In the cold Canadian waters,
north from the coast of Maine,
There's an island called Newfoundland,
swept by snow, wind and rain;
On the island, there's a village
with its customs and its ways,
The little town of Carmanville,
my home of childhood days.

Those childhood days were something,
carefree all the time,
There's a girl in every story
and you know there's one in mine;
She broke my heart so often
and it stays a little sore,
That's the reason I left home
and can't go back no more.

Where the people make a living
on the land and on the sea,
There are people on the island
that mean the world to me;
I wish I had the power
to change the path of time,
And live again in Newfoundland,
my home of childhood time.

Spoken:
I'd love to watch the sailboats
as they glide across the bay,
To see again the farmers sow
the seeds and cut the hay;
You see, the island has no strangers,
everybody is your friend,
The little island of Newfoundland,
I'd love to see again.

Where the people make a living
on the land and on the sea,
There are people on that island
that mean the world to me;
I wish I had the power
to change the path of time,
And live again in Newfoundland,
my home of childhood time.
To live again in Newfoundland,
my home of childhood time.
