Covered By Cash -The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face
A resounding victory for Hank Williams last week with I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry.
So whereas Johnny looked like he was cruising to an easy victory the last couple of weeks have seen him being pegged back and it is now Cash 7 The Rest 5.
If it goes to the wire I'll hopefully have just about enough material for 19 songs (or more if you count draws)
Happy to receive any contributions Ernie Goggins and Ramone666 have already kindly obliged.
Now I know that Ewan MacColl wrote The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face but today you are getting Roberta Flack because a) I don't have Ewan's version to hand and b) Roberta owns it..
Probably a trickier proposition than last week
I'm going for Roberta but only just. It's a real tough one.I suspect that Johnny would have beat Euan pretty convincingly.
Others, of course, may choose to disagree and I suspect that some of you will
