Gordon Lightfoot songs have accompanied me on many journeys into wild majestic mountains. Canadian Railroad Trilogy is especially meaningful to me, I’ve sang it many times and reflected on how the railroad, and our country, was built.

Gordon Lightfoot, Canadian folk legend, dies at 84

Canadian musician Lightfoot passed away on Monday night at a hospital in Toronto due to natural causes, as confirmed by his publicist. The singer-songwriter had been battling serious health issues for a long time, which led to prolonged hospitalization back in 2002.

Lightfoot hailed from a tiny town in Ontario. He first made his name in Toronto's coffeehouse scene. There, he impressed folk music stars Ian and Sylvia, who helped introduce him to the world outside Canada by recording some of his songs.

Gordon Lightfoot wrote more than 400 songs about what he loved — and what he missed.
