Saltwater Cowboys
See Also The Saltwater Cowboy Comes Home

A Newfie's a Newfie wherever he goes
It don't seem to matter the cut of his clothes
The gleam in his eyes and the way that he walks
And the true Newfie tone in the way that he talks

So, by the Lord dyin', by the thunderin' gee
How are you doin' you son-of-a-b?
You can't fool your old man by dressin' like that
You're still just a Newfie in a Calgary hat.

Now, over the years when things aren't the best
A lot of our fellers head out for the west
But everyone knows that they ain't gonna stay
They'll always come back with those up-along ways

No one suspected we'd ever have oil
The Newfies took of for Alberta a while
They traded their rubbers and the sou'wester caps
For rodeo boots and big Calgary hats

So, by the Lord dyin', by the thunderin' gee
How are you doin' you son-of-a-b?
You can't fool your old man by dressin' like that
You're still just a Newfie in a Calgary hat.

Now , the saltwater cowboy is new you'll agree
It seems we've created a new kind of breed
With our boots and our hats and our talk about oil
We even talk Newfie in a soft-Texas style

So, by the Lord dyin', by the thunderin' gee
How are you doin' you son-of-a-b?
You can't fool your old man by dressin' like that
You're still just a Newfie in a Calgary hat.
