The bass line for this tune is KILLER.
gerry rafferty has a cool lennonesque voice.

Gerry was another who passed too young. Baker's St of course everyone knows but he loved a bit of slide, harmonica and great Irish lilt to vocals. Tasteful banjo even!
He was in a band with Billy Connolly called The Stumblebums.
