50 Days, 50 Songs to the "50 Years on the Carefree Highway" concert.

Day 42

This song is from the Don Quixote album and is one I don’t think I’ve ever heard Gordon sing in concert (but I’ve only been to 5). It’s another favorite of mine and reflects, I’m sure, some of his own experiences earlier in his life.

I’m on my second cup of coffee

And I still can’t face the day

I’m thinking of a lady who got

Lost along the way

And if I don’t stop this trembling hand

From reaching from the phone

I’ll be reaching for the bottle, Lord

Before this day is done.

Second Cup of Coffee, Gordon Lightfoot
