Ted from Australia Song that changed your life (38) RE: Song that changed your life 06 Jun 99


Uilleand,

I had been playing R& R for some not inconsiderable time when i move d to Darwin where Ii first heard someone sing Gordon Lightfoot's Canadian Railroad Trilogy at a music gathering (which incidentally was the start of the long running Darwin Folk Club)
The power of the lyrics completly bowled me over and turned me on to the folk scene, strarted me singing seriously (and for money :-) ) Now nearly30 years on the words of that song (even when i sing it) can almost reduce me to a quivering wreck, I aways put it at the end of a set because it drains me emotionally.

Regards Ted
