  • Who Knows Where The Time Goes?
    Sandy Denny (6 January 1947 – 21 April 1978)

    Across the evening sky, all the birds are leaving
    But how can they know it's time for them to go?
    Before the winter fire, I will still be dreaming
    I have no thought of time

    For who knows where the time goes?
    Who knows where the time goes?

    Sad, deserted shore, your fickle friends are leaving
    Ah, but then you know it's time for them to go
    But I will still be here, I have no thought of leaving
    I do not count the time

    For who knows where the time goes?
    Who knows where the time goes?

    And I am not alone while my love is near me
    I know it will be so until it's time to go
    So come the storms of winter and then the birds in spring again
    I have no fear of time

    For who knows how my love grows?
    Who knows where the time grows?


  • Pacing The Cage
    "I was just, I mean there was a lot about the way I was living at the time that just wasn't working and I was really feeling that and that's pretty much the song. You know, I don't think those feelings were unique to me, or unique to that time and place, they're, they're feelings that everybody, I think, well as its says in the song: sooner or later it's going to get ya. Um, hopefully not for long and not often, you know but...."



  • Dignity
    "I will never, ever give a woman my dignity. When a woman is taking advantage of my kindness, when she is taking me for granted, when she thinks that her mere presence is enough for me, I will walk away. Absolutely no woman can treat me in any other way than I believe I should be treated. No matter where I am in life, no matter whom I’m with, dignity will be a part of my spirit, until the very end."



  • Dignity, Part III - Finale
    Eric Anderson is another one of those brilliant singer-songwriters of the 60's. This decade remains the pinnacle of creative output of the American/British folk tradition. I could name them all, their great songs, and probably have in the 10 years of this blog, but this post is about Eric Anderson and in particular one of his songs that except for Dylan's body of work, sits right atop that entire sphere of artistic expression. My third and final post on Dignity.



  • The Softer Side Of Dignity
    Dignity Lesson #1 - Don't listen to songs on the radio.

    I first heard this song during my coming of age years of the 1960's in my home town of Detroit, Michigan. In those days, I would go to bed with a transistor radio next to my pillow, listening to new music out of Great Britain (aka The British Invasion) from WBZ in Boston, music that had not yet made it to the Motown-laden airwaves of Detroit. If ever a song would set a romantic path for the rest of my life, it was this one. What makes it such a remarkable piece of music is how that same sense of longing that I felt on listening to it for the first time on that anonymous night in a long forgotten 1960's Michigan, can be revisited, appreciated, and even felt, 47 years later on some soon to be forgotten summer's night in the Arizona desert, circa 2014.
