BIG AL's JOVIAL JUKEBOX #28: "Old Dan's Records" by GORDON LIGHTFOOT, 1972



 
 
Albie's Note: From his 1972 album of the same title, Gord's very cool and touching tribute to friendship and the collecting of old vinyl records
 
"High above the fireplace,
There's a smile on old Dan's face!"
 
'Nuff said!

Get out old Dan's records
Get out old Dan's records
We will dance the whole night long
It's fun to play the old time songs
If old Dan could see us now
I know he'd be so proud

Bring out old Dan's records
Bring out old Dan's records
I remember my Aunt Bea
She'd dance with Dan till two or three
If old Dan could see her now
I know he'd shout out loud

Dig out old Dan's records
Bring out old Dan's records
We're all here, we've all got dates
We'll dance all night to the 78s
If old Dan could see us now
I know he'd be so proud
If old Dan was with us still
I know he'd come around

Get out old Dan's records
Dig out old Dan's records
Back to 1935
The foxtrot, jitterbug and jive
If old Dan could see us now
I know he'd be so proud

Get out old Dan's records
Bring out old Dan's records
High above the fireplace
There's a smile on old Dan's face
If old Dan could see us now
I know he'd be so proud
If old Dan was with us still
I know he'd come around

 
PEACE

I don't think I've heard that one. Thanks for playing it.
