Here is the message Tom wrote when this great book was first released:
“Well, finally folks, HERE IT IS! The One Book that so many Stompin’ Tom fans have been waiting for. The Book that contains All the Words and Chords to practically every song I have either personally written, co-written, or traditionally arranged as well as recorded over the last 40 years. I say ‘practically every song’ because I may have missed one or two that I recorded on the now obsolete 45 rpm singles in Timmins, Ont. when I was first getting started. Nevertheless, I think this book with over 250 songs is probably, up until now, the most extensive song collection ever compiled on any one song writing artist, and they’re all under the one cover. It took quite a while but I’m finally glad it’s done.
