Woke up this morning in a hotel room in Montreal,
Was on my way home, had to catch a plane;
When I get back to Churchill town there I will remain,
And I'll never long for city life again.

I just came from Toronto where there's concrete to the sky,
Where the crowded subways almost wrecked my brain;
And the daily city sidewalks full of people on the go,
The pace would drive a country boy insane.

Let me see the sunset in a land that's wild and free,
Let me walk upon the ice and snow;
And let me feel the chinook wind blow soft against my face,
Take me where the Churchill River flows.

The hustle of big city streets I'm leavin' far behind,
It's just a faded memory in my brain;
When I get home tomorrow there's a sound I want to hear,
It's the roar of Churchill River once again.

The mighty falls that give us light so peaceful through the night,
But roar so loud when sunbeams melt the snow;
While the river just keeps movin' on and shiver takes a rest,
Till it dumps into the ocean far below.

Let me see the sunset in a land that's wild and free,
Let me walk upon the ice and snow;
And let me feel the chinook wind blow soft against my face,
Take me where the Churchill River flows.
And let me feel the chinook wind blow soft against my face,
Home is where the Churchill River flows.
