— Farmer’s Song, Murray McLaughlin, 1973
Terry Craig from Midhurst: Anyone know how I can contact Terry, Walter and Frances Craig’s son? It was in 1975 when his My Birch Bark Tree album was released. I remember the concerts his mom and dad put on for the neighbours.
The Old Midhurst Road
If you’ve walked down the Old Midhurst road
Then you’ve learned enough to teach the young and old
That in the autumn of the year when the sun is so sincere
And the colour seems to hypnotize your soul.
Then you can let a little something with your time
Fall into the arms of the living.
Let a little sunshine fall again your way to show you’re proud.
Just to walk down the Old Midhurst road
You’ll realize you’re in an atmosphere alone.
But if you’ve got the time to spare to breathe the fresh clean country air,
Then a mile or two ahead won’t seem so far.
