    Quiz #20

    Blimey, this singer was born in the early 40s.
    He did a cover of a song that was written and recorded by a USA born singer, songwriter and guitar player. Don’t be “blue” if you don’t know who wrote this song.
    You got the other quizzes way too fast so I will be stubborn as a “mule” with this one.

    Who is the singer and what is the song title?

    Hint: 21-Nov: This singer played on the Ed Sullivan show with his 3 band mates. Note: Other clues are highlighted in red in other posts below.

    Another thought - was it Tom Waits [born 7 Dec 1949] with 'Get behind the Mule'

    Bassy9, It's not those ones and Tom Waits is not the singer. The singer I am looking for was born in the early 40s, blimey!

    It is not Lonnie Donnegan, or Mule Skinner Blues or Mule Train.
    The singer (who is still living) does have something in common with Lonnie Donnegan - THINK AWARD.
    The person who wrote the song at age 13 is no longer with us.
