Together on the eve of the new year 
In a logging camp in Gatineau 
Far away from the ones we love 
In the desolation and the snow 

Drunk Baptiste says he has a plan 
A plan to travel across this land 
We'll be with our family tonight and be back before first light 
We must run La Chasse Galerie 
Make a deal with the Devil 
He'll give us what we need 
On a flying canoe we ride 
To the révellion or die 

And then the Devil appeared and the rules he made quite clear 
Touch not a cross or swear on the Lord's name Or your soul is lost
Be back before the light as well 
If not it's straight to hell 
We put our fears aside 
To the rules we will abide 

Let's ride tonight across the sky
Our souls are on the line 
To be with our families tonight 

The skies are so clear 
So much we're eased of all our fear, look out
For the church ahead 
Turn away or we'll be dead 
Not far to the révellion 
So long since I've been home 
Not long 'till the journey's done 
And the party has just begun 

Let's ride tonight! 
Across the sky 
Our souls are on the line 
To be with our families tonight 
We'll meet the Devil and play his game
The wage is worth what we will gain 

The drink ever did flow 

And the dancing never slowed 
Alive and we're all here 
So raise your glass and give a cheer 

The Devil's eyes are watching us

Now our time is almost up

And as the clock struck five we had to leave or die 
We said tearful goodbyes 
But now we must take to the skies 

Onward we went on through the fog 
Our boat did hit a cross but not a 
Shard touched one of us 
Our souls are not yet lost 

Let's ride tonight across the skies 
Our souls are on the line 
To be with our families tonight
We'll meet the Devil and play his game 
The wage is worth what we will gain

The drunk Baptiste nearly said the words that'd damn us all to hell 
With a swift hit he met my fist and overboard he fell 
The rest of us who made it back 
We all did agree 
Never attempt La Chasse Gallerie
