Canadian Boat Song

It is impossible to ascertain the creator of this beautiful song of exile and longing, and its genesis remains a mystery. In his The Canadian Boat Song: its Authorship and Associations (Stirling, 1935) Edward MacCurdy has suggested that the author was David Macbeth Moir, who was at that time in correspondence with John Galt, then in the employment of the Canada Company in Upper Canada.
