Didee & Didoo – Poem “Long Guns”


Long guns they used to make,

so more beaver pelts they would take.

Beaver pelts were piled high,

so that long guns they will buy.

Hudson Bay traders,

were fur graders.

Pelts were piled to the barrel of the gun,

and the fur deal was done.

The guns were heavy and long,

because they made them wrong.

Hudson Bay started making shorter ones,

because who needs longs guns?

Shorter guns they made,

for a smaller pile beaver pelts to trade.
