Goodbye Gordie and thanks for enjoy-fully affecting my life with yours.
What more can people do than leave a powerful and positive impact on others. I may have written similar words last year, if I did I'm adding to it today. Losing Gordie, even though I/we knew it was eventual, really hurts. You all know that I love and live music, it has made me who I am here, FHFully, completely. I could look back and find the many penned Hip parodies but I'd rather  just thank Gordie for what he meant to me and directly those that I love dearly. I mentioned to my daughter today that we use to do the weekend house cleaning and blast The Hip. She was maybe all of 2 years old. She got the Hip vibe. The tattoo of the capped Gordie is on her as of last year. I saw The Hip at least a dozen times. First time in the late 80s in a small club in Halifax, then the ARAs, the stadiums etc. The one that, maybe obviously, left the biggest impact, was last summer, the last show Gordie and The Hip gave in Ottawa. My daughter took me (after so much effort to get tickets). It will remain the most important concert I've attended. Gordie was spectacular but being there with my girl rips right into my heart and squeezes the emotion out of me. I've read many a great tribute and spent hours listening to Gordie's and his Hip mates music all day. Yeah, I shed some tears. Mainly because as the words and the riffs roll by, the memories creep in. Thanks Gordie.

Well I think that there's a Habs problem here
DGMB's voice just don't sound right
Left myself on his answering maCHine
Said, "I'm back on the blog tonight"

I FHFeel Habs've stepped out of the wilderness
All squint-eyed and confused
But even baby Habs raised by Trev
They know exactly when they've been used

See when it starts to fall apart
Marc, it really falls apart
Like boots or hearts, oh when they start
They really fall apart

Ooo FHFingers and toes, FHFingers and toes
24 things we share
Add one if you include
The FHFact that we don't care

Now you've blocked off most of Ste. Catherine Street
For our FHFaith parade
Well everyone in town now, they probably all agree
You're lying in the bed you made

See when it starts to fall apart
Marc, it really falls apart
Like boots or hearts, oh when they start
They really fall apart, well fall apart (and rebuild)

Well you won't even let me talk to you
We got some FHFucking air to clear
Well we'd probably only agree on one thing anyway
That's what the HELL is happening here?!

Oh, FHFingers and toes, FHFingers and toes
24 things we share
Add one if you include
The FHFact that we don't care

See when it starts to fall apart
Geoff, it really falls apart
Like boots or hearts, oh when they start
They really fall apart, well fall apart

Bonus Breezer lick, 'LET ME OOOOUUUTTT!'

🖤 Go You Fucking Gord Downie Go! 🖤
