I don't have the lyrics..don't know if anyone other than Lightfoot does...
- "The songwriting well hasn’t run entirely dry – his girlfriend, Kim Hasse, recently encouraged him to complete one unfinished song, “It Doesn’t Really Matter.” There are three or four others “on the back burner,” he admits, but to pull them together at this late stage, well, he feels there just isn’t time."

In regard to the article mentioning also that all his shows have been recorded. Too bad their isn't a way to order shows that one has seen Gordon perform live. I know, that Paul Kantner of Jefferson Airplane/Starship s few years ago offered fans a way to purchase the very show they were at. I know all of Gordon's fans would buy these.

Nicholas I believe has often written about Gordon
notably in the wonderful Songbook boxset booklet
I previously produced a series of links to the booklet's text see the old corfid thread at:-
http://www.corfid.com/vbb/showthread.php?t=14673
for example the full text of Nicolas' contribution "Master Craftsman"
is at:-
http://www.mastercraftsman.notlong.com
I also refound that Nicholas starts the riverboat plaque video
which also features Gord and Bernie Fiedler the video link was borrowed from
http://corfid.com/vbb/showthread.php?t=19677

see also the 1999 Newsgroup thread " An Open Letter *From* Thane"
by the Songbook producer (Thane Tierney) in which he gives credit
to Nicholas

Just spotted I think Nicholas got one chronological detail slightly wrong
In his songbook article he says
"Lightfoot flew from Stockholm to London in the spring of 1963
. By all accounts, Gordon was not a gregarious host. But the shy, soft-spoken singer stuck it out and tried to make the best of an awkward situation.
Curiously, Lightfoot was unaffected by Beatlemania or the Merseybeat wave of pop music sweeping Britain at the time. But his five-month stint in the U.K. did get his creative juices flowing. He returned armed with 30 new songs, a prodigious output for someone who had previously written only a handful, including the promising "Remember Me (I'm The One." "

which clearly indicates that Remember Me was one of the 30 new songs he wrote in London in 1963 that he then brought back to Canada yet
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gordon_Lightfoot
says
"(Remember Me) I'm the One" reached No. 3 on CHUM radio in Toronto in July 1962" which was many months BEFORE spring 1963 plus 5 months by my reckoning or maybe I am missing something here???
