50 Days, 50 Songs to the "Gordon Lightfoot: 50 Years on the Carefree Highway" Concert.

Day 21

A song from the sixties, about trying to get home and losing chances.

Well here I am with my hat in my hand

Standing on the broad highway will you give a ride

To a lonesome boy who missed the train last night.

I went in town for one last round and I gambled my ticket away

And the big steel rail won’t carry me home to the one I love.

Steel Rail Blues, Gordon Lightfoot
