He closed most of 1988 shows (and many in 1993) with that (short) song, a cappela, with the whole band and the blessings. I have it on dozens of CDRs and bootlegs.

It's at Diamonds in the Lines website:

http://perso.orange.fr/pilgraeme/wither.htm

It's adapted from Bible's Book of Ruth, and the main line indeed appears in the Ballad of the Absent Mare.


MP3 is also at ~greg's site with unreleased Cohen songs:

ps. If Greg took it from Rare Live Songs CD, then it's from Nürnberg 10 May 1988.
