lyrics

The sun goes down on a western sky
We’ve ploughed through fields and wild roses high
A mountanis back drop and our spirits high
This prairie schooner’s set sail cross a prairie mile

So come rally round boys, we’re homeward bound
Come rally round now land ho!
Come rally round boys we’re homeward bound
Cross a sea of wheat and despair-o
On a sea of wheat and despair-o

The campfires blazing and songs are sung
With stories passed down from the old to the young
And the chucks are packed as our journey’s begun
In search of promised land under an Alberta sun

So come rally round boys, we’re homeward bound
Come rally round now land ho!
Come rally round boys we’re homeward bound
Cross a sea of wheat and despair-o
On a sea of wheat and despair-o

A prairie land rush they came from near and far
On the backs of their stead’s and by railway car
Leaving behind family and drought struck farms
To a land of prosperity and Chinook winds warm

So come rally round boys, we’re homeward bound
Come rally round now land ho!
Land Ho!
Come rally round boys we’re homeward bound
Cross a sea of wheat and despair-o
On a sea of wheat and despair-o
Crossing seas of wheat and despair-o
