Lament for Henry Chapin

Appears on the album "Above, Around, Behind, Below" by Brollywacker (1997, John Talbert & Misti Bernard). It also seems to be on an album by Garnet Rogers titled "Speaking Softly in the Dark" (2000, 2007) but many sites list it as "Lament for -Harry- Chapin" and think it to be in honor of the great writer/performer who brought us the lament to fatherhood lost, "The Cat’s in the Cradle" (1974). I have found one source that gives authorship to Sara Baugan.
