Watson Lake

Watson Lake

There’s no work up in Faro
It’s freezing in White Horse
I’m stuck here in Ross River
Where bad luck runs its course
I still work the lumber camps
But jobs are hard to find
Up here in the north country
I’m falling on hard times

Chorus:
I miss the love that we once shared
Back in Watson Lake
Before the call of the wild
Carried me away
I thought I wanted something more
But that was a mistake
Everything that matters
Is back in Watson Lake

I think about her often
We talk once in a while
She got married years ago
Just had her second child
I asked her if she’s happy
She said she surely is
All the things that she has now
Are all the things I miss

Chorus:
I miss the love that we once shared
Back in Watson Lake
Before the call of the wild
Carried me away
I thought I wanted something more
But that was a mistake
Everything that matters
Is back in Watson Lake

She said it wasn’t my fault
That some things can’t be tamed
She wants me to feel better
But I know I’m to blame
If only things were different
If I had never left
I would be beside her fire
Not cold and by myself

Bridge:
I know I could be a good man now
I know I could settle down
If could sleep in her big brass bed
And not on the cold, cold ground

Chorus:
I miss the love that we once shared
Back in Watson Lake
Before the call of the wild
Carried me away
I thought I wanted something more
But that was a mistake
Everything that matters
Is back in Watson Lake
