They sing songs of London, Kentucky and Spain,
Of beautiful places, Nova Scotia on Main;
Now I'll sing a song, friends, 'bout a place I adore,
As I go back in memory of you, Labrador.

Where the brave hunters roam on land and on sea,
Where the bright northern lights shine
that's where I want to be;
There's a beautiful maiden I'm longing to see,
In a snow covered valley she's waiting for me.

Where towering mountains reach high in the sky,
And your beautiful valleys I'll love till I die;
Your great lakes and rivers where waterfalls roar,
In the beautiful north land we call Labrador.

Now, I know some people for cities did roam,
But just for a short time and they were back home;
Well, I guess they got lonesome and longed once more,
For their home in the north land we call Labrador.

Where towering mountains reach high in the sky,
And your beautiful valleys I'll love till I die;
Your great lakes and rivers where waterfalls roar,
In the beautiful north land we call Labrador.

Where towering mountains reach high in the sky,
And your beautiful valleys I'll love till I die;
Your great lakes and rivers where waterfalls roar,
In the beautiful north land we call Labrador.

I treasure fond memories of you, Labrador.
