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

Day 16

From the 1973 Sundown album, a Christmas song that’s sad, but with a comment on the times that haven’t changed much.

Christmas dawns and the snow lets up

And the sun hits the handle of her heirloom cup

She hides her face in her hands for awhile

Says look here child

Your father’s pride was his means to provide

And he’s servin’ three years for that reason

Rows of lights in a circle of steel

Where you place your bets on a great big wheel

Circle of Steel, Gordon Lightfoot
