The Men Who Drank Canada Dry

Left our hometown for the open road
Guitar and backpack our only load
Saw all the sights that could be seen
Now it’s time to be where we ain’t never been

CHORUS
Heave ho away we go, no more will we shudder a sigh
Today we leave and we say goodbye
We’re the men who drank Canada dry!

Some are content with less than all
Some can’t rise and some can’t fall
We’ll take it all with no regrets
When you hear this song us you’ll never forget

CHORUS

The Canadian beer is a watery brew
It ain’t nothing like the Irish Guinness stew
We drank your towns empty, we closed them all down
And we’re still standing with our feet on the ground

CHORUS

We’ll sit with you one last time
A drink of draught for auld lang syne
Cheers to you my friend, if we see you again
You’ll be pissed drunk in an East Van glen

CHORUS
