SONGS: -- Unknown Title #3 -- (unreleased) mid to late 1960's
Editor's Note: The only lyrics we have for this song are:
"Meanwhile inside the city hall
The amateurs are fighting all the time
About such things as protocol
And weighty matters like the limestone quarry
Should it be thought of as a mine?
While small boys throw pebbles at the sign"
-- from the Ottawa Citizen, July 1968, by Suzanne Appel,
in which the author excerpts lyrics from a Cockburn song, but doesn't
say what song it's from. Submitted by Rob Caldwell.
