SONG PROFILE
 
The Last Farewell

"The Last Farewell" is the title of a song from 1971 by the British-Kenyan folk singer Roger Whittaker.

Whittaker hosted a radio program in England in 1971, backed by a full orchestra with arrangements by Zack Lawrence.

Ron A. Webster, a silversmith from Birmingham, sent Whittaker his poem titled "The Last Farewell", and this became one of the selections to appear on the radio program.

It was subsequently recorded and featured on Whittaker's 1971 album, New World in the Morning (A Special Kind of Man in the US and Canada), although the song failed to reach the music charts.
