Samson and Delilah / If I Had My Way

Cohen and The Spirits - Mark Cohen and Jivie
Traditional, last verse by Mark Cohen


I recorded this for Gaslight Records (Gaslight Records) last year.  Sam Pethers sent me an email about Gaslight Records and asked if I'd like to record a song for them.  I love what Gaslight Records is, and said, "Yes."  I almost always do originals.  I like them and they're good songs.  But asked to choose a pre-1964 song to keep alive, I thought of If I Had My Way immediately.  It's a song I love, a song I love playing, and a song that tells a story that's been around for ages.  I wrote the final verse in this recording - always felt the song story needed this ending.
