This is an old French Canadian (Québécois) song that I sang while playing the ukulele. I sang the first verse and I wrote original lyrics for the second verse to describe my winter trip on the train from Ottawa to Sarnia during the snowy December of 2009. I later filmed the train passing by my place in Ottawa and I recorded the song in a basement in Aylmer, Québec in May 2010. I also did a video called "Un Canadien errant - vue d'un train en hiver" that shows the snowy landscape from a train car. Here is a PDF of the ukulele chords. http://ukulelenorth.ca/UnCanadien_err...
================= Un Canadien errant =================
Un Canadien errant banni de ses foyers Un Canadien errant banni de ses foyers Parcourait en pleurant, des pays étrangers Parcourait en pleurant, des pays étrangers
Un jour triste et pensif, assis à bord du train Un jour triste et pensif, assis à bord du train Filant à la campagne, sans ami sauf la neige Sans ami sauf la neige, coincé dans ce manège
