Thread Name: Name of this song? (Land of the Silver Birch)
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: What is the name of this song?
From http://members.shaw.ca/tunebook/birch.htm, which also has a midi file of the tune. Canadian it is.

Land of the Silver Birch

Land of the silver birch, home of the beaver
Where still the mighty moose wanders at will
Blue lake and rocky shore
I will return once more.

   Refrain
   Boom de de boom boom
   Boom de de boom boom
   Boom de de boom boom
   Bo-o-o-o-m

Down in the forest, deep in the lowlands
My heart cries out for thee, hills of the north
Blue lake and rocky shore
I will return once more.

High on a rocky ledge I'll build my wigwam
Close by the water's edge, silent and still
Blue lake and rocky shore
I will return once more.

Land of the silver birch, home of the beaver
Where still the mighty moose wanders at will
Blue lake and rocky shore
I will return once more.
