John And Mary Lyrics

Maid Of The Mist Lyrics

(Mary Ramsey)

Centuries ago, for protection and prosperity,
The Niagara Indians of western New York and
Southern Ontario would annually sacrifice the
Fairest maiden of the tribe to the Great Spirit.
The young 'maid of the mist', in a white canoe
Filled with fruits and flowers, would proudly steer
Her own course over the mighty Falls. Legend has
It that the ghostly apparition of a beautiful Indian
Princess can still be seen in the mist below the
Cascading waters.
