Canadian singer Gordon Lightfoot has passed away at the age of 84.
Considering that when I saw him at the Marines Memorial Theater in San Francisco in 1979 his brain was apparently so drug-addled that they passed him a freshly tuned guitar for every number with a lyrics sheet taped to the top of the body, I'd say that he had a good long run.
Let me slip away on you
You've seen better days
The morning after blues
From my head down to my shoes
Let me slip away, slip away on you...
Into the arms of our merciful Savior.
