    The strings add a touch of sepia that enhances the mood of the song, the passing of time & memory.

    "Fruit tree, fruit tree. No-one knows you but the rain and the air. Don't you worry, they'll stand and stare when you're gone". Is this not the saddest and truest line ever sung?

    Great song, I prefer his songs without all of the overproduction though. I have a great demo from him with about 24 songs, all with just the guitar and the voice.

    Very beautiful indeed. I don't know how much prescience there is in the lyrics, but it's still very moving, even more so when you know where it all ended. I love this song, but I wonder how it would sound had he done it on Pink Moon i.e. somewhat more anguished and with just the guitar

    I've been in such a good mood. Till now... (2) HA! That will teach you for listening to Nick Drake! If that's the case please stay away from Elliot Smith, joy division and countless other acts where the artist takes himself deep because people don't take him seriously.

    I was 14 when I first heard this on the radio... i didn't know who the singer was, or anything, all i knew was that this song stopped me dead in my tracks! It was several years later when i discovered Nick Drake, and have listened to him countless times... but this song always remains close to my heart.

    'They'll know that you were here when you're gone'. Scary. [2] Very - that's Nick.

    Just found out that Robert Kirby, the guy who wrote the string arrangements on Nick's albums, recently died. Decided to listen to this in his honour. What an amazing talent. RIP.

    I was astonished when I knew this album was released in 1969. He was ahead of his time. Probably one of the most touching artist I ever heard.
