    The Last Saskatchewan Pirate
    as done by Captain Tractor

    Well, I used to be a farmer and I made a living fine
    I had a little stretch of land along the C.P. Line
    But times went by and though I tried, the money wasn't there,
    And bankers came and took my land, and told me "fair is fair".

    I looked for every kind of job, the answer always no
    "Hire you now," they'd always laugh, "we just let twenty go!"
    The government they promised me a measly little sum
    But I've got too much pride to end up just another bum

    Then I thought, who gives a damn if all the jobs are gone,
    I'm gonna be a pirate on the river Saskatchewan.

    And it's a heave-ho, high-ho, coming down the Plains
    Stealing wheat and barley and all the other grains
    And it's a ho-hey, high-hey, farmers bar your doors
    When you see the Jolly Roger on Regina's mighty shores

    Well, you'd think the local farmers would know that I'm at large
    But just the other day I found an unprotected barge
    I snuck up right behind them and they were none the wiser
    I rammed their ship and sank it, and I stole their fertilizer.

    A bridge outside of Moose Jaw spans a mighty river
    Farmers cross in so much fear their stomachs are a-quiver
    'Cause they know that Captain Tractor is hiding in the bay,
    I'll jump the bridge and knock them cold and sail off with their hay.

    And it's a heave-ho, high-ho, coming down the Plains
    Stealing wheat and barley and all the other grains
    And it's a ho-hey, high-hey, farmers bar your doors
    When you see the Jolly Roger on Regina's mighty shores

    Well, Mountie Bob he chased me, he was always at my throat
    He followed on the shoreline, 'cause he didn't own a boat,
    But the cutbacks were a-coming and the Mountie lost his job
    So now he's sailing with me and we call him Salty Bob.

    A swinging sword, a skull-and-bones, and pleasant company,
    I never pay my income tax and screw the G.S.T. (Screw it!)
    A sailing down to Saskatoon, the terror of the sea
    If you wanna reach the Co-op, boy, you gotta get by me!
    (Ha-Har!)

    And it's a heave-ho, high-ho, coming down the Plains
    Stealing wheat and barley and all the other grains
    And it's a ho-hey, high-hey, farmers bar your doors
    When you see the Jolly Roger on Regina's mighty shores

    Well, the pirate life's appealing but you don't just find it here
    I hear that in North Alberta there's a band of buccaneers
    They roam the Athabasca from Smith to Fort McKay
    And you're gonna lose your Stetson if you have to pass their way

    Well, winter is a-coming and a chill is in the breeze
    My pirate days are over once the river starts to freeze
    I'll be back in springtime, and now I've got to go
    I hear there's lots of plundering down in New Mexico.

    And it's a heave-ho, high-ho, coming down the Plains
    Stealing wheat and barley and all the other grains
    And it's a ho-hey, high-hey, farmers bar your doors
    When you see the Jolly Roger on Regina's mighty shores

    And it's a heave-ho, high-ho, coming down the Plains
    Stealing wheat and barley and all the other grains
    And it's a ho-hey, high-hey, farmers bar your doors
    When you see the Jolly Roger on Regina's mighty shores

    And it's a heave-ho, high-ho, coming down the Plains
    Stealing wheat and barley and all the other grains
    And it's a ho-hey, high-hey, farmers bar your doors
    When you see the Jolly Roger on Regina's mighty shores
    When you see the Jolly Roger on Regina's mighty shores
    When you see the Jolly Roger on Regina's mighty shores
    (Tim P. Ryan)
