Where Are The Heroes?


Oh, where are your heroes,
O Canada?
Oh, where are your heroes
This day?

Oh, where are your Lincolns,
And Boones and your Crocketts?
Oh, where do your Ross's
And Washingtons lay?

I have no such heroes
To celebrate.
I have no such heroes
Who fell.

I've only Jacques Cartier,
Cabot and Mackenzie,
Champlain, Simon Fraser
And Louis Riel.

Then, who are your heroes,
O Canada?
Then, who are your heroes
To date?

My heroes are farmers
And miners and loggers.
`Tis ord'nary people
Who've made my land great!
