The Cabin in the Wood

(INTRO)

There are strange things seen in the forest green
By the men who fish and hunt,
The lumber roads have their secret codes
That will make you curse and grunt.
The Northern lights have seen mighty sights
But the mightiest that ever stood,
Was a little stake down by the lake
And that cabin in the wood.

Well it’s hard to say on just what day
Or how it al began,
This is the story of one man’s glory
And his life long dream as a man.
“A dream ain’t willed it’s something you build.’
He used to say with a smile,
“And as you grow you’ll come to know
A dream can take a while.’

CHORUS
Take me back to the cabin in the wood before I die…

It was on his knee my brother and me
We’d sit for the longest spell,
Of the ‘Julie Plante’ and ‘The Habitant’
Oh the stories he could tell.
“Just one more then to bed we’ll soar
Please tell us if you would,
The one about the big lake trout
And that cabin in the wood?”

To the north he went his days were spent
Working with a team,
Of family and friends and odds and ends
And living out his dream.
He finally won his dream was done
And everything was good,
A family life his friends and wife
And his cabin in the wood.

It didn’t seem right that he died that night
So close and yet so far,
But tangible things don’t have wings
That’s why dreams are what they are.
What you want so much you just can’t touch
I finally understood,
That his life thread as born and bred
In that cabin in the wood.

CHORUS
Take me back to the cabin in the wood before I die…

It stands there today tucked away
Alone but not apart,
For in it’s walls there’s a voice that calls
You can hear it in your heart.
It warms the soul it makes you whole
A symbol for all that’s good.
It’s the gift of giving and the joy of living
In that cabin in the wood.

END CHORUS
Take me back to the cabin in the wood…
Take me back to the cabin in the wood…
Take me back to the cabin in the wood…
Where I can die… Where I can die…
Take me back to the cabin in the wood…
So I can die…
