The Lyrics

A song about winter in Upper Michigan, based on Gordon Lightfoot's excellent version of the Canadian folk song "Farewell to Nova Scotia."
The sun was setting early in the day
The birds... had enough sense to flee
All nature seemed inclined to go away
But the one dumb guy who stayed was me

I am stuck in the Keweenaw, that ice-bound coast
Where the snowbanks tall and dreary be
Oh when you are far away on a balmy ocean beach
Will you ever heave a sigh and a wish for me?

I dream to leave my native land
I dream to seek that comfort zone
But my aged parents who insist on living here
Are a thorny thorny problem that I can't ignore

I am stuck in the Keweenaw, that ice-bound coast
Where the snowbanks tall and dreary be
Oh when you are far away on a balmy ocean beach
Will you ever heave a sigh and a wish for me?

The snow does fall and the weatherman does warn
But my boss calls, I must obey
So I go outside into the white winter storm
Instead of laying on that beach that is far, far away

I am stuck in the Keweenaw, that ice-bound coast
Where the snowbanks tall and dreary be
Oh when you are far away on a balmy ocean beach
Will you ever heave a sigh and a wish for me?

I have two brothers and they are at rest
One lives in Florida and the other out West
So a poor simple Yooper just like me
Must shovel snow for hours just to get his car free

I am stuck in the Keweenaw, that ice-bound coast
Where the snowbanks tall and dreary be
Oh when you are far away on a balmy ocean beach
Will you ever heave a sigh and a wish for me?

I am stuck in the Keweenaw, that ice-bound coast
Where the snowbanks tall and dreary be
Oh when you are far away on a balmy ocean beach
Will you ever heave a sigh and a wish for me?
