The Cobalt Song - Canadian Traditional/Folk Song Midi and Lyrics

The Cobalt SongCanadian Traditional/Folk Song
Lyrics

   Refrain
   For we'll sing a little song of Cobalt
   If you don't live there it's your own fault
   Oh you Cobalt
   Where the wintry breezes blow.
   Where all the silver comes from
   And you live a life and then some
   Oh you Colbalt
   You're the best old town I know.

You may talk about your cities
And all the towns you know
With trolley cars and pavements hard
And theatres where you go.
You can have your little auto
And carriages so fine
But it's hobnail boots and a flannel shirt
In Cobalt town for mine.

Old Porcupine is a muskeg
Elk Lake a fire trap
New Liskeard's just a country town
And Haileybury's just come back.
You can buy the whole of Latchford
For a nickel or a dime
But it's hobnail boots and a flannel shirt
In Cobalt town for mine.

We've got the only Lang Street
There's blind pigs everywhere
Old Cobalt Lake's a dirty place
There's mud all over the square.
We've got the darndest railroad
That never runs on time
But it's hobnail boots and a flannel shirt
In Cobalt town for mine.

We've bet our dough on hockey
And swore till the air was blue
The Cobalt stocks have emptied our socks
With the dividends cut in two.
They don't get any of our money
In darned old Porcupine
But it's hobnail boots and a flannel shirt
In Cobalt town for mine.
