lyrics

i left at a young age and I watched you cry
i went in search of a prosperous life

but years down the line your letters found me
i soon came to wonder what could have been

i heard they were carving a route through the land
and seeing the advantage, i lent my hand

'cause i'm dying to reach you by the lakeside
so i'll follow the erie canal

bound by the mountains, bordered by gold
too much to die for, walking the road

and I'm dying to reach you by the lakeside
so i'll follow the erie canal

the love in your letters keeps me on track
the great lakes are waiting and I'll soon be back

'cause I'm dying to reach you by the lakeside
so I'll follow the erie canal
