I believe the opening line to Aengus Finnan's tribute song titled "Lightfoot" is
"On the road that lies before us, from east to western sea" (rather than "On the road that lies before us, from sea to shining sea").

My favourite tribute songs about Lightfoot (in order) are:

1. "Gordon" (2013) by Don Coleman: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FxuprrQACZk

2. "Lightfoot" (1968) by The Guess Who: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mnfgQiDcbvk

3. "Lightfoot" (2003) by Aengus Finnan: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EpP7ccaM_rc

4. "The Poet" (2005) by J.P. Cormier (I couldn't find a link, but the track is available on J.P. Cormier's terrific album "The Long River, A Personal Tribute" to Gordon Lightfoot")

I'm curious to know whether others have a favourite tribute song about Lightfoot.
