"Alan and Lynda who used to sing at Bacca Pipes Folk Club in Keighley, they used to give me blank cassettes with recordings of things they thought I should listen to, Anne Briggs was on there and I'd never heard her before. It was the first song I picked out of about a hundred songs, to learn and sing. I knew, if I sang at a singaround, this was my go-to song. So for a long time this felt like my song. I like it because it's a girl looking for her boyfriend, she can't find him, then she sees him with somebody else, and then instead of being a bit depressed and grumpy about it or dying from a broken heart, she says, "well, I'll just see him now and then, then". I'm not sure if I admire her for that but it's interesting. I would never record this, because it's so Anne Briggs' song it's missed all my albums but it's still a strong part of me. It's quite nice that this is a pure unaccompanied song, one that's nice kept that way."
