I've always heard the song while growing up, just never really paid any mind to it. Then one night I was watching a documentary on PBS on the Fitzgerald, and Gord's song was playing throughout the documentary. I was really in tune to the ship and how the crew and captain felt while going through the ordeal. Gordon was able to capture that feeling and put it into words and rhyme with the right mix of twangle and jangle. Since that night, Gordon Lightfoot has been top on my list of favorite artist. I'm still learning about him and his music, but the more I learn, the more I relate, understand, and appreciate. Thanks for the opputunity.
When or will Gord ever come south (New Orleans, Baton Rouge area)?
thanks - Earl
