& Carolyn Victoria Mill

3rd prize winner of
(and written especially for)
the Vancouver Folk Music Festival
Pickin' a Folk Star contest



without their help the festival
might not be here           
they built it from the ground up
just like pioneers            
with glowing hearts
for thee we rise         
though you may not know their names    
we wont forget
just how much they're worth      
its an enduring kind of fame       
when you put
others first      


They man the gates,
and clear your plates          
even bring you beers           

with smiling faces
even when the bugs appear          
not even rain
can douse their flame         
And when it comes to security          
they keep the peace
and maintain the cheer     
like the mountains
surround the sea      
they protect
 without fear         
they come together like a choir
in unity       
could teach a singer something
about harmony         
you are the true stars
every year        
oh its true that they got in free         
but when you work in the house of merch
like a dog for a day or three         
all you get        
is a lovely shirt          

Reid Jamieson: Vocals, Ukulele.
