The Saltwater Cowboy Comes Home
See Also Saltwater Cowboys

I was up on the mainland for many a year
Spending me money on woman and beer
Slaving in the oil fields and feeling right good
Got caught in the mail rush and lies like you would

I'm a saltwater cowboy and I'm coming home
All out of money so I got a loan
Sold me big boots and me Calgary hat
So stay where you're to 'til I comes where you're at

The bottom fell out of the barrel for sure
There nothing left now but a lock on the door
I worked in the tar sands till my fingers were red
So I'm out on the oil rigs and into oil skins instead

Now I'm home and there's oil round the rock
I didn't fool me old man with all my big talk
I got back me rubbers and me south western cap
Now I'm sitting on the dock with me screech in me lap

I'm a saltwater cowboy and I'm coming home
All out of money so I got a loan
Sold me big boots and me Calgary hat
So stay where you're to 'til I comes where you're at

Now a saltwater cowboy was some kind of breed
Life on the mainland just wasn't for me
Trying to talk grand with me king tops up
Now that I'm home let me raise up me roof

By the lord dying by the tundering gee
I'm doing great you big son of a bee
You won't fool your old man dressing like that
I'm still just a Newfie but no Calgary hat
I'm still just a Newfie but no Calgary hat
