Newfie Girl

Well, I left Toronto city on a train eastward bound
Headed for Newfoundland and my own hometown
I fell asleep in a coach car as the rain was pouring down
Goin' home to marry me a Newfie girl

Then I woke up in that car - the sun was shining through
I had a vision, love, I thought that I saw you
You were standin' right in front of me and set my heart a-whirl
Goin' home to marry me a Newfie girl

Well, I changed trains in Montreal, headed down Nova Scotia way
To get the William Carson to take me across the bay
I was so happy I heard myself say I'm
Goin' home to marry me a Newfie girl

At last I'm in North Sydney, I think I'll have a beer
I can see the William Carson tied up at the pier
I'll have to save five dollars to pay the man my fare
I'm Goin' home to marry me a Newfie girl

I guess around about midnight when we got under way
I figured on six hours to take me across the bay
And then I went into the lounge to pass the time away
Goin' home to marry me a Newfie girl

Well, I must have drunk quite a few 'cause the time it sure went fast
And when I walked up on the deck I could see old Port Aux Basques
And I heard someone say we'll soon be home at last
Goin' home to marry me a Newfie girl

My heart started beating faster as I stepped on Newfie soil
I felt a glow all over and I broke into a smile
I know the trip's not over yet, it'll be another while
Goin' home to marry me a Newfie girl

Well, I've been gone so long, my friend, I didn't hear the news
They say the Bullet's off the line - the bus we'll have to use
So, let's get started right away, we've got no time to lose
Goin' home to marry me a Newfie girl

Then I woke and realized this wasn't happening to me
For I had been in Kingston since 1983
But when I serve my time, my friends, and they set me free
I'll go home and marry me a Newfie girl
