Something to Sing About

I have walked cross the sand on the Grand Banks of Newfoundland
Lazed on the ridge of the Mirimichi
Seen the waves tear and roar at the stone coast of Labrador
Watched them roll back to the Northern Sea.


From the Vancouver Island to the Alberta Highlands
Cross the prairie, the lakes to Ontario's towers
From the sound of Mount Royal's chimes out to the Maritimes
Something to sing about, this land of ours.

I have welcomed the dawn from the fields of Saskatchewan
Followed the sun to the Vancouver shore
Watched it climb shiny new up the snowpeaks of Caribou
Up to the clouds where the wild Rockies soar.

I have head the wild wind sing the places that I have been
Bay Bull and Red Deer and the Strait of Belle Isle
Names like Grand Mere and Silverthorne, Moose Jaw and Marrowbone,
Trails of the pioneer, named with a smile.

I have wandered my way to the wild wood of Hudson Bay
Treated my toes to Quebec's morning dew
Where the sweet summer breeze kissed the leaves of the apple
Sharing this song that I'm singing to you

Yes, there's something to sing about
Tune up a string about
Call out in chorus or quietly hum
Of a land that's still young, with a ballad that still unsung
Telling the promise of great things to come.
