Song swaying in the air
I'm hand dancing in your hair
You're hand dancing in my soul

Known comments by Bruce Cockburn about this song, by date:

  • 1986:

    "I was in a short lived basement bar in Toronto, listening to Beverly Glenn-Copeland sing, accompanied by Dido on percussion. I wrote down these words on a napkin, went home and tried to get something out of the guitar that would approximate the beautiful floating quality of Beverly's music."
    -- from "All The Diamonds" songbook, edited by Arthur McGregor, OFC Publications 1986. Submitted by Rob Caldwell.

  • Spring 1993

    James Jensen: "Hand Dancing" on "Joy Will Find A Way" is a fun piece with alot of that solid thumb bass and lead on top picking.

    BC: That was sort of an instrumental piece with lyrical accompaniment
    -- from an Interview by James Jensen at Sunset Sound, Los Angeles, circa Spring 1993.
