Saskatoon Sue

I was hitchin' Western Canada to a job with better pay
When a pickup driving woman stopped and said "Where you headin', eh?"
I said "I'm goin' to Moose Jaw". She said "Hey come on inside!
Take that pack off your back and let's go for a ride.
I rarely pick up strangers, but you look like my kinda man".
And with a fiddle-de-dee from Great Big Sea I climbed on in.
Saskatoon Sue, Saskatoon Sue
She won't leave me blue, my Saskatoon Sue
I'd walk across Canada, oh what I'd do
For my Saskatoon Sue

We intertwined our story like a boy and girl will do
Her eyes looking up at me, reflecting Big Sky blue.
She made me feel I was the one, she had a smile I won't forget.
I never got to Moose Jaw, a choice I don't regret


Saskatoon Sue, Saskatoon Sue
She won't leave me blue, my Saskatoon Sue
I'd walk across Canada, oh what I'd do
For my Saskatoon Sue

Now I'm waiting at the airport, grounded in B. C.
That sexy sassy Satchy Sue sure made a mess of me.
My plane's stuck on the tarmac. Now I know what I must do
Looks cold out there, but I don't care, I'm thumbin' on the road to
Saskatoon Sue, Saskatoon Sue
She won't leave me blue, my Saskatoon Sue
I'd walk across Canada, oh what I'd do
For my Saskatoon Sue

I would thumb all the way across Canada just to get to
My Saskatoon Sue
Forever, my Saskatoon Sue
