The Rugged Shores Of Newfoundland (Siochána)

The rugged shores of Newfoundland
have seen hard work, toil by hand.
The changing tide has seen the past.
Our soil we've plowed. Our nets we've cast,
And year by year we've braved the raging sea.

Those waves have lashed the shore
a hundred thousand times before.
The wind calls to my heart and to my soul.
We've found our destiny on this island in the sea,
As our fathers did five hundred years ago, years ago.

We've riches great, proud heritage
from Birchy Bay to Hermitage.
To our children we will pass it all.
Our blood has come from distant lands.
The future now is in our hands.
Like our fathers, stand up straight and tall.

Those waves have lashed the shore
a hundred thousand times before.
The wind calls to my heart and to my soul.
We've found our destiny on this island in the sea,
As our fathers did five hundred years ago, years ago.

Hardship and adversity we've known before, you will agree.
We've made an occupation of hard times.
These storms that cloud our lives today:
The codfish gone, the seals astray,
We'll overcome with strength of heart and mind.

The rugged shores of Newfoundland
have seen hard work, toil by hand.
A people strong, brave, and free.
The changing tide has seen the past.
Our soil we've plowed. Our nets we've cast,
And year by year we've braved the raging sea.

Those waves have lashed the shore
a hundred thousand times before.
The wind calls to my heart and to my soul.
We've found our destiny on this island in the sea,
As our fathers did five hundred years ago, years ago.

Years ago........years ago.........years ago.....
