Estevan elevators
...Saskatchewan, way down in the southeast corner,
the wheat is still growing, but I think, it's almost a goner;
coal mining is the Principal occupation in this town,
it's call lignite, also known as coal that's brown.

Two large coal burning electric plants dominate the sky,
while they drill for oil and natural gas, ain't nobody askin' why.
I would guess the output of power that's produced here,
lights a lot of homes, both far and near.
One of the two coal burning plants
Did I mention Hydro power?  The Alameda reservoir of Boundary Dam
Lignite Louie, he's been here quite a while.
