CeltArctic Lyr Add: Arise and Come Along (6) Lyr Add: Arise and Come Along 01 Jul 06

I learned this off of a Muddy York cassette when I was a kid. They were a due from Ontario who specialized in traditional Canadian folksongs. The cassette had no notes, so I know nothing about where this comes from, nor how old it is.

Arise and come along,
Oh arise and come along.
Arise, arise and come along
And bid adieu to Canada

1. The day is fair, the breeze is fine
And it swiftly flows the tide.
The boat is sailin' o'er the main
To take us far from Canada.

2. In Quebec this noble town
We arrived there safe and sound.
And to the tavern we'll sit down
And drink a toast to Canada.

3. Tell that handsome boy of mine
If he returns before I die
We will ride in great style
Along the road to Canada.

4. Here I stand all alone
On the California shore
And the girl that I adore
She mourns alone in Canada.
