Oh Jenny, take me home,
I promise you I'll no more roam,
Oh Jenny, take me home tonight;
I travelled east, north, west and south,
This Newfie heart's all gypsied out,
Oh Jenny, take me home tonight.

This knapsack that I'm carrying
is the only thing I own,
I'd like to plant my feet upon our shore;
I'm all done this travelling, no more will I roam,
Oh Jenny, won't you take me home?

Oh Jenny, take me home,
I promise you I'll no more roam,
Oh Jenny, take me home tonight;
I travelled east, north, west and south,
This Newfie heart's all gypsied out,
Oh Jenny, take me home tonight.

Remember back when we were young
and we were still in school,
Used to dream of places we would go;
But after years of drifting, baby,
I have grown tired,
Oh Jenny, won't you take me home?

Oh, Jenny, take me home,
I promise you I'll no more roam,
Oh, Jenny, take me home tonight;
I travelled east, north, west and south,
This Newfie heart's all gypsied out,
Oh, Jenny, take me home tonight.

We'll build a silver cabin
somewhere way back in the woods,
Where we can go out fishing in the rain;
And evenings we can take the boat
and paddle around the pond,
Oh Jenny, we've been gone too long.

Oh Jenny, take me home,
I promise you I'll no more roam,
Oh Jenny, take me home tonight;
I travelled east, north, west and south,
This Newfie heart's all gypsied out,
Oh Jenny, take me home tonight.

Oh Jenny, take me home,
I promise you I'll no more roam,
Oh Jenny, take me home tonight;
I travelled east, north, west and south,
This Newfie heart's all gypsied out,
Oh Jenny, take me home tonight.

Bob Porter posted to facebook Jan 18, 2016:
"I've had so many people ask me "who is Jenny?"
So, I'm going to explain who Jenny is.
Over the many years I've been away
from Bear Cove, NL, I've just wanted to give up
everything I was doing and just go home.
And it still happens. So when I wrote the song
"Oh Jenny", there actually was no Jenny,
but somehow the name came out of me,
and I thought, mmm, ok, that works.
So, that's all there is to the title Oh Jenny."
