Canadian Railroad Trilogy

Lyrics

There was a time in this fair land when the railroad did not run
When the wild majestic mountains stood alone against the sun
Long before the white man and long before the wheel
When the green dark forest was too silent to be real

There was a time in this fair land when the railroad did not run
