Dear Mom, I guess it's surprisin',
That I finally took time to write;
But a country dance sang of old Newfoundland,
Down in the tavern last night.

And a bunch of the boys got to talkin',
'Bout how often we don't keep in touch;
And we want you to know that we love you,
And the land that we're missin' so much.

And we'll all be home someday,
We're all coming back home once again;
We'll all be home again someday,
For we're still the sons of old Newfoundland.

You know that we just had to leave there,
Our fame and our fortune to win;
But someday we'll walk by the seashore,
And never go wandering again.

[Spoken]
So Mom, won't you please pass around this letter,
So the rest of the folks will understand;
We're doing just fine, but we're just markin' time,
Till we're back home once again in old Newfoundland.

And we'll all be home again someday,
We're all coming back home again;
We'll all be back home again someday,
For we're still the sons of old Newfoundland.
Yes, we're still the sons of old Newfoundland.
