about

This song brings back so many memories for me! Driving around in my Volvo station wagon...the utter poverty of my early 20's, and listening to great songs at top volume while dancing unreservedly. I had never played it live till a gig at the Yellow Door in Montreal supporting my friend Noelle...but it lit a bit of a fire in me to do my own special version someday. Hope you enjoy it!

lyrics

I've never been too good with names
If the cellar door was open
I could never stay away
I guess it's probably not my place
But either/or I'm hoping for a simple way of saying

It's a shame about Ray
In the stone under the dust his name is still engraved
Some things need to go away
It's a shame about Ray

If I make it through today
I'll know tomorrow not to leave my feelings out on display
I'll put the cobwebs back in place
I've never been to good with names but I remember faces

It's a shame about Ray
In the stone under the dust his name is still engraved
Some things need to go away
It's a shame about Ray
