Here's one:

WE SAIL by Sylvia Tyson

We sail and we sail togehter
The name of our ship is the new beginning
And our sails are a hopeful color
Filled with the winds of changing times
We sail, and the sea around us it waves
and it swells as a great heart beating
All the storms of the night are passing
How can we sink when we can fly.

(repeat)

We Sail by Sylvia Tyson

These are the words that I hear;

We sail and we sail together
The name of our ship is the new beginning
And our sails are a hopeful colour
Filled with the wind of changing times

We sail and the sea around us
It winks and it swells as a great heart beating
All the storms of the night are passing
How can we sink when we can fly?

I met Mr Fricker, Sylvia's father, in the white goods department of the Bay in Chatham, Ontario. He didn't like cowboys. You can hear all about it in 'Someday Soon'.

I love your anecdote, henryp!
to which I might add:
Ian Tyson sometimes* introduces 'Someday soon' with the line,
"Here's the song that bought the ranch..."

keep pickin'
dennis

    at least he did at the Manitou Opera House [Manitoba] a couple of years ago.
