Tribute to Newfoundland

Click Here for guitar tabs.

'Twas just a year ago today I left my emerald isle
To the shores of lovely Newfoundland I've travelled many a mile
The people there they welcomed me with open heart and hand
Sure, I thought that I was home again in dear old Ireland

There's Kellys, Murphys and Molones, Briens and O'Hares
As fine a bunch of lads, me boys, as ever can compare
As farmers and as fishermen they came across the sea
To this island they call Newfoundland, My second home to me

From her pine clad hills and mountain glens to her shores of shingling sand
God bless and keep you as you are ... we love you Newfoundland

From Corner Brook to Carbonear and on to old St. John's
You'll always find a welcome there and hear some Irish songs
It lifts my heart and it fills my eyes to hear those songs again
And it makes us proud that we can say we are Irishmen

When the time has come and I must go to my land across the sea
This lavely isle of Newfoundland will still be calling me

From her pine clad hills and mountain glens to her shores of shingling sand
God bless and keep you as you are ... we love you Newfoundland

Spoken:God bless and keep you as you are ... we love you Newfoundland
