Lightfoot’s hits have reached number one five times, number 10 five times and the Top 40 13 times. His songs include “For Lovin’ Me,” “Early Morning Rain,” “Steel Rail Blues,” “Ribbon of Darkness,” “Black Day in July,” “(Remember Me) I’m the One,” “If You Could Read My Mind,” “Sundown,” “Carefree Highway,” “Rainy Day People” and “The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald.”
