Gordon was a talented self-taught guitarist, keyboardist, harmonica player and singer.

These are unfinished song lyrics, found in a notebook after Gordon's death.  He was writing this song for his daughter, during the Summer of 2000:

I never thought myself as a religious man
But I think now I'm beginning to see
Everyone is looking for a miracle
And you're the miracle that's happened to me.

I'd never felt complete
It just stayed out of my reach
'Til you came...

Your mother is the angel
That was sent to me
Then you came...
