Star Man (Ode to Koo Koo Sints David Thompson)
Star Man
He’s the Star Man
Drafting Rupert’s Land
Going to map Columbia’s highway
Via skyway
To the ocean
Over mountain, meadow and ice fields
He’s the Star Man
Sounding sextants
All his surveys
Fervent with dreaming and believing
Going to get there
Going to last forever
The Star Man
Star Man Koo Koo Sints Star Man

A white flower of a blameless life
His beauty Charlotte served as country wife
Ktunaxa met them on a snowy morn
Voyageurs paddling through a windy storm chorus

Tobacco fathoms swirled into the night
Full quiver and bows bathed in firelight
A mild countenance with a manly face
Brown muscled saviors spared them hungry graves

Kootenay stories that Goliath lives
Star Man’s behemoth, found above the cliffs
Unsolved wonders as he travelled on
Furs for muskets ‘til Pacific’s dawn
