LYRICS

My canoe runs on water, doesn’t need no gasoline
My canoe runs on water, prettiest thing you’ve ever seen

 
She was made in Peterborough, out of love and cedar-wood
Run your hand along her gunnel landing; don’t it feel so good!
 
My canoe runs on water, doesn’t need no gasoline
My canoe runs on water, prettiest thing you’ve ever seen
 
Well, she floats on dreams and wishes and tonight I’ll dream of you
You’ll be in the bow, we’ll be paadlin’ down into the blue
 
piano solo
 
My paddle’s keen and bright, flashing with silver
Follow the wild goose flight, dip dip and swing
Blue lake and rocky shore, I will return one more
Bm didy ah dah, bm didy ah dah …
 
My canoe, my canoe…
 
Well there’s no-one on the river so it’s only you and me
This little paddlin’ song carries us along the sweetest flowing stream
 
My canoe runs on water, doesn’t need no gasoline
My canoe runs on water, prettiest thing you’ve ever seen
