The Raftsmen Where are all the raftsmen? They've gone up to the logging camps. cho: Bing on the ring! Bang on the rang! Let the raftsmen go by, Bing on the ring! Bing bang!) They went via Bytown With the provisions they bought. They went up in bark canoes With great pleasure. They ate pork and beans To ease the hunger in their stomachs. When they arrived in the logging camps They made handles for their axes. How the Ottawa (River) is astonished At the noise when they push the logs into the water When work in the camps was finished They went home. They kissed their wives and sweethearts, Very happy to be home again. XX APR99
