Thanks for Rainy Days and…

Canadian singer-songwriter Gordon Lightfoot’s Rainy Day People

And that’s just what I was thinking as I walked along in the rain, that rainy days are great for connecting with people. Gordon Lightfoot expresses it so beautifully. He’s lovely! And still going strong at age 74! Just embarked on another road tour of 70 shows! It’s mind-boggling. He’s the quintessential Canadian artist- get in the car and drive, and never stop! He’s even an Officer of the Order of Canada.
In a recent interview for GOERIE, he says:

“I love traveling. Most of it’s seen from a car window, but it’s an interesting life and being backstage and getting ready to do the shows keeps me going. Tuning your guitar and getting ready, it’s just a thrilling experience.” Read more…Gordon Lightfoot still touring (goerie.com)


Lyrics:Rainy Day People, Songwriter: GORDON LIGHTFOOT

Rainy day people always seem to know when it’s time to call
Rainy day people don’t talk, they just listen till they’ve heard it all
Rainy day lovers don’t lie when they tell ‘ya they’ve been down like you
Rainy day people don’t mind if you’re cryin’ a tear or two
If you get lonely, all you really need is that rainy day love
Rainy day people all know there’s no sorrow they can’t rise above
Rainy day lovers don’t love any others, that would not be kind
Rainy day people all know how it hangs on a piece of mind
Rainy day lovers don’t lie when they tell you, they’ve been down there too
Rainy day people don’t mind if you’re cryin’ a tear or two.

Rainy day people always seem to know when you’re feeling blue
High stepping strutters who land in the gutters sometimes need one too
Take it or leave it, or try to believe it
If you’ve been down too long

Rainy day lovers don’t hide love inside they just pass it on
Rainy day lovers don’t hide love inside they just pass it on

Life is an amazing journey. http://www.alisonamazed.wordpress.com http://www.alisonboston.wordpress.com

      Oh Yeah! The simplicity of this dish allows the flavours of the leeks and shiitake mushrooms to blend beautifully. It needs nothing more than salt and freshly ground pepper.  I thought about adding tumeric or fresh herbs, but loved…Read more ›
