Just Beyond The Mountain
(Labrador Black Spruce)

Just beyond the mountain,
my mind it wanders back,
As a lad in my early twenties,
just a packsack on my back;
I dreamed of life and freedom,
in my trapper's camp at night,
I knew every bend in the river
and the wildlife by sight.

I dreamed of a mighty forest
with timber reaching high,
And shared with old mother nature
winter's cold and frosty night;
Just beyond the mountain,
the trapper will go no more,
His cabins have long vanished
from the forests of Labrador.

Just beyond the mountain,
my mind it wanders back,
As a lad in my early twenties,
just a packsack on my back;
Just beyond the mountain,
the trapper will go no more,
His cabins have long vanished
from the forests of Labrador.
His cabins have long vanished
from the forests of Labrador.
