"The Last Time I Saw Her" (Gordon Lightfoot)

But that was so long ago
That I can scarcely feel the way I felt before.
And if time could heal the wounds
I would tear the threads away
That I might bleed some more.

Reposted to make note of the death of Gordon Lightfoot.


  1. A Canadian icon. Thank you.

      The addendum I added yesterday goes to an interesting PBS video of a lecture by a meteorologist about the weather phenomenon that sank the ship.

  3. Now I will have to add this song to my "to learn" list.

  4. His "Early Morning Rain" was recorded as a demo in 1965 by the group that later became the Grateful Dead. One of his better and more memorable songs.
