Gordon Lightfoot, Canadian singer song-writer ... appearances and interviews about as rare as J.D. Salinger.
If you could read my mind, love, what a tale my thoughts would tell. Just like an old time movie, about a ghost from a wishing-well. In a castle dark, or a fortress strong, with chains upon my feet, you'll know that ghost is me, and I will never be set free as long as I'm a ghost that you can't see!
And it was circa 1969-70 because I was still in the UK ... and the album it came from might have been something like: Sit Down Stranger (?)

It's official, I'm a karma-slag ...

(Myself, I'm also fond of 'In The Early Morning Rain')

Doesn't sound like you know much about him at all

I'll give you a bonus point if you can tell me what key it's in without looking it up . . .

If it's Gordon Lightfoot, it's in the key of gay.

You're actually very close to the correct answer, ironically!

No ... just the transvestite's chastity belt.

Hmmm? Can't say I know what key, but you're the musician, not I.

Been known to put my hand to the organ now & again, but just for pleasure.

Careful now, next thing you'll be saying you like a twang on the one string bass and I'm afraid then I'll have to report you . . .

I'm disappointed in you, reading some thing into a perfectly innocent remark ...

You've been around Eb too long!

If that was a perfectly innocent remark, it was also a perfectly phrased one as well . . .

Cheers, it took me from when you posted the question until now to come up with such innocence!
