Strangers

Grandpa Anderson's 90th Birthday present

A foreign man from a strange land came to a place to call his home
With all of his family and none of his friends the stranger was alone
They traveled the hills from town to town looking for a place to live
With all of his family and none of his friends they decided on Fox River

As the years passed on his father did too
Now the boys had to be men
With each a different value they were strangers once again

By the shores of Cape Split he grew into a man who is honest fair and true
With so many stories to tell of a man in his youth
By horse and buggy and Amherst Town working all day and night
Uphill both ways he'd say with a grin and a wink of an eye

As much as he loved his life up there if he was loyal to his wife
When her family needed help he gave up his home and took flight

Down to the States with all they owned to care for more than his share
Oh Canada he'd sing we'd rather be with you up there
What a wonderful man to have in my life listening to the stories he tells
His 90 years of giving never taking for himself
This is my gift to you Grandad a song to call your own
Beautiful memories of beautiful land you've always called your home

A foreign man from a strange Land came back to a place called home
With all of his family and some of his friends
He'll never be alone
