Gordon Lightfoot: Early Morning Rain

Gordon Lightfoot performs "Early Morning Rain," in Chicago in 1979. The singer and songwriter wrote the song in 1964 and recorded it in 1966.

Gordon Lightfoot, a Canadian institution, sings songs, as a balladeer does, about things that touch the common man. The words and the sentiments they express are straightforward, and are applicable today as they were almost 50 years ago for the many left behind. It has been recorded by many noted artists, including Elvis Presley, Bob Dylan and Paul Weller.  You can hear the version by Peter, Paul & Mary here.
