Gordon Meredith Lightfoot Jr .November 17, 1938 – May 1, 2023.A very sad day we lost a Canadian icon.
First up on my mosrning playlist,fitting the weather today..
Early Morning Rain (1975 Version)
In the early morning rain with a dollar in my hand
With an aching in my heart and my pockets full of sand
I'm a long way from home,Lord,I miss my loved ones so
In the early morning rain with no place to go
Out on runway number nine a big 707 set to go
And, I'm stuck here in the grass where the pavement never grows
Now, the liquor tasted good and the women all were fast
Well, there she goes, my friend, she'll be rolling down at last
Hear the mighty engines roar, see the silver wing on high
She's away and westward bound, far above the clouds she'll fly
There the morning rain don't fall and the sun always shines
She'll be flying over my home in about three hours time
This old airport's got me down, it's no earthly good to me
And I'm stuck here on the ground as cold and drunk as I can be
You can't jump a jet plane like you can a freight train
So, I'd best be on my way in the early morning rain
You can't jump a jet plane like you can a freight train
So, I'd best be on my way in the early morning rain
