T.O. is Toronto Ontario

The Shoe (Neil Cotton)

Bars and Taverns, watering holes
Too many to name in old T.O.
More'n a stiff drink is to be had
Live music lives most good some grand

An Iconic venue is among the bunch
Famous for the acts that it booked
Including Willie, Johnny and June
When they were punks at the old Horseshoe.

The Horseshoe Tav’ern
Near Spadina on Queen
Drew the best to
The Toronto scene
A string of who’s who
Performed at the Shoe.

To claim it’s cool is all well and good
Marquee artists will prove it’s true
Loretta, The Band, and Blue Rodeo
The Horseshoe hosted Stompin’ Tom shows

Surprise appearances have taken place
The Stones, Bryan Adams and Mellissa Ethridge

This is good and provocative. The Toronto chamber of commerce ought to use it. I noticed the verbs are in past tense, is the horseshoe no longer around?

Yes it is still there but the most renowned names, for me, were from the past. There is more that could be added about local Indie, but the chorus is really about the past that made it famous. Your point is valid; maybe i could slip something in to bring it to the present...it opened in 1947...has had expected ownership & physical changes , but still exists.
The first verse alludes to it. then switches

Rated C? Canadian? Thanks for the warning Neil. I sent the women and children out of the room. LOL

This should play well in T. O., if you've got a good Melody and tempo. Try it out on a live audience and let us know.


There will always be another song to be written. Someone will write it. Why not you? www.garyeandrews.com

Not sold on what it will be....maybe country honky tonk or rockabilly as that was the sound back in the day.
I'll get back to you.

Just Plain Quotes
"A lot of people will tell you that preparation is what will make you successful. But I think that people misunderstand exactly what that means sometimes. The type of preparation you need most is the kind that allows you to instantly seize an opportunity, change your course based on a momentary circumstance, and grab hold of the totally unexpected when it happens, and allow it to take you for the ride of your life! That is the kind of preparation that can lead to the most enjoyable type of success." -Brian Austin Whitney
