Have you ever seen a sight as beautiful
as that of the rain-soaked purple
of the white birch in spring?

Have you ever felt more fresh or wonderful
than on a warm fall night
under a Mackerel sky,
the smell of grapes on the wind?

Well I have known all these things
and the joys that they can bring
And I'll share them all for a cup of coffee
and to wear your ring

Have you ever had the pleasure of watching
a quiet winter's snow slowly gathering
like simple moments adding up?

Have you ever satisfied a gut feeling
to follow a dry dirt road that's beckoning you
to the heart of a shimmering summer's day?

Well I have known all these things
and the joys that they can bring
And I'll share them all for a cup of coffee
and to wear your ring

And I don't know how I survived those days
before I held your hand
Well I never thought that I would be the one
to admit that the moon and the sun
shine so much more brighter when
seen through two pairs of eyes than
when seen through just one

Have you ever seen a sight as beautiful
as a face in a crowd of people
that lights up just for you?

Have you ever felt more fresh or wonderful
as when you wake
by the side of that boy or girl
who has pledged their love to you?

Well I have known all these things
and the joys that they can bring
And now every morning there's a cup of coffee
and I wear your ring

Just wanna dance...or at least sway!
 
Song is very sexy. Just like the singer.
A wonderful group of artists, this track is unusually upbeat for them? Still love the generous restraint they put into everything. Achingly cool.

Also, I have a FEVER! And the ONLY prescription  is MORE COWBELL!
Never listened to the Cowboy Junkies. This sounds like 10,000 Maniacs from the In Your Tribe album... which makes it not unpleasant, but not exactly essential.
came here expressly to see the will ferrell gif that i somehow knew would be front and centre
Someone already spilled the  java beans,
sounds like an early soul music, Stax guitar twang in there

Everybody in my mushrooming multitude of churches loves this song...

 
Been hearing way too much of the Cowboy Junkies lately. I don't think they deserve as much play as RP gives them. Great band, they have some good albums, but why are they played so much when so many other deserving artists aren't on the playlist?
More Cow bells

Nice groovin' song. Love Margo Timmins' voice.


Everybody in my hotel room loves this song...
