Gordon Lightfoot first recorded this song back in 1968. He had moved out of their house, leaving his wife and kids behind, and was renting an apartment on Alexander Street behind Maple Leaf Gardens. Gordon now refers to this song as being about “apartment hopping”, going from one apartment to another to have an affair. He re-recorded the song in 1978 and released it as a single. This is a cover of “The Circle is Small”.
