Mother And Child Reunion (000017)

Mother And Child Reunion by Paul Simon

 

No I would not give you false hope

On this strange and mournful day

But the mother and child reu-nion

Is only a motion away, oh, little darling of mine...

 

Paul Simon wrote this in response to the Jimmy Cliff song "Vietnam;" a song about a mother receiving a letter about her son's death on the battlefield. Simon recorded this song in Jamaica using Cliff's musicians, hence the very authentic sound.
