CANADIAN PACIFIC (Ray Griff) George Hamilton IV - 1969 Hank Snow - 1971 Chet Atkins - 1974 Also recorded by: Count Basie; Foster & Allen; Tim Hus. I rode your ocean liner to Newfoundland Where I made a livin' in an iron mine When I got my fill, I went to Nova Scotia And I fished the salty waters for a time Passing through Prince Edward Island and New Brunswick I could see them rocks and cliffs of solid stone Listenin' to the seagulls callin' to each other Made me miss my darlin' and my distant home Canadian Pacific, carry me three thousand miles Through the valleys and the forests To the sunshine of her smile 'Cross the plains and rugged mountains Keep this wanderin' boy from harm Canadian Pacific, take me to my baby's arms The Atlantic disappeared on the horizon And Quebec lay waitin' for me down the track For a while I drove a truck to keep from starvin' In Ontario I was a lumberjack Manitoba and Saskatchewan then followed Where the wheat fields and the old Red River flows In the quiet hours your whistle on the prairie Touched my heart and set my memories aglow I could feel the nearness of her warm, soft kisses When you rolled into Alberta westward bound I worked on an oil rig to make some money For a ticket to the sweetest girl around Pushin' on past Lake Louise in all it's splendour Where the trees and Rockies touch the sky above I got to British Columbia and heaven On your tracks I made it back to my true love Canadian Pacific, carried me three thousand miles Through the valleys and the forests To the sunshine of her smile 'Cross the plains and rugged mountains You kept this wanderin' boy from harm Canadian Pacific, you took me to my baby's arms Canadian Pacific, carried me three thousand miles Through the valleys.............FADE
