Solved: Possibly late 70's Melodic Rock song
I have known this song for at least 25 years, but have never been able to identify the song or the artist. I don't know if it is a band or an individual.
The song has a string arrangement/accompaniment with a heavy rock flavour. The guys voice is very throaty. The guitar solo - a very melodic but staccato style - is in the middle of an organ bridge.
The lyrics are something like this:
"Hey, buddy what's your name?
You look like you're in pain.
Has this old life treated you so bad?"
Near the end, the lyrics are like:
"You've understood, I know"
At the end of the song, the lyrics fade with what I believe to be the following repeated over and over:
"You've helped me by the way" or
"You've helped me find the way".
I have no clue who did this song but it is a beautiful heavy rock song, kind of a lumbering-along tempo.
I would sure appreciate someone's help with this 25-year-old mystery. And, I thank anyone who can provide any other hints.

Walter Rossi Ride the WInd
It's Ride the Wind by Walter Rossi--a superb guitarist from Montreal. He was a semi-popular artist in Canada in the late 70s and 80s.
Check out his site:
