Ciaran Origins: Something to Sing About (Oscar Brand) (57* d) Lyr Add: SOMETHING TO SING ABOUT (Oscar Brand) 15 Oct 98

Try this...from

(Oscar Brand)

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 great northern sea.

CHORUS: From the Vancouver Island
To the Alberta highland,
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 snow peaks of Caribou,
Up to the clouds where the wild Rockies roar. CHORUS

I have heard the wild wind sing,
The places that I have been,
Bay Bull and Red Deer and Strait of Belle Isle,
Names like Grand Mere and Silverthrone,
Moosejaw and Marrowbone
Trails of the pioneer, named with a smile. CHORUS

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 maple trees,
Sharing this song that I'm singing to you. CHORUS

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 balled that's still unsung,
Telling the promise of great things to come. CHORUS
