Portrait Of Newfoundland (Barry Davis)

As my thoughts drift back,
there are times I remember,
The things that I've seen so long, long ago;
The people and places still live in my memory,
They're from my homeland that I love so.

I've seen the calm waters in the morning light gleaming,
As small boats with fishermen head 'cross the bay;
And the sound that they made as they shattered the silence,
Would fade in the distance as they went on their way.

To ride on the dirt road in Uncle Ray's chevy,
Dave at the wheel, guitar in my hand;
And to see the rolled hills as we looked through the window,
A blanket of green covering the land.

To walk on the shoreline of our great ocean,
The roar of its waves and salt-smelling air;
To see all the caverns it's carved o'er the centuries,
Breathtaking scenery that none can compare.

Inland the forests stand tall in their splendor,
The moose and the caribou gallantly stand;
The mountains loom broad off in the distance,
Help paint the portrait of Newfoundland.

As my thoughts drift back there are times I remember,
The things that I've seen so long, long ago;
The people and places still live in my memory,
They're from my homeland that I love so.
