Steel Rail Blues

Lyrics

Well I got my mail late last night
A letter from a girl who found the time to write
To her lonesome boy somewheres in the night
She sent me a railroad ticket too

This is as country as I've heard Gordon get. Has a little Jimmie Rodgers going on.

Love this song. Its in my own songbook that I use with my guitar. Gordon is my biggest inspiration for playing and singing storyteller songs. Thanks Gord for everything youve given me.

I saw Gordon Lightfoot in concert in Springfield, Missouri and his performance was stellar. Beautiful lyrics, wonderful performer!

I love the symmetry of beauty in his voice and the words he writes. You only get that with singer/songw r i t e r s . There is no disconnect. Just a simply bittersweet sentiment expressed by a flawed man needing his love. I have yet to find a Gordon Lightfoot song that I didn't thoroughly enjoy. So very lovely.
