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

Day 13

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
