OH LOVELY NEWFOUNDLAND

 You can smell the salt water on a warm summer night
When you're walkin' along by the shore
And a wave crashes up on the rocks with the tide
The silence is filled with a roar

 Oh lovely Newfoundland I do still miss you
Though we parted a long time ago
Oh lovely Newfoundland I do still miss you
And someday I'll be commin' home

 Fishermen lay out the blankets of cod that dry in the warm summer sun
Makin' a livin' ain't easy that way, they know that it has to be done
The old men still gather along the stage head and they talk about days that's gone by
They see the young fishermen fightin' the time just to find a way to get by

 Oh lovely Newfoundland I do still miss you
Though we parted a long time ago
Oh lovely Newfoundland I do still miss you
And someday I'll be commin' home

Cod stocks have dried up it's said they're all gone
But the Grand Banks they lure foreign men
If the government, they don't stand up for our rights
There'll be no home to go home to again

 Oh lovely Newfoundland I do still miss you
Though we parted a long time ago
Oh lovely Newfoundland I do still miss you
And someday I'll be commin' home
 

Oh lovely Newfoundland I do still miss you
Though we parted a long time ago
Oh lovely Newfoundland I do still miss you
And someday I'll be commin' home
Commin' home
Commin' home
