Ode for Buckshot Lake

Words and music by Arthur McGregor

Paddling down Buckshot Lake
On a summer afternoon
The canoe slides through the water
Like a lazy old blues tune
The dragon flies so big and fast
A helicopter’s twin
Paddling down Buckshot Lake
I think I’ll jump right in


The water is like velvet
I feel it everywhere
If time is still passing
Well I don’t really care
You’ve got to join me
But you don’t have to be here
Just find your own Buckshot Lake
And time will disappear

Swinging in the hammock
On a summer’s afternoon
The breeze blows so gently
Hey. There’s a call of a loon
A merganser mom paddles by
Followed by her fleet
It’s a magical place this Buckshot Lake
Life here is so sweet
