Trout River Living On My Mind (Roy Payne)

Trout River living on my mind,
Trout River living on my mind,
Momma standing by the stove,
Going fishing in the cove,
Trout River living on my mind.

It's been a long time since I've been gone,
I've seen it all and wrote a thousand songs;
I've tasted both the bitter and sweet wine,
I've had my share of ups and downs;
Lived my life in a hundred towns,
But now I've got Trout River living on my mind.

Trout River living on my mind,
Trout River living on my mind,
Momma standing by the stove,
Going fishing in the cove,
Trout River living on my mind.

What makes a body want to roam,
In search of what he's got at home?
It seems to me I've been away forever,
Why do eyes that see be dark and blind?
Half my life I've thrown away,
But I see brighter, better days,
Now I've got Trout River living on my mind.

Trout River living on my mind,
Trout River living on my mind,
Momma standing by the stove,
Going fishing in the cove,
Trout River living on my mind.

The town of Trout River was incorporated in 1966. Its first settler was George Crocker and, until 1880, this family was the town's only inhabitants. The first census in 1857 reported a population of 13. By 1891, the population was 163 primarily because of the beginning of the local lobster fishery. Until the late 1950s, when a rough road was built to it, the community remained very isolated. It was not until 1973 when Gros Morne National Park was established that the road system improved. Many of the town's residents now work at Gros Morne or are involved in the tourist industry.
