Everybody Back Home Misses You

This song's for every Newfie boy
A thousand miles from home
Feeling just a little down and blue
A man must feed his family
If he's any man at all
So here's a little back home news for you

The Rock she's still afloat
She did not move one inch
And there's nothing like a feed of fish and brewis
The summers feel like Heaven
The winters sure are cold
And everybody back home misses you

From the coal mines of Cape Breton
To Alberta's frozen north
Newfoundlanders work as time goes by
You can take him from the island
You can put him anywhere
But you'll never take the island from the boy

The Rock she's still afloat
She did not move one inch
And there's nothing like a feed of fish and brewis
The summers feel like Heaven
The winters sure are cold
And everybody back home misses you

The fishing's not that good this year
Unemployment's up
Politician's, they sure blow my mind
Someone sais they saw caplin roll
But that could have been a dream
And old Harry's up in Heaven doing fine

The Rock she's still afloat
She did not move one inch
And there's nothing like a feed of fish and brewis
The summers feel like Heaven
The winters sure are cold
And everybody back home misses you
