Don't worry about those damn Canadians. Trudeau has them locked down tighter than a snare drum. You get the government you deserve eh? Oh, sorry.


Ya...you do. If you people elect that orange idiot again, I'm personally building a wall.

You should know all about that, living in Texas.  BTW, no one is locked down and Trudeau has no jurisdiction over our provincial health care. But you already knew that. 
Sounds like a duet is playing.

I am alternating between tears and the need to dance: discovering this song thanks to RP is like hearing Kotke's "6- and 12-string Guitar" (aka Armadillo) for the first time. Not only have I completely forgotten that Mr. Cockburn can wring the most out of a guitar, but I've forgotten the sunny days on the farm I summered at way back when. This album is like a time machine of emotion and this song is a magnificent delight of fresh cut alfalfa, hours spent disking a field, and learning more in 3 months than all of HS put together. Thanks RP! 




Listen to "Sunwheel Dance." Ben.
Brilliant guitarist! So talented!

That should be "Mister Damn Canadian." (And don't you just HATE their low murder rate and free health care?)

A damn fine Canadian and world citizen.

Aww, it's only syncopated syntax, you should try it.

I read somewhere he recorded this as he was a having creative block in coming up with new words for songs. Hard to believe but I am thankful as the entire CD is fantastic. If you ever see him live he starts with an instrumental to get loosened up

Reminds me a teensy bit of the Allman Brothers' "Little Martha." 
Ahhh, like a big breath of fresh country air.  : )
This entire cd is GREAT!
I really like his voice and songs... but this stuff sounds very nice too!
Thank you, Bill!
Just bought "Speechless"
Fantabuloso!
