In the first warmth of springtime
when the soft winds blow,
And there's ice in the harbour that's when I will go;
I won't miss the smell of melting snow,
I'll be bound for a new life out west.

Out west, out west,
I'll be bound for a new life out west.

In the soft mist of summer when the caplin roll,
And the lilacs are blooming I'll be far from home;
I won't miss the beach fires or sunset's glow,
I'll be starting a new life out west.

Out west, out west,
I'll be starting a new life out west.

When the hillsides are golden and richest red,
And the berries have ripened I'll be way out west;
I won't shed a tear for the love I left,
I will find me another out west.

Out west, out west,
I will find me another out west.
Out west, out west,
I will seek me another out west.

From the Dictionary of Newfoundland English:
Caplin - small, iridescent deep-water fish (Mallotus villosus) like a smelt which, followed by the cod, appears inshore during June and July to spawn along the beaches, and is netted for bait, for manuring the fields, or dried, salted, smoked or frozen for eating.
