Vinland Origins: Let Me Fish off Cape Saint Mary's (38) RE: Origins: Let Me Fish off Cape Saint Mary's 25 May 07


'Cape St Mary's' appears to be inspired by ' The Hills of Wyoming', which was recorded by Gene Audrey. You can listen to him sing a fragment of the song at: http://www.geneautry.com/musicmovies/musiccds/25westernclassics.html   The songs seem similar but no more so than so many blues or pop songs sound like others. I believe Barbara Allen was the melodic ancester of both songs. Mr Kelland's lyrics are quite well written and show his deep affection for the place.

Incidentally, Cape St Mary's is an amazing place to see; it has a huge rock just offshore which has become a bird sanctuary. Thousands of gannets and other sea birds nest there.   Well worth a visit if you're in the province.
