Carry Me Home (Some Guy & A Newfie)

Carry me home you westward bound trade wind,
Carry me home you westward bound trade wind,
Carry me home to my woman far over the sea.

It's been thirty days since I saw land behind me,
I'm cold and I'm wet and I need to find me
A piece of dry land and my woman far over the sea.

I've been tossed all about and my bow it is broken,
The wind's in my sails, now I'm just a-smokin'
Across this blue yonder to my woman far over the sea.

Carry me home you westward bound trade wind,
Carry me home you westward bound trade wind,
Carry me home to my woman far over the sea.

With the time on my side and my eye on the weather,
I can see the blue sky just to the east'ard,
The warm northeast wind will blow me far over the sea.

In about twenty days I'll be in St John's,
And people will dance and break into new songs,
And I will be joined with my woman far over the sea.

Carry me home you westward bound trade wind,
Carry me home you westward bound trade wind,
Carry me home to my woman far over the sea.

Carry me home you westward bound trade wind,
Carry me home you westward bound trade wind,
Carry me home to my woman far over the sea.

Carry me home you westward bound trade wind,
Carry me home you westward bound trade wind,
Carry me home to my woman far over the sea.
