New 12 String Mike, you are correct. But I was reading the song from the Wayne Francis Website, and it's his mistake. I went to my Sunday Concert CD, and it is the 2 lines you wrote.

Sorry about that, but it is the Wayne Francis site that has it wrong. There's a lot of mistakes there that I found, since playing these games.
CHEERS...JJ.

Good ideal Mike, this could be fun, as you said.

Jessie -Joe,
Friend - just a kind word about Wayne Francis. His tireless efforts in GL FAQ'S are legendary,as is his chat-room start-up. Great guy and even better musician. If 1 percent of his FAQ'a are off, he is still in the ethereal
3-sigma accuracy level, rarely attainable in anything. Hats off to him,and you probably did not know of him and explits in honour of Gord for years. He's one of the good guys ! - steve

Oh yes, I know Wayne Francis is a good person. It's just that a few times I did go to his site for answers to our little game we play here,from time to time when we can get along. And there were some minor mistakes, and I had to explain myself. But it's nothing that I can't handle. Your friend,,,JJ.

Well said Steve
In fact I still have a lengthy continuous paper(dot-matrix printer) printout that I made back in 1997 from the series of FAQs that were then available in profusion (because Wayne constantly honead and updated them!!) on the Newsgroup
for example see an update from 1996:-
Parts 1 through VII at:-
http://groups.google.com/group/alt.m...3b5fd7cdf3c62c
which begins:-
FAQ Part I
----------
Early Biography
Discography
- Albums
- EPs
- Singles
- Remixed Singles
- Internet Tribute CD


FAQ Part II
-----------
The Lightfoot Band
- Lineup Changes Over The Years
- Band's 1979 Soundstage Comments
- Present Day Member's Profiles
- Musicians By Album
- Fret Magazine Interview

FAQ Part III
------------
Books
- Books On Lightfoot
- Books With Text By Lightfoot
- Songbooks
Unreleased Songs
1996 Tour Summary

Wayne periodically issued comprehensive listings of his FAQ Updates see for example:-
http://groups.google.com/group/alt.m...a6458d6a906841
Eventually he used this great effort and reconstituted it into the semi-official "official"
GL web site at:-
http://www.lightfoot.ca
I suspect that Valerie Magee when she slightly earlier (I think I am right in saying) created her late lamented cornucopia at:- http://www.gordonlightfoot.com
realised that the lyrics Wayne showed then (and now) are less than 100% accurate, because as Valerie now says on her "albums" page at:-
http://www.mageenet.net/albums.shtml
"Click on any album title for the full list of tracks, for clips of many songs, and for lyrics for all of them. Thanks to Cathy Cowette, Sean Gaynor, Ed Mullen and Lisa Westbrook for help with lyrics files."
(Not sure if that exercise increased Char's daughter's appreciation of the poet genius or not)
Char??
and therefore it must be assumed that Valerie got them all correct.
Am I right Val??
I recently realised that you can still access those individual song lyrics at:-
http://www.gordonlightfoot.com/songs.shtml
which are presumably the proof read/corrected versions and therefore a definitive set
Again am I correct Val??
If so, Jessie-Joe you now know a better source of accurate Lightfoot lyrics.
I do not know which source Florian used for the lyric section on this site.
May I be so bold as to suggest J-J that your mission now (not impossible), if you wish to accept in order to set things straight on this matter,is to compare Wayne's, Valerie's and Florian's lyrics pages for some sample errors that you found on Wayne's site and
1.report back here a summary of your research
and
2 email as full details as you can of the errors to the webmaster(s) of the two sites as applicable
(that task you should be able to find the time to do and it would be a very constructive service to the Lightfot fan community)

And talking aboot the Newsgroup, Walter and others interested in single and album chart positions you must read the recent thread subject:-
"GL Chart Positions"
at:-
http://groups.google.com/group/alt.m...a1e38053a642/#

Charlene, this was suggested by Mike, If you want to go a little back on this post, he explains it. Im going to try. You know how Gordon in some songs uses the same line, but with a different one following it, such as; in Apology, for instance. He says;

"Gather not your gold on earth, (your kingdom is in heaven.)"

And then later in the song he repeats,

"Gather not your gold on earth, (it will not pass inspection.)"

Thats what he wants us to try. :D Do you get it? :D JJ. OH you also have to give the name of the song... JJ.

When you wake up to the promise - Race Among The Ruins.

next:

When you were a child at school they taught you quite a lot
You were told when you should speak and when you should not
You were taught to read and write, to take your lessons home at night
