Jeff gordon dating
I have a good friend that is in the Canadian Music business.
A couple of years ago he mentioend that "Sundown" was Bruce Cockburn's nickname and it is written about an affair he had with Lightfoot's wife.
The two comments that were completely off the mark were the ones about rape and coke. I grew up in a town very close to where he was born and raised. They know what they do when they are all together..."but you have no clue as to what I would do if you two were meeting behind my back." (My backstairs). He's saying he thinks it's wrong when you narrowly avoid something bad and you think you're lucky for it but then you think "why do I feel lucky? The lyric "sometimes I think it's a shame when I get feeling better and I'm feeling no pain" may have multiple meanings.He also has two of my other faves in "If You Could Read My Mind," and "Carefree Highway," the latter written about the highway of the same name north of Phoenix, Arizona that goes to Carefree/Cave Creek, Arizona. This song is about when Gordon Lightfoot had the Good Brothers Band stay at his place in Ontario Canada..He was helping them get started and he caught one of the members having sex with his partner.
HE THROUGH THEM ALL OUT AND IT WAS HISTORY FROM THEREHey gang, while we're into interpretations, maybe this song was the antithesis to the song about "approaching lavender" (I think that was the title? He sings, "oh, approaching lavender...." which my mom said she thought was about a gay guy.
I still feel like a naughty little girl when I hear it... To me this song represents my time in the navy going over seas(asian countries) and meeting women at "buy me drinky" bars.
