Track Name: Ballad of Maud Watt
The hunger has hit like a coal-fired train
& if I don't starve I'll still feel the pain
For dozens have passed and I know them by name
For a beaver-pelt hat that can't keep out the rain

Those pelts are like gold and the rush is on
Going to stack them all up until they're all gone
I'm driving my sleigh to the Ottawa line
I've been marking my days with the passage of time

The creek doesn't flood the way it did before
You won't hear a tail slap down by the shore
There's a man standing there at my log cabin door
He wants to give to the rich and steal from the poor

The crackling flame in the firebox glows
With the comforting pain of 20 miles to go
We've got to press on through the deepest of snow
While the late morning sun shows us where to go
