(click this link to hear mp3 recording) Song for the salmon march

Melody based on the Oscar Brand song “something to sing about”

From the Vancouver Island to the shores of the forest land
the rivers are calling for sockeye once more
we can get out a show of hands, everyone understands
this land’s for fish and we’re marching for more

For the… water that’s clean and cold, for spawning like days of old
we stand for the bears and we stand for the sea
on the Vancouver Island shores, we march for the salmon lore
to save the last sockeye for an ocean that’s free

From the Vancouver Island to the shores of the forest land
the rivers are calling for sockeye once more
we can get out a show of hands, everyone understands
this land’s for sockeye – for you and for me
