Some say a heart is just like a wheel

Folk singer Kate McGarrigle dies

Neil McCormick: Kate McGarrigle, death of a matriarch

Lyrics and guitar chords to the McGarrigles’ song “Heart Like a Wheel”, which I’ve loved for decades and which gets stuck in my head often.


About songdogmi

I'm a longhaired almost-hippie stuck in the inner suburbs of a major rust-belt metropolis who's thoughtful, creative, and kind of geeky. In exchange for a paycheck I run around in a cubicle maze most days. When I escape, I play music, hang out in coffee houses, dink around on the computer, take naps, and think I should be off in the woods somewhere. Every once in a while I get in my car and drive far, far away, though I've always come back so far.

  1. I just found out about this. So, so sad.

      Yeah, I know. I thought of you when I read about it. It is quite a bummer.

      • There’s a fund set up at the McGill University Health Centre which was apparently started by Kate herself to benefit cancer research in Montreal. It’s a good thing to do for remembrance, I think, and I’ll probably donate something next pay period (this month was Haiti, and I forsee more stuff for Haiti in the future as well).
