An Operetta

By Janet L. Strang.

THE NORTH PEACE RIVER FOLK ARE DAMMED

When I was a lass I took a turn,

Up the Peace River Valley where the waters churn.

Over meadows green to the canyon steep,

The natural beauty made a mortal weep.

CHORUS:

Over Meadows green to the canyon steep,

The natural beauty made a mortal weep.

And I can remember when it was a treat,

In the winter time when all would meet.

To skate on the ice and slide on the snow,

That was on the Peace River in the days long ago.

CHORUS:

To skate on the ice and slide on the snow,

That was on the Peace River in the days long ago.
