“Waiting for her master to kiss away her tears”
Well, I’m sorry! – but how many men do you know who kiss away their doggy’s tears?

”his tears fall in the dust
Kneeling by the churchyard in the autumn mist
Dreaming of a kiss”

How many doggies do you know of buried in a chuchyard?
Greyfriar's Bobby? – Not too sure where he was buried.

Dog – nah!!
I think she we was one of those rather simple girls we all come across from time to time. (Not very PC – sorry.)

It's such a beautiful song of love. To be able to grasp the complexity of simplicity is not within reach for most. Only love would know.

I LOVE that song! By the way, Gaby, Greyfriars Bobby is buried in Edingurgh. Good laddie!
But seriously, it is a powerful song that haunts me to this day!
Whatever Gord meant is good enough for me!
Take good care, all of you!

Reminds me of the Chris Rea song I was listening to yesterday. I think the song is called Soup Of The Day:

She's thin round the waistline
Thin round the brain
You've seen this type so many times
Time and time again...

Gaby, I was at Edinburgh Castle and there is a small yard there, underneath the Chapel, where all of the Castle's dogs were laid to rest. Kinda cool, as I am an animal lover.
There is a statue of Greyfriar's Bobby on High Street, just south of the Castle. His master died, and the dog sat at the grave for something like 12, or 14 years! The city took care of him and erected a statue to the dog for his love of his master!

Not for us this time. My wife and I are dealing with job and health problems at the moment, so a trip across the pond isn't in the cards till at least sometime next year.

RE: Bitter Green (my first Lightfoot 45...) The heroine of the story is supposed to be the mother of Gabriel Dumont, Louis Riel's military leader. As I recall from his live intro to the tune when he was recording the Sunday Concert album, she had a tragic life, and Dumont came to be known as "The Bastard Son of the Whore of Pig's Eye".
