PADDLE MY OWN CANOE

I've traveled about a bit in my time
And of troubles I've seen a few
But found it better in every clime
To paddle my own canoe.

My wants are few. I care not at all
If my debts are paid when due.
I drive away strife in the ocean of life
While I paddle my own canoe.

The love your neighbor as yourself
As the world you go traveling through
And never sit down with a tear or a frown
But paddle your own canoe.


note: This is a song from Laura Wilder's By the Shores of Silver Lake
that she reports her father used to sing. It was called
Paddle Your Own Canoe and sung to the tune of Rosin the Bow. JH
