Legacy Of Cabotís Newfoundland

John Prince and A Piece Of The Rock

 

Have you ever really listened to the ocean,

And answered its beckoning call.

Have you ridden on the waves of its streamers

And felt the swell of its rise and fall.

Have you ever had the courage to go sailing

On waters where no one sailed before.

You have sailed the ship of John Cabot

And found a home on Newfoundland shore.

 

Yes, we are a sea-fearing people,

With saltwater blood in our veins.

Boats have been our cradles and our coffins

A fierce humble pride still remains.

Living on hearts filled with courage,

Harvesting the sea and the land.

Living on our love of tradition

A legacy of Cabotís Newfoundland .

 

Have you ever seen an old Salt gazing

Seaward from rocky island shore

Five centuries gone before his vision

Hereís hopiní on five centuries more.

And for the strain that long has sustained us,

Family ties that will always bind.

Where every harbour offers sanctuary

And every home offers peace of mind.

 

Yes, we are a sea-fearing people

With saltwater blood in our veins

Boats have been our cradles and our coffins

A fierce humble pride still remains

Living on hearts filled with courage

Harvesting the sea and the land

Living on our love of tradition

A legacy of Cabotís Newfoundland .

 

 

Cause Newfoundland has long been an anchor,

In a world filled with troubled seas.

Together weíll survive through tomorrow

With our pride in Cabotís legacy.

Newfoundland will always be an anchor

In a world filled with troubled seas.

Together weíll survive through tomorrow

With our pride in Cabotís legacy.

 

Together weíll survive through tomorrow

With our pride in Cabotís legacy.
