At the End of the Day

[Sandy Denny]

“Anyone who has ever been away from home for a long time, and has felt a little homesick, will understand the sentiment behind this song. I wrote it on the plane journey home after an extensive tour of the United States.”

This is a song from Sandy’s third solo album, Like an Old Fashioned Waltz. Session out-takes without the strings of the final version was can be found on the cassette Together Again - The Attic Tracks Vol. 4, on the 5CD Fledg’ling Sandy Denny anthology A Boxful of Treasures, and as bonus track of the 2005 CD reissue of Like an Old Fashioned Waltz.
