THIS IS Y I DON'T LIKE GORDON LIGHTFOOT-I' m a black guy who can't sing & he's the greatest singer !
Report...
There's something eerie about Gordon's voice. But it almost sounds old and wise at the same time. This song always holds my attention. I love it.
Report...
My first concert was Gordon Lightfoot in Lansing. It was a fun evening.
Report...
No one has a voice like Gordon's. I never get tired of this song. Stellar in every way!

I wish I could go back to the first time I heard this song. I didn't have such a s**tty life back then.
Report...
one of my favorite lines of all time - I'd walk away, like a movie star who gets burned in a 3 way script, and yes, he is criminally underrated as a songwriter/s i n g e r
Report...
Gord certainly left us his gold for all to discover. What a beautiful song.

meaningful n smooth
