A Montreal Song

This song is by Bruce Cockburn and appears on the album Further Adventures Of (1978).

Watch video at YouTube
I turned on the TV war news
Just to look and wonder why.
Thunder crashed and red flash-flowers
Bloomed a nightmare in the sky.

So I went down to the cafe
Just to string myself along.
On the way I found some riches --
Played the jukebox, got this song.

While I sat there a ragged man came --
Bummed a coffee, talked awhile.
Told me stories full of wonder --
Left me laughing like a well-loved child.
