The Top Ten
Among the absolute best lyrics of all-time, and sung pretty damn well too.
"...you won't read that book again because the ending's just too hard to take..."
So beautiful and painful at the same time, as it captures so much feeling and thought accurately and directly - Billyv
Couldn't agree more, Billy. Arguably the most haunting expression of love gone wrong, ever. Exquisitely profound stream of consciousness. Almost Arthurian in ambiance. Some excellent cuts on this list, bud.
Happy 78th Birthday, (17 November, 2016) Mr. Lightfoot :). - Britgirl
My goodness. This is the very song I was just about to introduce to someone:) Live from The Last Waltz even better.
Rick Danko (RIP). Nuther good 'ol Canadian boy. Damn. That's three times, now. Must be losin' it.
Thought I might give this it's tenth listen. :) It kind of stays with you, being a really great song and all... - Britgirl
Yep. Sure is. They're always thinkin' what isn't.
...And yet I still do... - Britgirl
This is a beautiful song! - jmepa1234
I’ve recently learned this song. Notable backstory to it. Simple but great poetry, and latter day performances are incredibly enhanced. Leonard live in Dublin in 2017 (I believe) is outstanding - Billyv
I heard this today and all those memories came flooding back... - Britgirl
This song is really sad:-( - jmepa1234
Just so you know. - Britgirl
This song actually made me cry. - RiverClanRocks
"Now we realize, love's not all it's supposed to be" - Billyv
"I do believe in you..." - Billyv
I heard this playing in a parked car today. It's like an omen at exactly the same time I decided to change some things in my life. - Britgirl
This is the wrong iTunes link for the intended submission - Billyv
Though I also love a live concert version by The Allman Brothers Band, I believe it was 12/3/2011 - Billyv
Don't give up the ship! Never say die! We have only just begun to fight! Win one for the Gipper! We shall fight on the beaches.. we shall fight in the hills; we shall never surrender...
"It ain't necessarily so..."
