Canada IS Home

From the rollin fields of wheat to the busy city streets
There’s a feelin and a spirit all our own
True North strong and free stand on guard you and me
From the East to the West we’ve roamed
This is our home

From Norman Wells at the top all the way to the Rock
There’s a wind that always blown
From down Summerside to the Queen Charlotte Islands
There’s a way of life we’ve always known
This is our home this is our home

I’ve seen the Northern Lights dancin over Yellowknife
While standin in the middle of a field
From Pier 21 all the way to Flynn Flon
You gotta cross that Canadian shield
And no one knows winter like we know winter
Blowin in off Lake Ontario
From the Ottawa Canal to Bon Nom Carnival
There a little place I love in the Gatineau's
With a covered bridge and a swimmin hole
Yeaaah this is our home this is our home

Yeah from Portage and Main to Yonge and Queen
And every street corner in this world
No matter where you go in this rugged land
There’s on thing we all understand
Every woman every child and man
8:30 Newfoundland
(8:30 Newfoundland)
8:30 Newfoundland

Way up in Peace Country and down East in Kings County
And clear across the Thunder Bay
Where Winnipeg is like forever
And hope feels like never
Let alone out near Campbell River way
And when you cross the boarder and you see a Caribou on a quarter
Then and only then will you be home

I’ve driven from the Peg to the Chuck and Yankees call us Canucks
But together well never stand alone
Yeah together well never stand alone
Yeah forever the Maple Leaf will be flown
Cause this is our home (this is our home)
Yeaaah this is our home (this is our home)
This is our home (this is our home)
Man this is our home

Tar Sands and Fort Mac
Redwood Strands and Kitimatt
(This is our home) and down in the Shuswaps too
I’ve seen many nights feel like high noon from the Dome to Saskatoon
There's confederation bridge and butterfly ridge and sudbury and the Sault
I’ve been snowed in for days on the Trans Canada Highway
And that was in the month of June and this is our home
