Randy Newman Northern Boy Lyrics

Last updated: 06/28/2012 11:00:00 AM

[Lord:] In Ottawa, there is a custom
Before the boy becomes the man
He takes a drop of Northern courage
And swears he'll do the best he can
He swears he'll do the best he can

[Devil:] Oh Northern boy
As thick as a tree
As dull as a butterknife

[L:] Oh, Northern boy
Clean of limb, clear of eye
Unfettered he lives, unfettered he'll die
The Northern boy
Oh Northern boy Northern boy

Saskatchewan
Thy endless prairie
Where the buffalo used to roam

[D:] Only a man
Half blind on whisky

Would choose to make
This land his home
Would choose to make
This land his home

[L:] Oh Northern boy
As strong as an oak
As quick as thunderbolt
To adventure he'll rise
The Northern boy
Can be as gentle as a lamb

[D:] And just like a sheep he will follow you
Whenever he can
The Northern boy

[L:] The Northern boy
Oh Northern boy
