about

One of my earliest musical influences was Gordon Lightfoot. I am a forever fan of his music. I think he is one of the best songwriters in the world.

lyrics

Rows of lights in a circle of steel
Where you place your bets on a great big wheel
High windows flickering’ down through the snow
A time you know, sights and sounds all the people goin’ round
Everybody’s in step with the season

A child is born to a welfare case, where the rats run around like they own the place
The room is chilly the building is old, but that’s how it goes
The doctors found on his welfare rounds, and he comes and he leaves on the double

Deck the halls was the song they played in the flat next door where they shout all day
She tips her Gin bottle back till it’s gone, the child is strong
A week a day, they will take it away, for they know about all her bad habits

2nd intro

Christmas dawns, and the snow lifts up, when the sun hits the handle of her rail room cup
She hides her face in her hands for awhile
Say’s look here child, your fathers pride was his means to provide
And he served him three years for that reason

Repeat 1st verse
