Thanks for that, Glacier. I'm a Stan Rogers fan, and don't recall hearing this one before.... Poor old Stan sure deserved a better end to his life than the hand he was dealt....

Edit: Lyrics http://lyrics.wikia.com/wiki/Stan_Rogers:First_Christmas It is a tear-jerker for sure.... :cry:

I have learned that to be with those I like is enough.

I posted about this tune just shy of seven years ago when this thread was brand new after hearing it used in a TV series soundtrack with considerable emotional impact. (turned me to jello right there on the couch) At the time all I could find was a poor copy of a live performance, here's something a little better. The song is by Beth Neilson Chapman, and was a re-entry into her career as a singer/songwriter a few years after losing her husband to cancer. Just try and get through it without tearing up. I dare ya.

That reminds of much Ukrainian folk music.

It’s either upbeat or terribly depressing.
