This song is in the running for my favorite song on this album. Li ...

The Dutchman's not the kind of man
Who keeps his thumb jammed in the dam
That holds his dreams in,
But that's a secret that only Margaret knows.

When Amsterdam is golden in the summer,

From what I could find, it looks this one had it's start in the 1920's, and has had quite a few people cover it through the years, including none other than John Gorka. Eight-bar blues, with a JG twi ...

Trouble in mind, I'm blue
Oh, but I won't be, blue always
Cause the sun's gonna shine
In my backdoor someday

I'm gonna lay my head down
On that cold, cold, track
Let that 2:19 train come and s ...

I'm not sure if JG had someone in mind when he wrote this, or if this is just a general statement about all the cruel folks who have prospered by beating others into submission or worse. Whatever the ...

They live by the sword but die of old age
They should spend their last wretched days in a cage
Not surrounded by comfort and pawns of their ilk
Their final few statements come sounding through silk ...

After a long hiatus from the forum, I'm back, and ready to pick up the baton and cross the finish line that is the review all of John Gorka's songs. I wish I could have come back on a tune I really l ...

I hear you T.R., I"m guessing all the 'views' that each topic get are not real people, or there are a lot of people that aren't inspired to write anything. Oh, well. I'm pressing forward on the ...

Some songs grab you right away, and some don't. I think this was one of the last songs on the album that I took the time to sit down with and really get to know and appreciate. Maybe it was my loyal ...

The rainís too hard. The streams too high.
Too many people barely getting by.
Some havenít yet paid for last winterís heat.
Labor Day is done and the ends donít meet.

I know this was written by William Stafford, but it sounds like something John might have done. I like that it makes you think a little deeper, reveals its message in an unconventional way. Definite ...

This is the field where the battle did not happen,
where the unknown soldier did not die.
This is the field where grass joined hands,
where no monument stands,
and the only heroic thing is the sky ...

I look to see the wildflowers blooming and wonder why they seem so plain
Springtime rides all the brown hills over, young birds sing in the silver rain
I think of you as the night rolls by,
