Died Tonight and Canada has lost a great man.
For those of you who read this from afar, I will tell you Stompin’ Tom
was all that Canada is. A man who loved Canada and lived his life on the square.

The American Paul Bunyan Legend was based on a man called Big Joe Mufferaw
Stompin Tom wrote about Big Joe Mufferaw.
I’m kinda tore up tonight. We all took him for granted.

Tom Connors- Listen to him- He was the voice of the average person.
His death surprised us tonight but Tom wrote this to all Canadians a couple of days ago

“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 it’s 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
Thank you Tom Connors- I’m glad i met you
