Canadian Pride

 

Leaving the island out in the Atlantic

Travelling westward Peace in my mind

Crossing the Gulf Stream In to Nova Scotia

Checking the country out taking my time

Moved on to New Brunswick Caught up in Ore Mountain

Rested in charlotte town on old P.E.I.

Leaving the east coast and all of its beauty

Not even a rich man can could ever good-bye

 

Here’s to the country that I love and were I live

I wouldn’t trade it for all of your gold

And you can cross the Rocky Mountains and the prairies to the seas

And you can show Canadian pride wherever you go

 

Moved on to Quebec has the evening was fading

Met up with some people who gave me a smile

Spent the whole night there Warming up to the language

The flag of this country they held it up high

Welcome to Ontario Well that’s what the sign says

We’re keeping it lovely so you can enjoy

Hitching a ride to a place called Toronto

Loving this country Each and every mile

 

Here’s to the country that I love and were I live

I wouldn’t trade it for all of your gold

And you can cross the Rocky Mountains and the prairies to the seas

And you can show Canadian pride wherever you go

 

Moved on to old Winnipeg Out in Manitoba

Took in the scenery on portage and main

Set into Saskatchewan the pride of the prairies

Those friendly people treat you the same

Out in Alberta the oilrigs are pumping

Keeping the country sliding in gold

West Edmonton mall there titanic of playgrounds

It’s a world wonder Sight to behold

I tasted the salt air on the docks in Vancouver

Continuous tubs move ships come and leave

A breeze from the ocean kept brushing my body

Moving me north ward so I believe

 

Here’s to the country that I love and were I live

I wouldn’t trade it for all of your gold

And you can cross the Rocky Mountains and the prairies to the seas

And you can show Canadian pride wherever you go

 

From downtown in white horse Up in the Yukon

The glistening snow caps go as far as you see

To the rock they call Yellowknife and oh great the slave lake

And proud to stand up for in wt

I travelled this country one end to the other

Met lots of people would pass (not sure of the rest of this line)

The lord of this land man the right to your freedom

Is easy to see from Right here where I live

 

 

Here’s to the country that I love and well I live

I wouldn’t trade it for all of your gold

And you can cross the Rocky Mountains

And the prairies to the seas

And you can show Canadian pride wherever you go

 

To this country I love that island

I wouldn’t trade it for all of your gold

You can cross the Rocky Mountains And the prairies to the seas

And you can show Canadian pride wherever you go
