The Singing Newfoundlander (Michael T Wall)

I left my home in Newfoundland many years ago,
With my guitar and some down east songs to do a country show;
I've been to many places, to far off foreign lands,
I'm the Singing Newfoundlander from the Island Newfoundland.

I'm the Singing Newfoundlander and I sing a happy song,
Tonight I'm on my way back home to the place where I was born -
CORNER BROOK!
All my friends are waiting there just to shake my hand,
I'm the Singing Newfoundlander from the Island Newfoundland.

Spoken:
I've sung about my island in countries far and near,
On the Opry down in Nashville I even have appeared;
I've been down to Australia, Poland and Japan,
I'm the Singing Newfoundlander from the Island Newfoundland.

I'm the Singing Newfoundlander and I sing a happy song,
Tonight I'm on my way back home to the isle where I was born;
All my friends are waiting there just to shake my hand,
I'm the Singing Newfoundlander from the Island Newfoundland.
Yes, the Singing Newfoundlander is going home to Newfoundland.
