From 1993, a song from the Waiting for You album. It’s a little sad, a little haunting, a lot wistful. Gordon Lightfoot sang it at one of the most recent concerts I’ve attended. I hope he’ll sing it this time.
Will ya get that restless yearning when you hear the wicked blast
Of a specter from the past
Of a cold diesel rolling down a road that’s built to last
Still I get that restless feeling when I hear a whistle blast
See an image from the past
Of an old schooner flyin’ down a sky that’s overcast
Restless, Gordon Lightfoot
