Be Proud You're A Newfie

The old man was pacing the floor up and down
Hiding his tears with his head hanging down
His last son was packing his suitcase to go
In search of the rainbow and the big pot of gold

He said Son, you'll see places and the strangest of things
You'll cross many bridges before I see you again
So write to your momma, God bless her soul
And be proud you're a Newfie wherever you go

Don't try to be someone that no one can touch
And always help someone who's down on their luck
If you find a good woman you give her your love
Be proud of your wages and thank God above

He said Son, you'll see places and the strangest of things
You'll cross many bridges before I see you again
So write to your momma, God bless her soul
And be proud you're a Newfie wherever you go

Son, money means nothing to a man without friends
Smile when you lose and don't brag when you win
Owe no man nothing and don't reach too high
Be happy, be careful, I love you, goodbye

He said Son, you'll see places and the strangest of things
You'll cross many bridges before I see you again
So write to your momma, God bless her soul
And be proud you're a Newfie wherever you go
