Thread Name: Songs of the Sailor and Lumberman
Subject: Lyr Add: HARRY DUNNE
(from the singing of Archie Lant)
(Doerflinger - 'Songs of the Sailor and Lumberman' - p222)

there's man-y a young Ca-na-di-an boy leaves home and friends so dear,
And long-ing for ex-pee-ri-ment, to Mich-i-gan to steer.
In less than three months af-ter, a tele-e-gram does come,
Say-ing, Your son was killed in the lum-ber-ing woods, His bod-y we'll send home,

I once did know a charming youth by the name of Harry Dunne
His father was a farmer in the county of Odun.
He had everything he wanted, and a farm of good land,
But he only wanted to have a time in the woods of Michigan.
