NORTHWEST PASSAGE - Stan Rogers
(c) 1981 Fogarty's Cove Music Inc.

               D        A            G                  Bm
        Ah for just one time I would take the Northwest Passage
           G                D                 Em               G
        To find the hand of Franklin reaching for the Beaufort Sea
                D        A              G                Bm
        Tracing one warm line through a land so wide and savage
            G                D       A      D
        And make a Northwest Passage to the sea

Westward from the Davis Strait, 'tis there was said to lie
The sea route to the orient for which so many died
Seeking gold and glory, leaving weathered broken bones
And a long forgotten lonely cairn of stones

Three centuries thereafter I take passage over land
In the footsteps of brave Kelso where his "sea of flowers" began
Watching cities rise before me then behind me sink again
This tardiest explorer driving hard across the plains

And through the night behind the wheel, the mileage clicking west
I think upon Mackenzie, David Thompson, and the rest
Who cracked the mountain ramparts and did show a path for me
To race the roaring Fraser to the sea

How then am I so different from the first men through this way
Like them, I left a settled life, I threw it all away
To seek a Northwest Passage at the call of many men
To find there but the road back home again
