To the queen of Durham City, you've been looking much more pretty
Now that you've become someone's wife
It's been long since you've told me "It's like I have known you,
Since the very first years of my life"

Years have come and gone since you and I once met
A friendship and a freedom that we both shall not forget
As I pass you on the street I think of who we both become
How our lives have changed and where we both went wrong

The gods surely must be pissed as the rain it did persist
And the crops slowly dissapeared beneath the waves
A deluge like no other, hold me close my dear mother
For I fear that this one will send us to our graves

Remembering the triumphs and the times we worked so hard
The failures and the winters in which we nearly starved
Thinking of the times this land has kept us out of harm
To think one day we're doing to have to sell this goddamn farm

So I took a trip, left this place for a while
Up the mighty St-Laurence, down to Prince Edward's Isle
Where I stayed with some locals, saw my old friend Brett
I sang songs with young Patrick, a night not soon to forget
