Come on Home

Click Here for guitar tabs.

Oh the morning sun it shines, on the harbour and the bays
And the fishing boats they rise against the waves
Heading out once more their daily bread to make

As I stared out of the window of our old two story home
Like I done so many times before I roamed
Leaving behind every friendship that I own

Now the road's a little rocky, but I'll make it somewhere new
And new friendships I will give to hold so few
To remind me of old Newfoundland and you

So come on home Come on home to Newfoundland
Where the water of the ocean, shape our land
Come on home to Newfoundland greet the welcome if you can
We can walk the rocky shoreline hand in hand

As the old men who'll sit and tell you, of hard times in days gone by
And they'll tally up their stories with now and then a lie
They're the masters of the heart felt words of joy

And of those friendly smiling faces you can find in Newfoundland
Where the winds cannot they'll always shake your hand
And through hard times, they have always took their stand

Oh I miss the island dearly, of her dirt roads and her shores
And the weather beaten stages where the fish was stored
And each small town had their own old general store

So come on home, Come on home to Newfoundland
Where the waters of the ocean, shape our land
Come on home to Newfoundland, greet the welcome if you can
We can walk the rocky shoreline hand in hand

In the year of 97, its our anniversary
Its 500 years since Cabot sailed the sea
Began a history that's home for you and me

For some day I'm going back there and then no more will I roam
For no other place I've been, can I call home
I long for family and friends I left behind

So come on home, Come on home to Newfoundland
Where the waters of the ocean shape our land
Come on home to Newfoundland, greet the welcome if you can
We can walk the rocky shoreline hand in hand

Come on home to Newfoundland
Greet the welcome if you can
We can walk the rocky shoreline hand in hand
We can walk the rocky shoreline hand in hand
