Terry's Tune - a song written by sister Nancy Shaw as a tribute to Terry Fox.

                                                     Terry's Tune
You're the man who ran for everyone
While the country stood by your side
You'll not be forgotten for many years
We'll always speak of you with pride.

Oh, Terry, you have not failed us
You've given much more than anyone else
Your country is so proud of you
For giving so much of yourself.

It's a long, long way to Thunder Bay
Millions of dollars you've raised
And those who ran and those who watched
Will speak of your courage with praise.

Oh, Terry, you have not failed us
You've given much more than anyone else
Your country is so proud of you
For giving so much of yourself.

The song was recorded in 1980, and was played on a British Columbia radio station; at a B.C. Lions football game, and a Macleans Magazine article mentioned that a young woman in B.C. wrote a song about Terry Fox. Nancy also visited the parents of Terry Fox and gave them a copy of the song.
