GUEST,Laura Lyr Add: Life of a Voyageur/Voyager (60* d) RE: Lyr Add: Life of a Voyageur/Voyager 26 Jul 12

I learned this song back in the early 70's at Camp Norwesco (Girl scout camp) in New Auburn Wisconsin.

The first two versus are similiar to the way I learned them with one exception. In the second verse the last four lines go as follows:

Smoke rising from the fires
Up to the trees in stately spires
Breezes sigh in the evening glow
Sun goes down, the north wind blows.

I had never learned a 3 or 4th verse and I see that there are several versions posted here and elsewhere on the web.

I would love to be able to give credit to the correct author, but alas I still am unsure after reading these posts.
