music: the boxer

thanks to my papanwa (see: dad), i have a deep and abiding love for music from the 1960s  and 70s (see: hippie music). and when a modern favorite (see: mumford & sons!) covered a simon & garfunkel favorite (see: the boxer) (see: i don't know why i keep writing "see:" in parentheses but let's run with it) i was happy as a clam!

here it is, so you can enjoy it too!
happy friday.

In the clearing stands a boxer
And a fighter by his trade
And he carries the reminders
Of ev'ry glove that laid him down
Or cut him till he cried out
In his anger and his shame
"I am leaving, I am leaving"
But the fighter still remains

p.s. lie-la-lie will now be in my head all day.

The original is easily one of my most favorite songs ever. Literally- I made a list.
Solid cover.
