Shores Of Newfoundland (Barry Davis)

Spend my life sailing
on a sea that has no shame,
Waiting for the time
when I can come home again;
Braving all the hardships
ever known to man,
But tonight I know I'm gonna see
the shores of Newfoundland.

Shores many long for
since they left their home,
Shores they grew up on,
shores to call their own;
Shores that is the landmark
for every fisherman,
There's nothing with more history
than the shores of Newfoundland.

Cabot made his way across
in fourteen ninety-seven,
To carry back the news
he had found a fisher's heaven;
Many times they heard him say
he was guided by God's hand,
The greatest sight he ever saw -
the shores of Newfoundland.

Shores many long for
since they left their home,
Shores they grew up on,
shores to call their own;
Shores that is the landmark
for every fisherman,
There's nothing with more history
than the shores of Newfoundland.

Settlers have come here
to make Newfoundland their home,
Build their houses in the coves
and never more to roam;
Fish the seas and cut the trees
and cultivate the land,
Know that they are safe from harm
on the shores of Newfoundland.

Shores many long for
since they left their home,
Shores they grew up on,
shores to call their own;
Shores that is the landmark
for every fisherman,
There's nothing with more history
than the shores of Newfoundland.
Nothing with more history
than the shores of Newfoundland.
