Well there's a world-traveling Nova Scotion fiddle player named Kendra MacGillivray who has a site at
this URL and I have written to her to find out of she knows anything about the group or song. Let you know later if she comes back to me on it.

That's probably Alister MacGillivray, writer of Song for the Mira. I don't think I have the words to that one. Will look later. Check also under Sea Cape Music Publications.

Actually, that's Allister MacGillivray and it's Sea-Cape Music Co. It isn't in the Cape Breton Song Collection. I can't find his web-site right now, but I know there is one.

MARITIME SON

Grey Monday morning, factory town -
Assembly-line blues bring a country boy down.
Alone among millions, a hero unsung
In the new emmigration of Maritime sons.

Sounds of the ocean still ring in his ears
Through the hum of the engines, the clatter of gears.
Born to raise anchor, now he's just one
In the new emmigration of Maritime sons.

CHORUS:
He calls once a week to say ev'rything's fine.
His buddy's a Bluenose who worked in a mine;
And Friday to Sunday their sorrows they drown,
And vow to take leave of this factory town.

But each Monday morning, the whistle resounds -
A new day, a dollar, a factory town.
For ev'ry survivor there's work to be done,
And a dream to fullfil for a Maritime son.
(repeat chorus and verse 3)
                Music   Piano Music
