Stompin’ Tom Connors Stomps Out

  2. This is indeed a sad day. I lived up the road from Stompin’ Tom’s home and it looked like any other house you would see. He never lived ‘the high life’ just as regular folk. It’s going to be sad driving past the old place knowing he isn’t there.

    PS… the only thing good about ‘Scudbury’ was Tom’s song. ;)
