Story behind the song
The meter of this song moves primarily around 5 beats to a bar. Richard Dyer-Bennet used to say that this was because of the shepherdess searching for the lambs. Played in D minor tuning, it was recorded by Lesl and Mike Metz in 1972 for a demo. It was then recorded by many others. Re-recorded by Lesl in 1993.
