for just a few:
"as the great unyielding concrete makes a city of my town" - from "Dublin In The Rare Old Times"
"it's snowin' in the city 'n the streets are brown 'n gritty" - Lightfoot's "Alberta Bound" (I think of this every time I drive through dirty winter slush!)
"love can't give you everything, but it gives you what you need" - Kate Wolf
"but bastards like Custer had it coming I hope he's burning still in hell" - "Sleeping Buffalo"
"and this morn as I crept to the barn, around 'bout half past three, there stood nursing on still trembling legs, one more small victory" - "Small Victory"
