I haven't heard one yet that I couldn't relate to. At one time or another I feel like he wrote it about me or my family or my love. He has the talent to explore his strengths and weaknesses and they turn out to be our strengths and weaknesses. His research and musicianship are masterful. When he tells a story it is literature and when he adds the music it is classical and it's because he is folk that he captures our souls and makes them fly.

Merri,

You put that so beautifully and so all-inclusively.

Just prompted me to share a line with everyone. It is from "Stone Cold Sober."
Have placed copies of it in several places in our house, and carry it with me. It portrays the way that I like to view my marriage to my husband. It is this:

"I hope that we can see each other often, that our points of view will blend into each other, like the sea and the horizon."

Thank you Gord.

Gotta Get Away
Sometimes I Wish
Someone To Believe In
East Of Midnight
Rainy Day People
For Lovin Me
Baby It's Alright

Those are ones I can relate to the most.

My favorite is "Canadian Railroad Trillogy," from a list of really great songs.

Why? Beacuse it is in one song an account of the American spirit, both US and Canada, during the period that both conutries were built from scratch. It is a defiant statement of who they were and why they did what they did.

It also answers, the rabid enviornmentalist with a simple line: Before the railroad, "when the green, dark forest was too silent to be real," the was no forest idiot.

Thanks Gord for ALL your songs.
