I'm going home to Newfoundland,
Back to where the living's grand,
Home to where I long to be,
Back once more to the land and the sea.

Seabirds cry, flyin' high,
Lords of all the sea and sky,
Calling me to come from afar,
Back to where the good people are.

Travelling 'round I've seen a lot,
Seen what all the folks have got;
They can have their gold and the rest,
I'm going back to the place I love best.

Come with me and you'll be blessed,
With such things as happiness;
Sound of surf and sight of the sea,
Newfoundland is the one place for me.
Newfoundland is the one place for me.
