Paddle My Own Canoe I've traveled about a bit in my time And of troubles I've seen a few But found it better in every clime To paddle my own canoe. My wants are few. I care not at all If my debts are paid when due. I drive away strife in the ocean of life While I paddle my own canoe. The love your neighbor as yourself As the world you go traveling through And never sit down with a tear or a frown But paddle your own canoe. note: This is a song from Laura Wilder's By the Shores of Silver Lake that she reports her father used to sing. It was called Paddle Your Own Canoe and sung to the tune of Rosin the Bow. JH JH OCT98
