Story

gabriola november 1973

yes it would snow sometimes

and even stay for a couple of wonderfully quiet days

but mostly it would rain rain rain

and then rain some more

Lyrics

the early morning sunshine's

come to chase the night time

the early birds are singing

and i'm singing my song

it's a day for being lazy

and i'm feeling kind of crazy

there's fish in the forest

and trees in the sea

 

it's good to be back on the island

see the folks i've been missing

i love you all and don't take me lightly

here's a song to let you know

 

it's a gabriola day

i can feel it in the way

that my heart's going in circles round

the sun in the sky

don't you know it makes me high

 

there's snow on the meadow

it's falling past my window

living on the farm well

it sure is mellow

sitting round the fire

i can feel me getting higher

love to see you smiling

won't you come visit soon

 

it's good to be back on the island

see the folks i've been missing

i love you all and don't take me lightly

here's a song to let you know

 

it's a gabriola day

i can feel it in the way

that my heart's going in circles round

the sun in your eyes

don't you know it makes me fly
