For the Roses

Cornell University - Ithica, NY
February 3, 1974

Joni shares with the audience some background for her song For The Roses. Her comedic delivery begins with her reasons for moving back to Canada and while knitting a sweater/coat, an Arbutus tree's thick leaves (aka madrone) outside her cabin door were clanking together in the cold, sounding like applause.
