Swim Back the Sockeye to Me

Share Button

Written by Andy Mathisen to the tune “my Bonnie lies over the ocean”

The Sockeye migrate to the Ocean
The Sockeye swim swim back from the Sea
But when they pass under a fish farm
They come down with a fish farm disease

Swim back.. swim back.. swim back the sockeye to me – to me.
Swim back.. swim back.. let the sockeye swim back to BC

The Sockeye all face many dangers
from human, from fowl and fin
but worse is from fish farming sea lice
when the sockeye migrations begin

Swim back.. swim back.. swim back the sockeye to me – to me.
Swim back.. swim back.. let the sockeye swim back to BC

So help us protect this great treasure
as the sockeye migrates in BC
we can all watch the Sockeye with pleasure
when the fish farms Get Out of the sea!

Many thanks Andy for this song (I hope you don’t mind that I changed a few words)

This song is posted on the Salmon Are Sacred website – If you have slow speed dial up (like I do) you can turn off all the media in your browser and read some words. It takes quite a while to load but if you hang in there and when it stops press the refresh button – once there, you can read some great postings in their forum.

We will be singing this on Saturday May 8th – meet at the Lumby Public Market!
