His song Mama Said came out in 1974 and it made a mention " Dad went away to his place in the sky, mama said he was a real good guy" and I see that Gord Sr died in 1974 so I imagine that was the one and only reference to his father in a song.

You know I was at Massey Hall in 1998 when after a few songs, Gord became unusually quiet and had announced to all of us that his mother had passed away prior to the Massey Hall run and he mentioned that his mother's favourite song was " The House You Live In" and proceeded to play it.

I suspect whenever he plays it live now, that is a testament to his parents in general.
