Newfoundland (Rideout And Shaw)

St John's where the big ships go,
Port aux Basques on the Caribou,
Atlantic breeze that I long for,
Take me back on this ship I board,
Take me back to Newfoundland shores.

Twillingate and iceberg floes,
Lewisporte by sea or road,
It's the life on the Rock that I long for,
Take me back on this ship I board,
Take me back to Newfoundland shores.

Dories tied, fish and brewis,
Lobster pie and Shoo Fly Shoo,
Through a River Of Ponds and Seldom Seen,
On the gulfs of shoal to a windblown sea,
Take any point from a time before,
Take me back on this ship I board,
Take me back to Newfoundland shores.

Dories tied, fish and brewis,
Lobster pie and Shoo Fly Shoo,
Deep, dark, misty lakes,
Dancing skies, the Northern Lights,
By the biggest ship I see, I see I know,
The more the salty wind, Atlantic lore,
Take me back on this ship I board,
Take me back to Newfoundland shores.

Take me back, sail me on to my home,
Take me back, sail me on to my home,
Take me back, sail me on to my home,
Take me back, sail me on to my home,
Take me back, sail me on to my home,
Take me back....
