Thread Name: Name of this song? (Land of the Silver Birch)
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: What is the name of this song?
Land of the Silver Birch

    * Land of the silver birch, home of the beaver,
    * Where still the mighty moose wanders at will.

Chorus

    * Blue lake and rocky shore, I will return once more.
    * Boom de de boom boom, boom de de boom boom.
    * Boom de de boom boom, boom-m-m-m-m.

    * Down in the forest, deep in the lowlands,
    * My heart cries out for thee, hills of the north.

    * Swift as a silver fish, canoe of birch bark,
    * Thy mighty waterways carry me forth.

    * High on a rocky ledge I'll build my wigwam,
    * Close by the water's edge, silent and still.

Its a popular scout song.
