Best Gordon Lightfoot Songs

Well, I may be reaching a bit here- writing a Gordon Lightfoot post on my Florida Keys blog- but he is playing in Fort gordon-lightfootLauderdale on March 11 at the Parker Playhouse, and I will be in attendance with my father, and this is my blog…

So, in honor of the greatest songwriter ever to come out of the country up North, and to get myself in tune for the upcoming show, here are 20 of my favorite Gordon Lightfoot songs, in no particular order.

I’m sure I left quite a few good ones out, but he’s recorded so many great songs over his career that it’s tough to narrow them down to one list.
