| A few comments:
"Consolation": Harry wrote his own lyrics in English and recorded Bo Kaspers Orkester's song "Kom och håll om mig". Great stuff, on record AND on stage.
"Happy as a baby child": Harry grew tired of all these blues lyrics about somebody waking up to a wretched life ("Woke up this morning ...").
"Ramblin' Man": The Hank Williams song, NOT the Dickey Betts (Allman Bros.) hit. Although we are sure that Harry could do the Betts one justice!
