Artist's Notes

Seguin Falls is a ghost town in Seguin Township, Ontario, Canada. When the railway was still running, it was a station point on the track from Ottawa to Arnprior to Renfrew to Parry Sound. There is a small waterfall there on the Seguin River.


Lyrics

SEGUIN FALLS SERENADE

Lyrics by Alex O'Brien; All Rights Reserved

 

Seguin Falls, serenade

Her eyes were sapphire diamonds

Her voice was angel made

La, l-a la, la, la la, La, la la, la, la

La, la-la-, la, la la, La, la la, la, la

La la la, la la, la la la la

 

He came from a faraway valley

In Renfrew he hopped on the train

To see his Seguin Falls

Songstress again and again

They sat on the rocks by the falls

And made plans forevermore

They walked up the Nippissing Road

And discovered what lips are for

 

Seguin Falls, serenade

Seguin Falls, serenade

Her eyes were sapphire diamonds

Her voice was angel made

La, l-a la, la, la la, La, la la, la, la

La, la-la-, la, la la, La, la la, la, la

La la la, la la, la la la la

 

They turned the bush into farmland

They had a girl and a boy

They swatted at the black flies

Their days were filled with joy

And then the Great War did call him

He left to play his role

They stole from her, her one true love

But they couldn't destroy his soul

 

Seguin Falls, serenade

His eyes were emerald diamonds

His memory never fades

 

                               She still lives in that farmhouse

For our freedom he paid the cost

She taught their kids to honour

All the good men that were lost

She still sits on the rocks by the falls

And tells him her plans forevermore

Together they bask in the sunshine

And curse the bloody war

 

Seguin Falls, serenade

Seguin Falls, serenade

Their dreams were rough cut diamonds

As big as their hearts were brave

Oh, o-h oh, oh, oh oh, Oh, oh oh, oh, oh

Oh, oh oh, oh, oh oh, Oh, oh oh, oh, oh

Oh oh oh, oh oh, oh oh oh oh
