Thread Name: Logging Songs
Subject: RE: Logging Songs
0Could someone post words to Badger Drive. It is an alltime great song, somewhat similar in my mind to Log Drivers Waltz.
Also, check out CDs by Fraser Union of B.C. They are great singers and usually would have a couple at least of logging songs I think. Snap the line tight is a song about getting the sunk logs...I thyink they and many others..Hank Cramer comes to mind..do it...
Here is an anecdote told me to me by an old Franciscon nun...that the French Canadian loggers used to sing "Hail Holy Queen" presumably in French...and stay close enough so they could hear each other so they wouldn't get separated. Pretty song. mg
