In Honour of Stompin’ Tom Connors (February 9, 1936 – March 6, 2013)

There’s a bit of synchronicity because only a couple of weeks ago (getting ready for a move to a new home), I unearthed a ballad that I’d written in his honour – probably in early 1974 – when I was in Grade 12, soon to graduate from high school. So here it is, never before published and shown to the Universe. (But my mom liked it.) :
