Sundown, Carefree Highway ‎(LP, Album). If 'If you could read my mind' gave him his break in the USA as a star this album cemented his success. The MOFI half speed version really does trump other versions for sound but frankly the original pressing is pretty damn fine too.

Gordon Lightfoot could write a tale, and most were true! I love 'The Wreck of Edmund Fitzgerald,' nonpareil! Kevin from TnI always wondered if "Sometimes I think it's a shame When I get feelin' better when I'm feelin' no pain" is a reference to getting over a hangover. Darcy from PaOh, so many know-it-alls!!!! How many of u personally spoke to Gordon and now are experts so that you can come on here and tell us what the meaning of this song is? Offer an opinion. And, state it as such. Fred from Laurel, Mdarch, SD, Cal - If you're looking into Gord's other works, I recommend the album, Summertime Dream. It's more similar to this song, Sundown, than are his early works, like Early Mornin Rain, which I also like, and was covered by just about every major folk-style artist in the late 60's.

I can see her lyin' back in her satin dress In a room where ya do what ya don't confess Sundown ya better take care If I find you been creepin' 'round my back stairs Sundown ya better take care If I find you been creepin' 'round my back stairs She's been lookin' like a queen in a sailor's dream. And she don't always say what she really means Sometimes I think it's a shame When I get feelin' better when I'm feelin' no pain Sometimes I think it's a shame When.
