Default Help please

Just found this great site.

Looking for one of Gordon's album tracks that had words something like this , 'the perfume that she wore came from some little store from the dark side of town. It lingered on long after she'd gone'.

This is from memory so probably horribly wrong.I had an album it was on in the late 70's early 80's but have lost it.

Would appreciate any feedback

Bav

the song is 'Affaire on 8th avenue'.

the original is found on Back here on earth (1968) and there's a re-recording on Gord's Gold (1975)

I typed that line into GOOGLE - and here's what I found:

"The perfume that she wore came from some corner store, on the down side of town,
and it lingered on, long after she'd gone."
(Gordon Lightfoot)

What did you expect with corner store perfume, Gord?

Yours, Peter T.
