One of the most powerful songs ever, and you delivered a powerful performance. It was first released as the B side of "Fine and Mellow", which I covered a while back, but I don't think I could do this one.

Thank you Doug.
At the time it was released it must have had a mixed reaction.
I have seen a very disturbing documentary of the same title on the same topic.

I only considered doing this on the baritone uke.
I just can't see it being done on the smaller ukes for some reason.
They are too happy an instrument?

Although with your beautiful jazz chord skill I believe you could do it well, Doug.
It is a song that should not fade away.
I guess that it is being attempted by an old bloke in Australia shows that it hasn't.
Powerful and Important indeed.
