RORY GET YOUR DORY
(Eddie LeGere)

In Cape Breton Island, down Nova Scotia way,
Lies a little fishing village; they call it Pleasant Bay.
No one ever hurries there; a day seems like a year;
And any time you're passing by, these words you're sure to hear:

Big Willie Dan MacDonald, and Rory John McNeil,
Are the finest herring fisherman that ever used the creel.
Known to all Cape Bretoners, from the Bay to Whitney Pier,
Band when Willie Dan meets Rory John, these words you're sure to hear:


Words by: Eddie LeGere
Recorded in Toronto 1966 but written in the early 50s according to what Eddie told me.
