Thank you Jeris for the slide-guitar. Thanks to Victoria Melfi for adding her voice to the choral backing. A.E. Housman wrote the poem in 1896.

You brought me warmth and shelter
from Life’s most dreary days
and yet you would not have me
was such a high price paid?
If ever I had wished to rest beneath your shade
I’m certain that I should have never from your heart strayed.
Because I liked you better
Than suits a man to say,
It irked you, and I promised
To throw the thought away.

To put the world between us
We parted, stiff and dry;
`Good-bye,’ said you, `forget me.’
`I will, no fear’, said I.
