I found this at metrolyrics.com. (beware-popups aplenty)

I believe the song is called The Ferryman:

>From Espanola ta Manitoulina cross the channel I'm bound
I heard a story in Tobermory that my baby's in Owen Sound
I was close behind her but I couldn't find her so to Meaford I'm away-
Down to Collingwood that' s where I stood at the bottom of the Georgian Bay
Ferryman Ferryman ! Have you seen my Marianne?
In my search for her I've been- around the bay and back again
Around the bay and back again...
Lick-repeat
>From Wasaga ta Penatanguishine north ta Parry Sound
There's 30,000's of lakes and Islands and where can she be found
>From grit my baby never hit French river and Sudbury they say
She took a ferry in Tobermory across the Georgian Bay...
Chorus: then-Guitar lick.
>From Espanola to Manitoulina cross the channel I'm bound
Another story in Tobermory said to try old Hepworth town
I was close behind her but I couldn't find her
So I guess I'll have to stay-Without my lovely on lonely island
In the middle of the Georgian Bay
Chorus:
Ferry Man-repeat 3 X and end....

Several websites contain the lyrics posted above. They all seem to be copied-and-pasted from the same source, and they say the title is FERRYMAN FERRYMAN—but there is no mention of a song by that title at the "official" Stompin' Tom Connors website. There is, however, a listing for a song called AROUND THE BAY AND BACK AGAIN. It's on 2 albums: "Stompin' Tom Meets Big Joe Mufferaw" (1970) and "On Tragedy Trail" (1969).

That website provides no lyrics or sound samples, but I think it's a pretty safe bet that AROUND THE BAY AND BACK AGAIN is the correct title.

Jim Dixon is correct. I have an original "Stompin' Tom Connors Folio #1" purchased at one of his performances in the early seventies and duly autographed by Mr. Connors and his band. "Around The Bay And Back Again" is on page four of this little treasure. There are a few minor errors in the lyrics posted above, so if anyone just has to have the entire song, music, chords and lyrics, I would be willing to scan it.
