Fogelberg + unknown artist compilation song

The community station I listened to in 1969-72 used to play an amazing rendition of Fogelberg's "Anyway I Love You" montaged with another song apparently called "Let Me Go".

It was sung with a plain acoustic guitar, by a male and female duo whom I always assumed (incorrectly, I now realize) were Richard and Linda Thompson.

It started out with the lyrics and one chorus of "Anyway I Love You", and then went into this:

Let me go, I've had my share of heartaches.

Let me go, I've had my share of pain.

Let me go, I've had my share of in between the lines

[chorus]

And it's just about the season

And it's just about the day

And it's just about the easiest thing

To break right down and say

Let me go -- oh, oh

Oh, it's time for me to fly

Let me go -- oh, oh

Before I die.

Let me go, you've put me through the wringer

Let me go, you've taken all my [can't remember]

Let me go, you took my love and squeezed it till it's dry

[chorus]

Somebody help me out? I want it on my current car playlist.

This is it! As I listened I realized that I knew what the female singer was going to do right before she did it -- a sure sign that this is the song in my memory.

This would make sense. The station that played this all the time was a Champaign-Urbana community station and they often played stuff recorded live at the Red Herring.

Thank you!
