Bruce Cockburn's, "If a tree falls"
Misheard Lyrics:
Captain Move-On
Original Lyrics:
Cut n Move on
Great song though. A pity it only peaked in Australia at no. 41 and stayed in the charts for 5 weeks. Unfortunate surname, but it's pronounced "Cokeburn" thank goodness! Great website by the way, keep up the great work.
