Ode To Timmins And South Porcupine Song - Poem by Paul Henry Dallaire

There a place East of Sault St.Marie where I go
On highway eleven North of Toronto
Near the Xtrata Kidd Creek copper mine
It's the city of Timmins and South Porcupine

There's the Hollinger mine and the Shania Twain Center
So proud of whose bed have your boots been under
And Les Costello the Flyin Father and Schumacher town
It's the place where Frank and Peter Mahovlich were born

In summer the farmers rise early at dawn
Their hands tell a story of Ancestors gone
They'll feed this great Nation with tractors and hoes
At the ol Mountjoy market their produce are sold


When I was a boy we'd play cowboys and Indians
With my trusty dog Ginger by old Feldman's mill
Roy Rogers and the Rocket man they were my heroes
At a nickel for popcorn and two bits for the show

There's the one forty four goes South to Sudbury
On the way there's Gogama Indian territory
And were next of kin to the great Trans Canada Highway
You go West to Alberta and East P.E.I.

Chorus: End.
