In an old,old CBC TV special with Gord he was walking around Orillia and talking about how as a little boy he would go out morrell hunting in the fields with his father. He'd be in his boots and watching out for the young calves that were out and about. He considered it a very special time in his life and his dad's attitude that it was an outing, an adventure in nature has obviously stayed with him and presented themselves in so many of his songs.


That was in Lightfoot Forward, wasn't it, Char? I think it was produced in 1966. They also interview his mom and dad, and play a clip of Gord singing The Lord's Prayer at about age 12.
