Gordon Lightfoot writes the kind of songs I wish I could write and sings like I wish I could. I appreciate him more as time goes by.

Gods feeling low, goes to His favorite bar in Heaven, walks in and heard a low deep voice emanating soulful sound. God smiles, happy he made this voice, looks up and says
"Gordon, good to hear you son"

I like this song a lot.

I don't know if the carefree highway is always the best answer, but if you drive solo enough you find yourself lost in thoughts, and with a little luck some answers. Most people just want to get home, where ever that may be at the time.

amazing song. I love that almost melancholy feel a lot of his songs have, that urge to roam and lost love. And hell, I wasn't even alive in the 70's......

Love Gordon Lightfoot. People don't talk about him that much, but his music is great.

We sang this in 8th grade choir class. It has always held a special place in my heartfelt memories. Of course, I'm talking 1975-76!
