Aww man RIP to a true Canadian Icon. Sad.

He wrote a letter to his fans shortly before his death, to be released after he passed away:



Hello friends, I want all my fans, past, present, or future, to know that without you, there would have not been any Stompin' Tom.

It was a long hard bumpy road, but this great country kept me inspired with its beauty, character, and spirit, driving me to keep marching on and devoted to sing about its people and places that make Canada the greatest country in the world.

I must now pass the torch, to all of you, to help keep the Maple Leaf flying high, and be the Patriot Canada needs now and in the future.

I humbly thank you all, one last time, for allowing me in your homes, I hope I continue to bring a little bit of cheer into your lives from the work I have done.

Sincerely,

Your Friend always,

Stompin' Tom Connors

Best lyrics ever

Goodbye Jim & Jackie, goodbye John & May
We hate to see you leaving, bound for the USA
But if you don't believe your country should come before yourself
Ya can better serve your country, by living somewhere else

I know the times are changing, factories closing down
But if you stay and help us, we can turn these things around
But if you don't believe your country should come before yourself
Ya can better serve your country, by living somewhere else

And while our politicians, divde our presious land
We speak in French & English, but they still don't understand
If you don't believe your country should come before yourself
Ya can better serve your country, by living somewhere else

In a land that's short on heros, they trade our jobs away
And we don't need no zeros to come and help us save the day
So if you don't believe your country should come before yourself
Ya can better serve your country, by living somewhere else

And if you should find your heaven, where stars & stripes are flown
You'll learn to stand more proudly, than you ever stood back home
And they'll tell you that your country, must come before yourself
Or you'll have to serve your country by living somewhere else

So goodbye Jim & Jackie, goodbye John & May
We hope that you'll be happy, living in the USA
Cause if you don't believe your country should come before yourself
Ya can better serve your country, by living somewhere else

If you don't believe your country should come before yourself
Ya can better serve your country, by living somewhere else

I was at one of the Conan in Toronto shows (back in what—03, 04?) and Stompin' Tom was the closing guest. The look on La Bamba's face as Tom dragged his sheet of plywood out to centre stage, dropped it and start stompin' as he played "The Good 'ol Hockey Game" and every single person in the audience sang along...
