{September 17, 2010}   30 Days of Blogging – Day 16 – A Song that Makes me Cry

Funny I was just talking this up on Facebook a few days ago how I’m such a sap for songs. A few examples …

  • Cat’s in the Cradle (don’t know who sings this one but it’s a really powerful folk song)
  • Just a Dream by Carrie Underwood (OMG especially if I’m watching the video too … TEARS!)
  • Butterfly Kisses by Bob Carlisle
  • Christmas Shoes by NewSong

Alex says:

The song is originally done by Harry Chapin back in 1974. It's also been covered by Johnny Cash, Ugly Kid Joe, Jim Davidson, Finn Kalvik (who translated it to Norwegian and titled it "Ride Ranke").However, Cat Stevens also covered this song and the majority of people will name him first before the others. Even I, until now when researching the song, didn't know that Stevens wasn't the original artist.The song was originally a poem written by Chapin's wife. So Harry isn't even the original author of the song.
