Song of the North

Laurie was raised in Terrace and Gord married in to a family with deep roots along Highway 16. We know the north and believe that this place must be seen to be appreciated. Words are often not enough to do justice to the north. Knowing this we decided to write a song that would not so much describe, as create a feeling that would encourage people  to spend some time in the north. "Song of the North" speaks of the magic that awaits those who are ready for pure adventure, fresh air and friendly people. The north will refresh you; the north will change you. So go ahead; there's no need to rush, it's all there waiting for you.

 

Song of the North

                                                                             Written by: Laurie Thain and Gord Maxwell

 

Oh what a journey

North to Prince George

To the Yellowhead Highway 16

Then east to the Rockies

Or west to the coast

A masterpiece in blue and green

Totems standing on First Nations land,

Ancient legends carved out by hand.

 

CHORUS:

And I know,

The farther and the deeper you go,

You’ll hear a melody that you can't ignore

And for evermore

You’ll be singing the Song of the North

 

Follow route 97 and before too long,

You’ll discover the mighty Peace

The land opens up

and the mountains give way

To the golden fields of wheat

This is the land where dinosaurs roamed,

It's still the place where the bison call home.

CHORUS:

BRIDGE:  Maybe one mystical, wintry night

When the stars line up

When everything’s right

You’ll find yourself under

The spell and the wonder

Of the magical northern lights

 

 And I know,

The farther and the deeper you go,

You’ll hear a melody that you can't ignore

And for evermore . . .

a song like you've never heard before.

It's the beautiful song of the north.

Oh, singing the song of the north.
