Northwest Passage
By: Bounding Main

An explorer song. Ahhh…exploring. Something that we do every time we get into a car and try to get to a gig. This is a beautiful piece about explorers trying to find the Northwest Passage to the Orient, or philosophically, the answer to one's life journey.

Lyrics
Northwest Passage
Contemporary Ballad
Written and originally recorded by Stan Rogers. © Fogarty's Cove Music

Chorus:
Ah, for just one time I would take the Northwest Passage
To find the hand of Franklin1 reaching for the Beaufort Sea2;
Tracing one warm line through a land so wide and savage
And make a Northwest Passage to the sea.

Westward from the Davis Strait3 'tis there 'twas said to lie
The sea route to the Orient for which so many died;
Seeking gold and glory, leaving weathered, broken bones
And a long-forgotten lonely cairn of stones. (Chorus)

Three centuries thereafter, I take passage overland
In the footsteps of brave Kelso4, where his "sea of flowers" began
Watching cities rise before me, then behind me sink again
This tardiest explorer, driving hard across the plain. (Chorus)

And through the night, behind the wheel, the mileage clicking west
I think upon Mackenzie5, David Thompson6 and the rest
Who cracked the mountain ramparts and did show a path for me
To race the roaring Fraser to the sea.(Chorus)

How then am I so different from the first men through this way?
Like them, I left a settled life, I threw it all away.
To seek a Northwest Passage at the call of many men
To find there but the road back home again. (Chorus x2)
