Customer Reviews

like one of my fav songs!

i love this song, for some reason it always reminds me of guns and roses...

love this song fits the tone of the original version very well

I really like this song and I would recommend it to any fan of this band. the video fits the tone of the song very well and it feels like they made the song the way they wanted to do it. both versions of this are very good listien to both then decied for yourself which one you like best.

Better than the original!

This is even better than the original by Harry Chapin that I have on a 45 vinyl, because it is much more emotional. It sounds like it something the singer lived through, and the background music is better, too.
