Tom Paxton was, and still is, one of my favorites. Born in Oklahoma, he was much influenced by Woody Guthrie and Cisco Houston. He was quite popular for a while. He established himself as a folksinger and writer in New York City, and last I heard, Tom Paxton is still writing and singing. His style and his music is generally simple, and there’s no harshness or fuss. He’s written some real good songs, recorded by many artists. This one, Last Thing On My Mind, is a real good one. I changed/forgot the lyrics there a bit. Check out Tom Paxton.
