My Heart's In Newfoundland (Clayt Butt) video

We left our home in Newfoundland,
passed through Cape Breton's shore,
Planning to start over and begin life once more;
Building for a future and working on this land,
Now we're living here in Cambridge,
while my heart's in Newfoundland.

Now there's memories of my childhood days,
where I ran, played and cried,
Memories of my parents who long since have died;
Memories of my friends and
family you don't understand,
Why we're living here in Cambridge,
but my heart's in Newfoundland.

Oh, I miss one special person
with whom I shared my life,
The girl I loved and married
who will always be my wife;
But she grew discontented, just wanted to be free,
She could see no future for her or for me.

So she went back to the island
to start a new life o'er,
I remained here living on my adopted shore;
Where I have found a different life
with friends that understand,
Why I'm living here in Cambridge,
but my heart's in Newfoundland.

Yes, I'm living here in Cambridge,
but my heart's in Newfoundland.

Yes, I'm living here in Cambridge,
but my heart's in Newfoundland.
