Stompin' Tom’s farewell to Canada

Whether you are a fan of country, folk, blues,alternative, classical, rap or rock:
I dare any of you to find another writer who found the rough heart of the working man (woman) of Canada. 
I'm sharing this from a CBC email:

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.
Your Friend always,
Stompin' Tom Connors
