    The inside of the original album had (Who was he, the reaper or a shepherd?) standing on a hill overlooking a village. Over the years I have drawn that figure but I drew him as the reaper with a bony hand and no face.

    Love the song too, especially the change of paces from a slow winding song to a rockin song.

    Uhm... I'll agree that it's overrated, but it's certainly not crappy. It has a very lulling, gentle sound and defined folk in a very unique way. Personally, I don't like the song, but I won't say it's crappy just for that reason.

    Starts off nice and mello - then gets into a screeching cresendo that seems to go on forever...........

    The era (early 70s) of longer is better: Layla, American Pie (and even Hey Jude could have been cut in half- one of my least favorite Beatles tunes)
