Ojibway Country

Listen ... High-Speed, Dial-Up
http://www.billhouston.ca/view_lyric...jibway+Country

Ojibway country the land of the tree
Brave wild and rugged, cold and so free
Though I will claim you, I cannot tame you
So sang the trapper, the miner, the mapper
So sang the many who came by this way

Superior country your mystery calls me
Time cannot date you, men cannot own
The cold winter weather will bind us together
Sang the railroader, the logger, the loader
So sang the many who made it their home

What kind of man will come to this country
To bear the discomfort and challenge his brain
For it will take him, shake him, remake him
So sang the schemer, the poet, the dreamer
So sang the many who gave it their name

What kind of dreams provoke us to wander
When is the dreaming too late for us all
No rhyme can reason the time or the season
So sang the trapper, the miner, the mapper
And the railroader, the logger, the loader
So sang the schemer, the poet, the dreamer
So sang the many who answered the call
