Gushue Gold (Siochána)

I'm a Newfoundlander born and bred,
And I'll be one till I die.
The Gushue Rink brought home the gold,
And that's the reason why,
They had to beat Team Finland,
They had such great command.
Now we're so proud that we can say
That they're from Newfoundland.

Brad started down this road to gold,
In Moncton that's the place;
He held his head high even though,
He did not reach first place.
One thing that he did not know,
Russ Howard would begin,
To help to raise his spirits up,
To be on top again.

Mark Nichols is from Labrador.
Mike Adam is from there, too.
They're life long friends who love to curl
On the team we call Gushue.
Jamie Korab is the lead,
He hails from Harbour Grace,
He loves to play this golden game,
It's tattooed on his face.

Mike Adam has the biggest heart
That you have ever seen;
He stepped aside to let Russ play
To realize their dream.
Toby is the master,
With harmonica in hand;
He coached his team to beat them all,
On top is where they stand.

When Brad and crew went to the trials,
Some said they had no chance;
If Canada's to win a gold,
Another should advance.
Brad played them all, he would not fall.
Russ Howard took command.
Now Canada has set its sights
On the boys from Newfoundland.

The final game against Markku,
Brad's heart began to race;
Six yellow stones sat in the house,
One more he tried to place.
As he threw his final stone,
His heart beat through his chest;
He knew that he had won the gold,
We now call them the best.

When Finland said that they concede,
Brad gathered with his team;
They hugged each other on the ice,
They're eyes began to gleam.
Brad stood a spell, he grabbed a cell,
One voice he'd hear alone;
Looking to a camera, said,
"Mom pick up the phone."

I'm a Newfoundlander born and bred,
And I'll be one till I die.
The Gushue Rink brought home the gold,
And that's the reason why,
They had to beat Team Finland,
They had such great command.
Now we're so proud that we can say
That they're from Newfoundland.
Now we're so proud that we can say
That they're from Newfoundland.
