Island In The Sea (Uncle Harry's Bar Band) video

The winding roads and forests,
the rivers and the sand,
Are all part of the beauty
you'll find in Newfoundland;
The crying of the seagull,
and the roaring of the sea,
It bids a fair fond welcome
in perfect harmony.

There are no factories or skyscrapers
to mar our native land,
For fishing is the industry
on which most of us depend;
Fishing boats fill the harbour,
and the horses still run free,
There's such a world of beauty
for everyone to see.

So for those of you who have to roam
away from your native soil,
Just bear in mind from where you came
to Newfoundland and all;
Remember that a Newfie
you're always bound to be,
So always be proud to represent
your island in the sea.
