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
