  • It is a pastoral ballad sung by Gilmour. In The Man And The Journey, it was retitled "The Beginning" in "The Journey" half of the show. It was played as a medley with "Beset By The Creatures Of The Deep," which is a retitling of "Careful With That Axe, Eugene".
  • There is a tin whistle or pennywhistle on the song, but it is not known who plays it. Some sources say that it is Nick Mason's wife Lindy. The live performances of this are considerably different. Gilmour would use an electric guitar, there'd be a scat solo after the last verse, drums, and the song would merge with "Careful With That Axe, Eugene".
