Hi Mudcatters --

Here are the lyrics for Mirabeau Bridge as I wrote them --

Mirabeau Bridge
© Sam Larkin

I went down to see the mornin
When the shutters all were drawn
And the sidewalk tables empty
And the laughing voices gone
And from some upstairs window
In the blue and grey of dawn
Came the faded sound of somebody
Who played my song

CHORUS:
I had a dream and I gave it a name
The name that I gave it was your name
I had a dream and I gave it a name
The name that I gave it was your

I was fighting phantom windmills
Made of nothin left to do
But live among the shadows
Of the days I made it through
With lies and false pretences
That tomorrow would be new
And it was 'cause just like a dream
I discovered you

REPEAT CHORUS

And the Mirabeau Bridge is crowded
With the ones who love the night
And the river laughing endlessly
Like the wild café life
Full of words from every language
Across the candle-light
As it shines like love in the eyes
That I meet tonight

END

That's it. Cheers, Sam

One of my favorites, Sam, since the first time I heard it at Folk At The Forum in Cobourg's Victoria Hall. It seems to have entered the repertoire of many Ontario performers.

It doesn't just have beautiful lyrics - it has a beautiful tune, too. Glad to have the really truly original words, Sam. Thanks!

My apologies. Sam Larkin passed away Monday, October 28, 2013. His beautiful song Mirabeau Bridge is being sung by many today as we hear the news.

Here is a CBC link to both Sam and Ron Sexmith singing Mirabeau Bridge.
