​Loyal She Remains

This song is by Tamarack.

We came overland from Albany, Yankee rebels on our heels
We stole a boat in Sackett's Harbour and we headed for Presqu'il
Settled hard by Kingston, safe from revolution's flames
And it's loyal she began boys, loyal she remains

Loyal she began boys, loyal she remains
Content to live our lives in peace beneath a monarch's reins
Let the rebels rot with all of their ill-gotten gains
But it's loyal she began boys, loyal she remains

We saw the writing on the wall right after Valley Forge
When the rebels stood for Washington, we held for old King George
Kin folk turned on kin, blood like water in the veins
But it's loyal she began boys, loyal she remains

We lost our farms, we lost our friends, but we never lost our pride
No amount of traitor gold could lure us to a traitor's side
A people's honour blemished once will never lose the stain
So it's loyal she began boys, loyal she remains
