Classical guitar ballad about building the Canadian Railroad. This is a different recording from that on "Gord's Gold".

    Great singer and storyteller, atmospheric.


There was a time in this fair land when the railroad did not run
When the wild majestic mountains stood alone against the sun
And long before the white man and long before the wheel
When the green dark forest was too silent to be real

Gordon Lightfoot - Canadian Railroad Trilogy Lyrics
