    "Northern Boy" Lyrics

    Randy Newman

    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

    Oh, Northern boy, as thick as a tree
    As dull as a butter knife
    Oh, Northern boy, clean of limb, clear of eye
    Unfettered he lives, unfettered he'll die
    The Northern boy, oh, Northern boy

    Saskatchewan an endless prairie
    Where the buffalo used to roam
    Only a man, half blind on whiskey
    Would choose to make this land his home
    Would choose to make this land his home

    Oh, Northern boy as strong as an oak
    As quick as a thunderbolt to adventure he'll rise
    The Northern boy, can be gentle as a lamb
    And just like a sheep he will follow you
    Whenever he can

    The Northern boy, the Northern boy
    The Northern boy
