Track Name: The Wild Horses of Sable Island

Taken from, our old home.
To a sliver of sand, on the ocean.

On our way, to the coal mine.
We were, left behind.

I carry no man.
So I can run, as fast as I can.
Without a wagon, or plow to slow me down.
I have no fence, just the water’s edge.
Though its true I have no stable to lay my tired head.
Track Name: Runners of the Woods

Waste no time, I'm going to make my way.
Into the wild, steady pace.
Up the stream, and across the lake.
Further I paddle, all day.

Trade away all I have.
Pelts and skins I’ll bring them back.
Fortune made in the summer days.
Turn back home before the frost lay.
On my mind I want to stay.
Join the people and learn their ways.
