Something keeps passin' in my mind,
A little white flower I left so far behind;
She can compare to the fairest in the land,
'Cause she is my white rose of Newfoundland.

I left a long time ago and headed for old T.O.
To see if I could earn my way;
I soon found out in this old city that things are rough,
So I'm headed home again, I've had enough.

I called her on the phone, told her I was coming home,
If she could be there when my boat arrived;
She said, don't worry, honey, for you know that I'll be there,
I realized how much I missed that rose.

She's my white rose of Newfoundland I left so far behind,
And I'll always remember her until the day I die;
There's one thing I surely know, I'm going home to stay,
To my white rose of Newfoundland back home in Trinity Bay.

I finally reached the island where I'd like to call my home,
She was there waiting for me, standing all alone;
She threw her arms around me saying, never leave no more,
I said, don't worry, darling, for I never more will roam.

I remember her standing there as pretty as could be,
That little white rose of mine will live in memory;
And I can't recall how many times I wanted her to know,
My white rose of Newfoundland, I'll always love her so.

She's my white rose of Newfoundland I left so far behind,
And I'll always remember her until the day I die;
There's one thing I surely know, I'm going home to stay,
To my white rose of Newfoundland back home in Trinity Bay.
She's my white rose of Newfoundland back home in Trinity Bay.
