Waylon Jennings did it too.

And apparently Lightfoot returned the favor during the opening ceremonies of the 1988 Winter Olymics in Calgary, when he sang "Four Strong Winds," which Jennings wrote.

I always thought Ian Tyson wrote, "Four Strong Winds."

Ian & Gord did do it at, the Opening Ceremonies, in 1988 in Calgary, along with Lightfoots, "Alberta Bound."

Oops. Then the information I read on my Waylon Jennings collection was incorrect. That's where I got it.

Blush.

Back to add: Yes, after double checking myself, I was wrong about who wrote Four Strong Winds. Jennings was a very early recorder of the song, Bobby Bare heard his version and then recorded his own cut, but Jennings' version sort of put him on the map....

But the liner notes in my Waylon Jennings anthology did say something about Bare "covering Waylon Jennings's song 'Four Strong Winds,'" which would give the impression that Jennings wrote it. "Four Strong Winds" itself is not on my anthology, so I could not tell from the liner notes who exactly did. I hope it's understandable why I made the mistake.

Hi AZroute74, your mistake is often done by many people, because that song was done by so many artists. Many folks think it belongs to Neil Young. But Ian Tyson is the mind behind it...~Jesse~

It is a good one.
