Do you think Gordon Lightfoot actually sang the song, or is the "vocal" done by a really good bagpiper? Can't believe I paid good money for his music when I was young.

A great song and a fine rendition of it. I'd forgotten just how good Gordon Lightfoot is. Thanks.

My favorite Lightfoot song is Canadian Railroad Trilogy. A real heartfelt tune.

There was a time in this fair land when the railroads did not run
when the wild majestic mountains stood alone against the sun
long before the white man and long before the wheel
when the green dark forests were too silent to be real...

As it's Remembrance Day here I think "The Last Post" should apply. :d

I personally find that the Mary Ellen Carter is a much finer song of tough luck at sea.

I always liked "The Nervous Wreck of the Edna Fitzgerald".

But seriously, Lightfoot is good.
