YOU CAN PLAY ALONG WITH THE FIRST VIDEO IN GCEA TUNING!
Greg Keelor (the singer/songwriter) wrote this song about the early days of Blue Rodeo...playing hundreds of crappy gigs a year, and the hopelessness of wondering if they would be successful and if it was all worth it. He was specifically inspired to write this after a gig in Detroit, where the stage was on one side of a river, and the crowd was on the other...and every time a boat would pass by, the crowd wouldn't be able to see them, and vice versa. He said that it was one of the lowest lows they hit as a band, but in that point of desperation, he realized that, hey...if this is all just a waste of time, at least he's going through it with the rest of the guys...that if they really are lost...they are lost together.
