Happy Birthday Gord

Happy Birthday Gord, you died as you lived, “no dress rehearsal..
Ahead by a Century, tragically, Tragically Hip,
“It couldn’t come at a worse time,
locked in the trunk of a car” singing, “New Orleans Is Sinking,
and I don’t wanna swim.. let me out! Courage, my word.”

You took us on a poetic, musical cross country trip,
you died as you lived, “no dress rehearsal,
Ahead By A Century”, tragically, Tragically Hip.
“It couldn’t come at a worse time.. locked in the trunk of a car” singing,
“New Orleans Is Sinking, and I don’t wanna swim.. let me out!
Courage, my word.”

Gordon Downie lead singer of The Tragically Hip
(Feb. 6th 1964 – Oct. 17th, 2017)
