Gordon Lightfoot Sheet Music

HOME Bio News Tour CDs DVDs Songs Buy eList

The following are all the Gordon Lightfoot songbooks that are still in print (or recently in print): four songbooks plus sheet music for one single song (but what a song).

The first songbook is new in 2015, and includes lyrics, chords and standard music notation; Be careful: There are two different songbooks called "Best of Gordon Lightfoot", with the same songs but different musical content. The one I sell from my store here is for Piano/Vocal/Guitar, and says so at the top. It was released in June of 2015. In January 2016 a new book was released, with lyrics, chords and chord diagrams only at the top, not within the lyrics. This other book says "Sing and Strum" in the upper lefthand corner, but otherwises looks like the 2015 book (pictured just below).

The 2nd and 3rd songbooks include tablature (that is, treble clef only, guitar chords and tab). The last two items are standard music notation sheet music (treble and bass clef) with guitar chords and chord diagrams with each staff.

As of January, 2016, the 2nd, 3rd and 4th songbooks are out of print, but are available on Kindle.
