Take Me Home, Torbay Village (Cyril M Eustace)

When I left my Torbay home,
I was young and bound to roam,
Not knowing what was there for me to find;
Then I headed to the West,
Where they said it was the best,
'Twas never ever greener than
the grass I left behind.

I used to hear men say,
Go west, young man, 'twill pay,
'Twas not a bit at all like my own home;
I was in my youth and prime,
But now I've changed my mind,
Take me home to Torbay village, take me home.

I had worked long and hard,
Thought about my own backyard,
Where we as young boys played
and romped quite some;
Though my life was good I say,
I would rather my Torbay,
Take me home to Torbay village, take me home.

I've spent some years away,
Now I'm heading for Torbay,
No more to stray, or never more to roam;
I've spent some years away,
Now I'm heading for Torbay,
Take me home to Torbay village, take me home.

I see you've changed somewhat,
As I stand here on this spot,
And really happy I am here but not alone;
Once more I get the chance,
To see my first romance,
You took me home, Torbay, you took me home.

####.... Cyril M Eustace [1927-2006] of Torbay, NL ....####
