A real tear-jerker, this one. Written as a tribute to his friend's dead son.

It is a gypsy tradition to bury a child with an acorn in each hand, so twin oak trees in a hedgerow may well mark a grave.....

Some are born great, some achieve greatness and some have greatness thrust upon them.

The rest of us are a bit crap.

That last one in your link is a definite child's grave, I'd say. It is a sweet tradition - Gypsies by their very nature leave little mark on the world and it is somehow appropriate that it is their children that have the biggest memorials.

I was actually looking for a smiley that sort of half smiled, half cried... it's just that it's the kind of song at which you wipe away a tear... :')
