I'm on my way to the capital with my guitar in hand

Won't you tell me once I've played for you

You won't need another man

 

It's just the same old story

Everyday ever night of the week

Where there's no pain there's no glory

I'll be damned if I'll be weak

 

I was on the Plains of Abraham

Searching for our song

If our country is weak

This battle speaks of everything that's wrong

 

Canadiana you’re a hard girl to please

But don't you ever leave me alone

No matter how far I roam

I keep coming home

 

I've been on the road since I was born

And I wear it in my grin

St. John's to Victoria every town that lies within

                                                                                        

I became a man at twenty nine

When life would no longer wait

I'd been hiding out and hitching rides

Running from my fate

It's just the same old story

I'm not the only man to try

Where there's no pain there's no glory

It's a truth you can't deny
