Bob Landry Lyr Req: Canadian Railroad Trilogy (G Lightfoot) (17) RE: Lyr Req: The Canadian Railroad trilogy 13 Oct 99

Steve Parkes,

I hadn't heard about this song being in a competition for the CPR centenary but I seem to remember Lightfoot introducing it in a concert as his Centennial project. Did Steve Poole show you our local centennial project, the Great Divide Waterfall that runs off the top of the High Level Bridge in the middle of Edmonton? ... a bridge built to carry rail traffic from the CN lines (that run east-west through Edmonton) and the CPR lines (that run east west through Calgary, 180 miles south of Edmonton.) Next time you're here, we'll try CRT as a duet.

Steve Latimer, I did hear the "anthem" rumour. Too many Canadians struggle to remember the words to the relatively short national anthem we now have. Most would never be able to remember the word to the CRT.
