Gitche Gumee

By way of some offhand conversation came again upon the legend of the big lake they call Gitche Gumee.

It’s a helluva song and a true story.   It’s a true story.  Gordon Lightfoot.

  1. Arrgh! The cops blocked the video– that would’ve been good- nice try Sir!

  2. I missed it too. Damn. I love Lightfoot. And that song in particular.

  3. Lightfoot link fixed. Looks fine – loads freely. Large freighter.

  4. Whoa. Turned on the heat and still need a flannel shirt to cover the cold chills. What a wonderful tribute. And thanks, Avi, for the heads-up on it now working. Thanks for sharing this. My Dad was a Coast Guard man and never went long without being near the water in civilian life. He loved that song too.
