Recorded live at Stowe Cider, Stowe, Vermont.

lyrics

The subjects arrive at the castle
Most every night of the week
Looking for love and advice,
And a drink would be nice,
But they don’t know what it is that they seek.

She’s the Queen of Labrador City,
Wabush and all of the rest.
She’ll pour you a beer, and lend you an ear.
She rules all of Labrador West.

We used to wake to the sound of the shovel
Scraping the ore at first light.
Now the mine is shut down, but we’re still in this town
And the queen helps us get through the night.

She had a Montreal prince in her younger days.
Said he’d be coming back June.
But he never returned, and her lesson was learned.
Now the queen rules alone in this room.

She’s the Queen of Labrador City,
Wabush and all of the rest.
She’ll pour you a beer, and lend you an ear
She rules all of Labrador West.

The slot machines sit in the corner.
The jesters all sit at the bar.
There’s a game on tonight, and the Molson tastes right,
So I don’t think we need to go far.

I hear the loons calling out the last call,
And Gord’s singing his last song on TV.
So raise a glass to the man, and one more for the band,
And don’t forget a toast for the queen.

She’s the Queen of Labrador City,
Wabush and all of the rest.
She’ll pour you a beer, and lend you an ear.
She rules all of Labrador West.

She’s the Queen of Labrador City,
Wabush and all of the rest.
She’ll pour you a beer, and lend you an ear.
She rules all of Labrador West.
And we’re still here in Labrador West.
