Canada lost an icon this week, wrapped up in a big 'ole Canadian Flag

Stompin' Tom wrote and sang Canadianna across this great land of ours.

Here's a little ditty that's particularly relevant for us.

March 2013


By Stompin’ Tom Connors

Link to the Youtube video - it's an oldie.... - lyrics below

It's Wintertime and the weather's fine
The snow on the woods and fields when I reveal... my snowmobile
Thrill by thrill by golly n' hill
Baby it'll make ya feel like an outdoor meal...
On a snowmobile

Listen to the sound when the belts go round '
When the winter carnival's here...
And oh what fun at the crack of the gun
When the whole gang disappears...

The race is on from the bush to the pond
And back where the judges's feel you've won their seal...
For the snowmobile
You've won their seal... for the snowmobile

Where skier's ski, and skater's pee and snowshoes lend appeal
Like a bogie wheel,... On a snowmobile
We tip the glass to the northern lass for she won't let ya kneel
She'd rather squeal... on a snowmobile

You're off to the town where the word goes round
It's winter carnival time
In goggles, boots, and a snowproof suit Your sweethearts on your mind
Ya win the race and you see her face and you know that she must feel
You've got a real... good snowmobile

Now down the street U can hear the beat & the clickin of the dancer's heel
When the fiddler's peel... off a ragtime reel
You dance and tear with an "I don't care
On the way back home you'll wheel-over hill and field -On a snowmobile

Through the golden glow on powdered snow
When the moon comes rolling along
On a homeward trail U can hear the wail of the whole gang singing a song..
If tomorrow's clear with fishin gear

We'll head for a lake trout meal

With a rod and a reel-and a snowmobile

Life can be real with a snowmobile

There ain't no deal like a snowmobile

Thanks Tom & RIP.........
