My college friend Fran sent me this via Facebook. (Thanks!) Since I’m not playing out these days, I’m missing out on performing this in public in commemoration. So I thought I’d share this here. Gord sings it better, anyway.
My grampa used to work the boats, did I ever mention that? No, it’s not just a song lyric.* My mother’s father was a cook on freighters that sailed from Duluth/Superior to Detroit and Toledo and beyond. There’s a story in there, if I could ever really pull together the genealogy.
* “Take Me Down to the Lake,” from my album Another Road. I should put that on ReverbNation, maybe.
