“I can’t go down with you like that and that’s what she said, so that song really became important to me.
“The songs on this album are very important to me and my time of life now,” Sir Tom added.
Sir Tom married Melinda Trenchard in 1957.
They were childhood sweethearts, with Tom having fallen for Linda when they were both 12 years old, as they walked to school together in Treforest, South Glamorgan.
After being married for just a few months, Tom and Linda welcomed their only child Mark, in 1957.
