All day the mountains rose behind a veil of smoke from burning fields
And road dust dyeing black skin bronze and the road rolling like a rough sea
It's quiet now, just crickets and a dog fight somewhere in the far away
In my heart I hold your photograph
And the thought of you comes on like the feel of the coming rains

Hot breeze ran its fingers through the long grass of a thatched roof eave
They stuck me in the only chair they had while they cooked cassava
And a luckless hen
They asked for one well three lanterns and 200 litres of fuel and
I said, "Who, me?"
And the time for planting's coming soon
And the thought of you comes on like the feel of the coming rains

In the town neon flickers in the ruins
Seven crows swoop past the luscious moon
If I had wings like those there'd be no waiting
I'd come panting to your door and slide like smoke into your room

All day the mountains rose behind a veil of smoke from burning fields
And road dust dyeing black skin bronze and the road rolling like a rough sea
It's quiet now, just crickets and a dog fight somewhere in the far away

In my heart I hold your photograph
And the thought of you comes on like the feel of the coming rains

And the time for planting's coming soon
And the thought of you comes on like the feel of the coming rains

Bruce is just a caring articulate individual something eternal yet passing about him 



Very well paradoxically put Garsh!

RP has been playing a lot of Bruce Cockburn lately. And that’s fine with me. 
For all you fifth-graders snickering over Bruce's surname, it is an ancient Scottish name derived from a geographic feature. In English it would be 'Rooster Creek': 'Cock' is rooster (duh), and a 'Burn' is creek.
The name dates to the 1200's or so, with myriad spellings. 'Cockburn' is the modern British spelling, while 'mericans use 'Coburn'.
The character made famous by John Wayne, 'Rooster Cogburn' is an amalgam of people Charles Portis encountered in Arkansas and Oklahoma, where I have distant relatives.

Bruce Cockburn is a favorite of a friend ... and I've tried to get into him for the sake of our friendship, seeing as he wants to play BC music anytime we're together ... but I find Bruce to be ... not very good, and in fact, downright unenjoyable. It's his voice primarily. Just lackluster. Dull as arithmetic, as the saying goes.




I can feel with you. I also tend to find his music not very interesting.

Re: "Bruce Cockburn is not very good."  You really should consider rephrasing that to read "I really don't care for his music", which is at least a valid statement.  
The man is a brilliant guitarist & songwriter, and bears no resemblance to "not very good".

Agreed. Thank you.

Ah. Living vicariously via Bruce Cockburn yet again. The only way to travel.



"Cockburn was booed off the stage of Le Hibou during his first concert at the famous and now former coffee house in Ottawa's historic Byward Market district."

He was from Ottawa. So was Paul Anka. All OTTAWA artists are booed in their hometown

You forgot to mention he is a wicked guitarist.  His concerts range from instrumental, to acoustic, to rockin' electric all in the same evening. If you get a chance, check out a show.  You will not be disappointed.


A reasonable question.

Bruce Cockburn (pronounced Coburn) hails from English Canada.  He has played a range of acoustic folk to electric rock over the years.

He is popular in Canada and enjoys a strong almost cult-like following outside in the USA and to a lesser extent in Europe.  

His concerts are or certainly can be top notch.  He started off as a bit of a Jesus freak and then relaxed over the years.   I never saw it but apparently Bruce Cockburn was booed off the stage of Le Hibou during his first concert at the famous and now former coffee house in Ottawa's historic Byward Market district.

Bruce's prose can range all over the place but he might be best known for strong emotions with regards to human rights and geopolitical issues like the US-financed contras in Nicaragua.  

He was once a favourite interview on CBC radio (the state-owned broadcaster).  He can be very earnest and appear to lack a sense of humour.  

Bruce speaks to a large number of Canadians and likely Americans too who don't care too much about who is running the economy but do care about powerful entities pushing around the poor and the weak.   There can be a strong social justice undercurrent to his prose.

BRIlLIANT ~ simply 1st Class. Brilliant Gorgeous Vocal Tone - Gord’s Gold-esque Brilliant Humour - the streak ? Canada Here I Come - by Matt Maurer
Bruce's time in Nicaragua was very influential on him and his music. 

Also wanted to add that my mom knew him when he was the "problem teenager down the street." Parents of teenagers everywhere take heart.

This song reminds me of when Dewey Cox sings Bob Dylan......

It's only pronounced Coburn because, well, Cock Burn.
Love when I hear singers from other countries
This song stopped me in my tracks the first time I heard it. Went and downloaded it, listen to it when I'm in a contemplative mood.

The vibraphone is what makes it.

Absolutely.   Excellent guitar playing skills.  
It's worth listening to his album"Speechless", which is just his very impressive guitar playing. 
Liked Bruce when he first showed up strong and still like him now.

Canadians also have a certain pride in our artists, like BC that stay home to hone their craft and achieve some success doing it, rather than just head to the USA to'make it big!'

It is some form of unfortunate irony that if he were from the US—or even moved here like Joni or Neil, he'd have been a massive star. Then he ups and moves to the Bay Area this year. He's as good as they come.
Hard to believe I've been listening to and enjoying Brice Cockburn since In the Falling Dark, released in 1976. Good stuff all along.

I guess if I had a last name spelled "Cockburn" I'd insist it was pronounced as "Coeburn" too.
love a lot of cockburn's music - never heard this tune vibraphone, bruce? for real
You know, Bruce has aged pretty gracefully (musically speaking). I first stumbled on "In the Falling Dark" (76?) and was amazed by his guitar work and his interesting take on Xtianity. When you consider his output from there on out to maybe "Big Circumstance" in what, '89, the guy was just a force of nature as far as poetry and music go--not to mention that he fused it with a kind of smoldering political rage that really put the "Powers That Be" into stark perspective. I like some of the recent stuff too but frankly, you have to go back to that other era to really appreciate his genius.
What an amazing song. I have heard it before on RP but really listened to it today. . . stellar.
If I had a rocket launcher, I wouldn't listen to this tune... He's done much better. Why pick this one to play, Bill?

No. And do you mean "allusive"?
No, sorry, not pathetic in the least. Complex arrangement (how many other rockers do you know working a friggin' xylophone into the mix?), nice swinging rhythm, and BC's voice is no more "boring" than Dylan, Springsteen, or many other off-key masters. pyxxel wrote:

Cockburn is so able to evoke all the senses when he describes things. I just love his music.

All hail Bruce, now and forever. This song is gorgeous.
