  2. Don Messer Story Song Lyrics

    He was born, in ol' New Brunswick;
    In the early part of May Nineteen-O-nine.
    Six years old, he played the fiddle,
    At the barn dance on the old York County line.
    Every year, Don got better;
    He dreamed about that fortune down the track;
    Then he came down, to Saint John city,
    Where he formed the Old New Brunswick Lumberjacks.

    Don Messer played rings around the mountain;
    He played reels, all across the plain;
    He played all, that kind of music,
    That has made the country proud to say his name.

    Soon his band, would have a singer;
    Charlie Chamberlain would join the Messer fleet,
    And travel to, Prince Edward Island,
    To play on radio for twelve bucks everyweek

    On the air, right after supper;
    Commencing in the year of thirty-nine;
    The man would say,
    "It's Old Don Messer, and the Islanders form down the Maritime"

    Don Messer played rings around the mountain;
    He played reels, all across the plain;
    He played all, that kind of music,
    That has made the country proud to say his name.

    Coast to coast, with Don and Charlie;
    Duke Neilsen and Ray Simmons played it up.
    Warren MacRae, with Cec McEachern;
    Now the Islanders went touring to the top.
    How Charlie sang, with Margaret Osburne,
    And Waldo made the old piano twang;
    For the Queen, they played in concert,
    And it was magic how Don Messer's fiddle rang.

    Don Messer played rings around the mountain;
    He played reels, all across the plain;
    He played all, that kind of music,
    That has made the country proud to say his name.

    Seventeen years, on television;
    From nineteen-fifty-six to seventy-three,
    Don Messer made, his mark forever;
    The fiddling king of country music history.
    Throughout the world, it's undisputed;
    Don Messer and The Islanders were tops,
    And away down east, beside the ocean,
    The kind of music they began will never stop.

    Don Messer played rings around the mountain;
    He played reels, all across the plain;
    He played all, that kind of music,
    That has made the country proud to say his name,
    He has made the country proud to say his name.
