    One of my favorites--an oldie. K D Lang has one of the best voices ever.

    The Sopranos finale only made this song even more legendary.

    Hard to believe this is a song written by Bob Dylan:

    Lyrics (but there is an extra verse in the version I uploaded...)
    This is an absolutely outstanding song from Mark Knopfler

    Lyrics (from the official release)
    The drinking dens are spilling out
    There's staggering in the square
    There's lads and lasses falling about
    And a crackling in the air
    Down around the dungeon doors
    The shelters and the queues
    Everybody's looking for
    Somebody's arms to fall into

    That's what it is
    It's what it is now

    There's frost on the graves and the monuments
    But the taverns are warm in town
    People curse the government
    And shovel hot food down
    Lights are out in the city hall
    The castle and the keep
    The moon shines down upon it all
    The legless and asleep

    And it's cold on the tollgate
    With the wagons creeping through
    Cold on the tollgate
    God knows what I could do with you

    That's what it is
    It's what it is now

    The garrison sleeps in the citadel
    With the ghosts and the ancient stones
    High on the parapet
    A Scottish piper stands alone
    And high on the wind
    The highland drums begin to roll
    And something from the past just comes
    And stares into my soul

    {extra verse - And the highwayman stands blowing on his fingers by the green
    I've walked inside his shoes before so I always buy his magazine
    He's with a local mystery with blood stains on her hands
    I like the way she winks at me but I leave her with the highwayman}

    And it's cold on the tollgate
    WITH A CALEDONIAN BLUES
    Cold on the tollgate
    God knows what I could do with you

    That's what it is
    It's what it is now
    What it is
    It's what it is now

    There's a chink of light, there's a burning wick
    There's a lantern in the tower
    Wee Willie Winkie with a candlestick
    Still writing songs in the wee wee hours
    On Charlotte Street I take
    A walking stick for my hotel
    The ghost of Dirty Dick
    Is still in search of Little Nell

    That's what it is
    It's what it is now
    It's what it is
    What it is now...

    This has always been, and always will be, my favorite song ever.
