Stompin' Tom Connors – Ferryman Ferryman- lyrics

>From Espanola ta Manitoulina cross the channel I'm bound
I heard a story in Tobermory that my baby's in Owen Sound
I was close behind her but I couldn't find her so to Meaford I'm away-
Down to Collingwood that' s where I stood at the bottom of the Georgian Bay
Ferryman Ferryman! Have you seen my Marianne?
In my search for her I've been- around the bay and back again
Around the bay and back again...
>From Wasaga ta Penatanguishine north ta Parry Sound
There's 30, 000's of lakes and Islands and where can she be found
>From grit my baby never hit French river and Sudbury they say
She took a ferry in Tobermory across the Georgian Bay...
Chorus: then-Guitar lick.
>From Espanola to Manitoulina cross the channel I'm bound
Another story in Tobermory said to try old Hepworth town
I was close behind her but I couldn't find her
So I guess I'll have to stay-Without my lovely on lonely island
In the middle of the Georgian Bay
Ferry Man-repeat 3 X and end....
