A Montreal Song - Bruce Cockburn

    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.
