And She Don’t Always Say What She Really Means


Damn, I love Reddit.

Gordon Lightfoot, in an IAmA, today.

Well, I had this girlfriend one time, and I was at home working, at my desk, working at my songwriting which I had been doing all week since I was on a roll, and my girlfriend was somewhere drinking, drinking somewhere.  So I was hoping that no one else would get their hands on her, because she was pretty good lookin’!  And that’s how I wrote the song “Sundown,” and as a matter of fact, it was written just around Sundown, just as the sun was setting, behind the farm I had rented to use as a place to write the album.
