Thread Name: Lyr/Chords Req: Canadian 'anthem'
Subject: Canadian 'anthem' and other songs
I was recently at a re-enactment (this last weekend), and a young Canadian with his guitar was there. He sang two WONDERFUL songs, one I had only heard once, and the other I had never heard before. Unfortunately, neither of us had pen nor paper, and had both been a bit to friendly with the local imbibing. I was wondering if anyone here would be able to provide me with the lyrics and tune to them...

One was what he stated was an "unofficial" Canadian anthem, which was very amusing, and had to do with the fact that they are the 2nd largest country in the world (Russia is 1st, but they keep dividing... etc).

The other was regarding Log Riders and how they learned to be so careful with the ladies...

Both are prizes that I'd like to have in my songbook.

Oh... and if anyone should have a song about pirates who claim to "have sailed the seven seas, which is funny because, we don't have a boat", I'd like the lyrics and chords to that as well.

Thanks so much.
