  • Take Us Home , Alan Doyle Band, Centre In The Square, Kitchener ON

    A Montana winter storm, a slow border crossing, and a tour-bus breakdown (the 3rd such of this Winter 2019 Come Out With Me Tour leg) were no match for Alan's determination to make it to his nearly-sold-out gig in the Eric Harvie Theatre at the Banff Centre. Racing across the Alberta prairies into the setting sun, documenting their progress via tweets that were being followed by the crowd patiently waiting at the venue (and at the nearby pubs) for their delayed arrival, Alan and his BBB swept into Banff around 9 pm and the show began around 9:30, two hours later than the original start time and worth every single minute of that wait. And then some. Having to leave part of their gear behind in order to make it at all, they put on an intimate, stripped-down, acoustic show featuring the Alan Doyle Bus Breakdown Quartet (Alan, Cory Tetford, Kendel Carson and Todd Lumley) - no bass or drums, though Kris MacFarlane did make it briefly up onto the stage in search of his drum kit. It was a show played with heart and soul and every single of bit of energy these weary travellers had left to offer, an energy that was given right back to them by all the folks (and even with the lengthy delay on a weeknight, nearly every seat in the sold-out house was still full, until everyone stood up to dance, that is) who had come to sing along and share an evening out with them. There was so much heartfelt gratitude at the end of this night, when Alan performed his brand new song, that there were some eyes in that house that did not remain dry, onstage and off.

All done with his awesome Beautiful Beautiful Band, and also with ace singer/songwriter Kelly Prescott (backed up by the impressively skilled Mitch Jay) opening and sharing the stage for the encores. All cheered on by an enthusiastic, nearly-sold-out (quite the feat during the Scotties Tournament) crowd. Can't imagine a better way to begin what is clearly going to be a special tour - attendance at which is highly recommended if at all possible.

    This is my hand
    Take it now it’s yours to keep
    These are my eyes
    Look into them and you’ll see
    How a rainbow needs the rain
    Or it will never shine again
    It’s the same for you and me

    These are my footsteps
    Falling surely next to yours
    This is the moment
    That we’ve been waiting for
    It’s our story now to tell
    Raise the curtain, ring the bell
    And open up the doors

    Hey, altogether we will be
    We’re forever you and me
    Hey, the sun will show us where to go
    Love will give us heart and soul
    And take us home

    These are my arms
    Come to them when you’re cold
    This is my shoulder
    Rest your head and dream of home
    For there’ll nights and there’ll be days
    It seems a long, long ways away
    But we’ll make it now I know

    This is my song
    It’s the only one I know
    This is my heart
    Take it with you when you go
    I wanna thank you for the show
    No one wants to dance alone
    I’ll see you down the road

    Alan chose this True Story song (which can be found on the Safe Upon The Shore Great Big sea album, and which was co-written with GBS's Bob Hallett) for the first encore at his sold-out Chicago gig at the City Winery, a song that explains one of the reasons there's so much good in the US - it's because of all those Newfoundland women who fell in love and came home with their Yankee Sailors - while also telling the poignant tale of the fellas who were left behind.

    It doesn't take much to make the skilled hands of a Master Magician. Here, Alan hits a couple of technical glitches, lyrical and instrumental, in doing the final song of the evening at the Kingston show, and he turns those glitches into a Moment of Pure Magic as he first invites Laura, an impeccably-attired-for-the-occasion gal from the audience, up to sit stage-edge and sing the first few verses of Take Us Home with him...then, when his instrument will not cooperate, he turns to his cordless mic and finishes his song all the way back and forth across the stage, singing to each and every soul present. Magic. It is always such a thrill to see a Master at work. Grand Theatre, Kingston ON. February 22, 2018

    John Mellencamp's Paer In Fire, Lyrics
    She had a dream
    And boy it was a good one
    So she chased after her dream
    With much desire
    But when she get too close
    To her expectations
    Well the dream burned up
    Like paper in fire
    Paper in fire
    Stinking up the ashtrays
    Paper in fire
    Smoking up the alleyways
    Who's to say the way
    A man should spend his days
    Do you let them smolder
    Like paper in fire
    He wanted love
    With no involvement
    So he chased the wind
    That's all his silly life required
    And the days of vanity
    Went on forever
    And he saw his days burn up
    Like paper in fire
    Paper in fire
    Stinking up the ashtrays
    Paper in fire
    Smoking up the alleyways
    Who's to say the way
    A man should spend his days
    Do you let them smolder
    Like paper in fire
    There's a good life
    Right across the green fields
    And each generation
    Stares at it from afar
    But we keep no check
    On our appetites
    So the green fields turn to brown
    Like paper in fire
    Paper in fire
    Stinking up the ashtrays
    Paper in fire
    Smoking up the alleyways
    Who's to say the way
    A man should spend his days
    Do you let them smolder
    Like paper in fire

  • Laying Down to Perish - Alan Doyle Lyrics


    Song: Laying Down to Perish
    Artist: Alan Doyle
    Thumbnail: John Turner, Fishermen at Sea

    To read the real story, go to

    Or just read it here:

    Alan: Great story – true story - that happened on Fogo Island, which is a small island on then northeast of Newfoundland. And on the northeast of that island, there is nothing but ocean and wind and cold until you hit Greenland. In 1917, four guys went out on the ice and got stranded and they realized because of the wind and fog that they were never going to get back in. And they were terrified – we suppose – that their wives and family would never know what had happened to them. So they took one of their mariner’s tools, a wooden-handled gaff, and they carved ‘laying down to perish’ in it along with their names and sent it adrift figuring it would eventually wash ashore and be found by the families, which it was. I thought that was one of the most selfless acts I’d ever heard of. So I wrote the song about it.
