GUEST,Dave (the ancient mariner) Verse Add: Northwest Passage (Stan Rogers) (17) Lyr Add: NORTHWEST PASSAGE (Stan Rogers) 23 May 04


I found this on a Stan Rogers site recently. Stan wrote a fifth verse for the song Northwest Passage. Here it is and worthy of inclusion in this fine song.

And if should be I come again to loved ones left at home,
Put the journals on the mantle, shake the frost out of my bones,
Making memories of the passage, only memories after all,
And hardships there the hardest to recall.

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