Tall Buildings (London trip)

I was amazed by the many tall, glassy buildings that have become the skyscape of London. Many of the downtown streets were cordoned off for construction. Cranes were everywhere.

Everytime "tall buildings" comes to my mind, the song "In Tall Buildings" by John Hartford, sung by Gillian Welch comes to my mind. It begins:

Someday my baby, when I am a man,
and others have taught me
the best that they can
they'll sell me a suit
they’ll cut off my hair
and send me to work in tall buildings

So it's goodbye to the sunshine
goodbye to the dew
goodbye to the flowers
and goodbye to you
I'm off to the subway
I must not be late
I’m going to work in tall buildings
