Lyrics:

There aren’t enough days in a lifetime that can stand up and live on their own
When life gives enough pause for rewind, those are days memories won’t leave alone

From the Sydenham shoreline, in days long ago where they got the old Mac Craft boats ready to float
Generations of craftsmen would employ all their skills and their mark still remains and probably always will

Once a year, home in Wallaceburg, old voices can be heard
From that singing bridge as we look back in time
Grandpa, take me there; we’ve just one life to share
Let’s head home again … you … and me one more time

There are so many things that can happen that can steal the faith out from your heart
But there are days you’ll wish to recapture looking back is a good place to start

Rippled waves on the water and smiles on the shore; and the wooden boats shine as they did once before
The time moves in slow motion, if just for a day; a celebration with Pard Martin’s dream on display

Once a year, home in Wallaceburg, old voices can be heard
From that singing bridge as we look back in time
Dad, please take me there; we’ve just one life to share
Let’s head home again … you … and me one more time

We’re so prone to distraction, living just in reaction to whatever takes place
But with a little pro-acting, we can create the days time can never replace

As the sun sets the time down, and the moon wakes the sky
I’ll carry you in my heart once this day says goodbye

Once a year, home in Wallaceburg, old voices can be heard
From that singing bridge as we look back in time
Son, please take me there; we’ve just one life to share
Let’s head home again … you … and me one more time

Once a year, home in Wallaceburg, old voices can be heard
From that singing bridge as we look back in time
Grandson, take me there; we’ve just one life to share
Let’s head home again … you … and me one more time
