Something Very Special

She was something very special to me,
The kind of girl you'd like to see
In a movie or a rosary.
She could be straight-laced or homespun,
Or free and easy on the run,
She could be meek and mild or full of fun.
She liked country lanes and aeroplanes,
And cigarettes would make her strange,
And when she wanted you, she made it plain.
She would never say where she came from.
It didn't seem that she had anyone
To answer to or dwell upon.
She liked candlelight and good wine,
And I would call her any time
Of day or night, she didn't mind.
There was nothing that I wouldn't do
To prove to her my love was true,
And she gave to me a dream or two.
There were times when she would never appear,
For days on end she'd disappear,
But now the days have turned to years.
I was something she could use,
Like a good friend or a pair of shoes
Or any kind of good news.
Now the eastern sky is crimson and red
As I lie here in my lonely bed
And think about the things she said.
She said, "Darling, there will come a day
When I must run far away.
I will go, my love, but you must stay."
She departed in the early spring.
She didn't leave me anything
To follow or to find her.
She was something very special to me,
The kind of girl you'd like to see
In a movie or a rosary.

I'll say it over and over. Gordon Lightfoot is a national treasure in Canada. It is impossible to be a bigger star than he is. And that's been true for 50 or so years. He's pretty much on the same level as Maurice Richard.
I created this transcription myself. After listening to the song a few times, I referred to the booklet with the lyrics that came with the CD. There isn't a lot that differs, nothing significant, anyway.
The CD is from a German label named Bear Family Records, BCD 15699. Near as I can tell, the CD was released in 1992. It consists of both of Lightfoot's third and fourth albums, "Did She Mention My Name" and "Back Here on Earth," the former released in early 1968, the latter later that same year, both of which vinyl records I still own, although I have no idea if they are even playable any more. This song is from the former album.
Here's a link to Gord's biography http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gordon_Lightfoot and another to an article about the album http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Did_She_Mention_My_Name.
