The Canadiana Folksingers

Once was part of a folk group About fifty years ago Just before that group from England Took over the whole damn show You known, that famous foursome Blew us out of the water Folk scene died almost immediately They wiped us up with a blotter Fantastic time the six of us had Not a money making gig for sure The bunch of us had the time of lives On TV, an album, a tour Looking back with very fond memories Gave us such an inner peace Singing many times in old folks homes Appreciative beyond belief Sure you wouldn't have heard of us The Canadiana Folksingers, we were Proud as hell to have been a member Those days now are just a blur © Jack Ellison 2013

    Love folk songs... Yes Dragon... They come from folks... No they're not like fairies... No they don't spread fairy dust... No! No folk dust either... They're people... Silly Dragon... Who sing beautiful, down to earth songs... No they're still there... you just have to look a little harder now a days to find them... No! Dragon!... You won't find them in the earth with a magnifying glass... This just keeps getting better and better... I give up!... LOL

    I'd love to hear you guys perfom. You're in Canada. How did people from England take over? Can't they stay over there and leave you cool folks alone? :)
