the song was written as a olands commercial at first. michael stanbury is an olands grandson through his mother amadita oland- stanbury. however the commercial was so popular he wrote a whole song to the tune.i believe he recoreded it with his halifax group called the townsmen. the townsmen used to get together every few years in halifax and do a gig so you might still find their recordings in nova scotia.they were a fine band.
