of my head, recalling its various versions by Neil Diamond, Johnny Cash and others. Until I find x (a woman, love, etc) then I’ll just stay as I am, a Solitary Man…I wonder if I am on the verge of a Neil Diamond appreciation phase?
Here is a Johnny Cash rendition of this great song. Enjoy!
