  2. I always liked that song. I don’t know why. Perhaps it was the lyrics woven within the melody. Or the hurt expressed in the song. I just always liked that song. Maybe it was because at that time of my life I could identify with what Gordon was saying. Blessings and Peace.

    1. Thank you Claudia, Gordon wrote the song for the same reason: a happening in his own life. “If You Could Read My Mind” is a song that Gordon still performs today. Take care Claudia!🍂💗
