Gordon Lightfoot

Peaceful Waters

The dead leaves of autumn
That cling so desperately
Must fly before the cold october winds
Their simple lives have ended
Must they be born to die again
Oh may the light of freedom shine
For all the world to see
And peace and joy to all mankind
Through all the years to be
For soon the leaves will die
And the long hard wind will blow
May this world find a resting place
Where the peaceful waters flow

Remember Me

Remember me i'm the one who hurt you, dear
Hurt you, hurt you, dear.
Remember me i'm the one who loved you, dear
Loved you, loved you, dear.
I'm the one who ran away and left you all alone
I'm the one who broke your heart and scorned the love i've known.
Remember me i'm the one who's sorry now,
Sorry, sorry, now.
I'm the one who ran away and left you all alone
I'm the one who broke your heart and scorned the love i've known.
Remember me i'm the one who's sorry now,
Sorry, sorry, dear.

A Minor Ballad

Beyond the wild misty mountain
Within the valley so free
There dwells a maid with a heart so mellow
Soft as the wind and wild as the sea
When will you love me
As I love thee
I have no gold to give her
Nor gowns of soft crimson hue
Nor poems of love no rhymes to bring her
Into my heart so strong so true
When will you love me
As I love you
Beyond the wild misty mountain
Within the valley so free
There dwells a maid with a heart so mellow
Soft as the wind and wild as the sea
When will you love me
As I love thee?

Same Old Loverman

Im not some long lost someone
Just dropped in to say hello
Its that same old lover man
Baby you lost so long ago
cause I was born to believe
I never could deceive
Believe me
I hear no childrens voices
Have they gone back to school
And that same old lover man
Is still acting like a fool
I guess I was born to bring you grief
Though I never was a thief
Believe me
Its cold outside your window
Please let me in, the night is wild
Its that same old lover man
Not some lonesome winsome child
An I was born to believe
I never could deceive

The Way I Feel

The way i feel is like a robin
Whose babes have flown to come no more
A tall oak tree alone and cryin'
When her birds have flown and the nest is bare
Now a woman lord is like a young bird
And the tall oak tree is like a young man's heart
Among his boughs you will find her nesting
When the nights are cool she's warm and dry
Your coat of green will protect her
Her wings will grow your love will too
But all too soon your mighty branches
Will cease to hold her she'll fly from you
If i'd wings to fly
I'd follow you
If you'd wait for me
I'd fly away
I'd fly away

Canary Yellow Canoe

In my canary yellow canoe - my yellow canoe
I want to go tripping in my canary yellow canoe
The eastmain, coppermine, back river too
In my canary yellow canoe
In my canary yellow canoe - yellow canoe
I want to run rivers in my canary yellow canoe
The desmoines river, rupert river, george river too
In my canary yellow canoe
In my canary yellow canoe - mellow yellow canoe
I want to go tripping in my canary yellow canoe
Chebugema, peace river, resolute too
In my canary yellow canoe
In my canary yellow canoe - my elephant too
I want to go tripping in my canary yellow canoe
Churchill, yellowknife, ross river too
In my canary yellow canoe

Poor Little Allison

Poor little allison
Standing in the night wind
Wishing out loud
Turning her face to the summer rain
Poor little allison
Never had much goin
Hard to forget
Always in step with the world shes in
Never knowin never feelin
Showin so much pride
Never sayin what shes thinkin
Or feelin deep inside
Poor little allison
Dreaming of the right one
Laughing out loud
Lost in a crowd of fair weather friends
Never knowin never feelin
Showin so much pride
Never sayin what shes thinkin
Or feelin deep inside

Softly

Softly she comes
Whispers the breeze with her passing
In secret love she is laughing
Softly she comes in the night
Softly she sighs
Sweetly she lies never sleeping
Her fragrance all in my keeping
Softly she comes in the night
Down the darkened hall
I hear her footsteps on my stair
And she is in my arms once more
Then softly she goes
Her shining lips in the shadows
Whisper goodbye at my window
Softly she goes in the dawn
Down the darkened hall
I hear her footsteps on my stair
And she is in my arms once more
Then softly she goes
Her shining lips in the shadows

Its Too Late, He Wins

The days may come, the days may go
Like the dreams of love that we shared so long ago
Its the time, its the place to realize that I was wrong
Its too late, he wins and its there that you belong
Its there you will find all the love I couldnt give
While I live in regret, for as long as I may live
The years will pass but your memory will live on
Its too late, he wins and its there that you belong
Its there you will find all the love I couldnt give
Its there you will stay, for as long as you may live
Its the time, its the place to realize that I was wrong
Its too late, he wins and its there that you belong
Its too late, he wins and its there that you belong

My Pony Wont Go

Gotta make your mind up
Every single day
(I) hate to see you lonely
Losin me this way
Lookin for the man
Who stole my love from me
Gotta know the reason
Why my babys leavin
My pony wont go
Where I want him to go no more
Gotta make your mind up
If youre gonna stay
I dont see no sense in
Anything you say
Since you met the guy
Who told you I was wrong
You do all the livin
While I do all the givin
My pony wont go
He cant find no oats to eat
