"The Lonely End of the Rink" as written by Robert Baker, Gordon Downie, Johnny Fay, Paul Langlois and Gordon Sinclair....
I looked up and you were there
Just sitting there all alone
Holding your fist in the air
Like, if you need me you're on your own

You drove me home through a snowy tomb
I fell asleep in my seat
I had the dream of having no room
You were there just staring at me

At the lonely end of the rink, you and me
At the lonely end of the rink, you and me

Oh to join the rush
As the season builds

I hear your voice 'cross a frozen lake
a voice from the end of a leaf
saying, 'you won't die of a thousand fakes
or be beaten by the sweetest of dekes'

At the lonely end of the rink, you and me
At the lonely end of the rink, the lonely end of the rink

Oh to join the rush
as the season builds
Jump into the rush
As the seasons build

You drove me home through a snowy gloom
And I fell asleep in my seat
Then I had the dream of having no room
You were there just staring at me

At the lonely end of the rink, you and me

    General CommentThis song is about when Gord was growing up he was a goalie, the "Lonely end of the Rink" refers to the goalie's end as the play is at the other end of the rink. You and me refers to his father cheering him on.

    General CommentI heard Gord talking about this song on i believe it was "The Hour" on CBC. Apparently his brother was a goalie growing up and Gord would always sit down at his end of the rink away from all the parents and spectators. In the verses "You drove me home through a snowy gloom and I fell asleep in my seat, then I had the dream of having no room, you were there just staring at me" He is talking about playing against his brother having "No room" to shoot the puck
