Bar-Room BalladsTo Dawson Town came Percy Brown from London on the Thames.

A pane of glass was in his eye, and stockings on his stems.

Upon the shoulder of his coat a leather pad he wore,

To rest his deadly rifle when it wasn't seeking gore;

The which it must have often been, for Major Percy Brown,

According to his story was a hunter of renown,

Who in the Murrumbidgee wilds had stalked the kangaroo

And killed the cassowary on the plains of Timbuctoo.

And now the Arctic fox he meant to follow to its lair,

And it was also his intent to beard the Artic hare...

And at the apparation, whith its glass eye and plus-fours,

From fifty alcoholic throats responded fifty roars.

With shouts of stark amazement and with whoops of sheer delight,

They surged around the stranger, but the first was Deacon White.

"We welcome you," he cried aloud, "to this the Great White Land.

The Artic Brotherhood is proud to grip you by the hand.

Yea, sportsman of the bull-dog breed, from trails of far away,

To Yukoners this is indeed a memorable day.

Our jubilation to express, vocabularies fail...
