Thank you!!! Thank you!!! Thank you!!!

I've been trying to track down that last verse to the Ian and Sylvia version for ages - I looked at all the same sites that everyone else mentioned above, and I could never find anything that sounded at all like what they were singing.

Part of the reason their accents sound strange is that Ian Tyson is from Alberta and Sylvia (Fricker) Tyson is from Ontario - it would be like someone from Montana or North Dakota and someone from upstate New York combining their accents on a French-Canadian song. Very odd, but extremely catching.
