Yellow balloons and bright yellow ribbons,
Are tied to the fences in a Newfoundland town;
A brave young soldier has just returned home,
From fightin' the war in a place he's not known.

There are signs of I Love You
and Welcome Back Home,
Or for Randy, we've missed you
ever since you've been gone;
But you've done us proud
as we know there's no doubt,
If you were in trouble
our prayers brought you out.

There's a big celebration
at the Spaniard's Bay Legion,
And the Veterans all gathered
to welcome him home;
They know what he's been through,
they've been there before,
Fightin' for freedom on some foreign shore.

Ofttimes we wonder just how safe we are,
Patrolling the streets of old Kandahar;
But we must show support whenever we can,
May God keep them safe from the old Taliban.

'Cause he's just a young soldier
from old Newfoundland,
Fightin' the war in Afghanistan;
But now he's back safely
with family and friends,
And in his young heart he's wonderin'
when he'll go back again.

He walks to the mike with tears in his eyes,
Speaks of his friends
who had just lost their lives;
But he's safely back home
where he's been from the start,
In a brightly lit corner
of his Mom and Dad's heart.

So, when you hear this song,
be proud of our own,
Thank our young soldiers
for the courage they've shown;
They stand true and tall,
and they answer the call,
When it be needed they'll fight for us all.

'Cause he's just a young soldier
from old Newfoundland,
Fightin' the war in Afghanistan;
But now he's back safely
with family and friends,
And in his young heart he's wonderin'
when he'll go back again.
As a soldier he's ready to go back again.
