Canada, Eh?

C-A-N-A-D-A. Tell me what's a douglas fir
C-A-N-A-D-A. Bet you never heard a bobcat purr
C-A-N-A-D-A. Have you ever seen a lobster crawl?
In Canada, we get to see them all

We get to see the maple trees
Maple sugar and the maple leaves
We got the biggest wheat fields growing tall
C-A-N-A-D-A, where we see the reversing falls
In Canada we get to see them all
C-A-N-A-D-A. Have you ever seen a magnetic hill?
C-A-N-A-D-A, or a lady on a dollar bill?
C-A-N-A-D-A. Bet you've never seen the autumn fall
In Canada we get to see them all

CHORUS: We get to see the maple trees
maple sugar and the maple leaves
We get the biggest timber wood so tall
C-A-N-A-D-A,, where adventure ever calls
In Canada we get to see them all
I say in Canada we get to see them all

Canadian country-folk legend Stompin' Tom Connors died on March 6, 2013, at age 77. A few days earlier the musician penned a letter to fans that he wanted published after his death, his spokesman said. Here is a copy of the letter published on the singer's official website:

Hello friends,

I want all my fans, past, present, or future, to know that without you, there would have not been any Stompin' Tom.

It was a long hard bumpy road, but this great country kept me inspired with its beauty, character, and spirit, driving me to keep marching on and devoted to sing about its people and places that make Canada the greatest country in the world.

I must now pass the torch, to all of you, to help keep the Maple Leaf flying high, and be the Patriot Canada needs now and in the future.

I humbly thank you all, one last time, for allowing me in your homes, I hope I continue to bring a little bit of cheer into your lives from the work I have done.

Sincerely,

Your Friend always,

Stompin' Tom Connors
