Tilting Come Home Year-1987 (Mrs Sara Sexton)

The TEA brochure came. In other words it said,
"Come Home Year preparations are full-speed ahead;
You'll want to see things we've planned for a bang-up time,
So get yourselves together and get in the ferry line."

Come Home Year is a time for sharing,
The memories of days long gone past;
But most of all it's joyful hearts uniting,
So let's thank God that we are truly blessed.

Some of you have moved away and lived in cities grand,
But still you dream of times like these back home in Newfoundland;
You've come back home to join the fun away from work and stress,
So let your hair down, kick your heels and show your happiness.

Come Home Year is a time for sharing,
The memories of days long gone past;
But most of all it's joyful hearts uniting,
So let's thank God that we are truly blessed.

You'll miss familiar faces, the lifestyle's changed a lot,
You'll miss the morning music of the engines' putt-putt-putt;
But those of you who have the time, go find your favourite spot,
Like Oliver's and Sandy Cove, Sloan's Hill and Lane's Rock.

Come Home Year is a time for sharing,
The memories of days long gone past;
But most of all it's joyful hearts uniting,
So let's thank God that we are truly blessed.

Let's make a toast to Tilting folks who have prepared this time,
And praise their optimism in the face of many trials;
Salute Fogo Island where talents do abound,
Because right here the young and old can never be put down.

Come Home Year is a time for sharing,
The memories of days long gone past;
But most of all it's joyful hearts uniting,
So let's thank God that we are truly blessed.

Come Home Year is a time for sharing,
The memories of days long gone past;
But most of all it's joyful hearts uniting,
So let's thank God that we are truly blessed.

Yes, let's thank God that we are truly blessed.
