Well, some day I'll return to Newfoundland,
I'll watch those little boats go out to sea;
When I return that's where
I'll make my stand, Lord,
And Newfoundland is where they'll bury me.

Twenty years is a long time
away from home, Lord,
The place I never thought I'd leave;
But a man needs a job to earn a living,
Though I still regret the day I moved away.

But some day I'll return to Newfoundland,
I'll watch those little boats go out to sea;
When I return that's where
I'll make my stand, Lord,
And Newfoundland is where they'll bury me.

I remember Momma cooking in the kitchen,
Smell of home made bread
there's nothing can compare;
And Daddy working hard at what he could, Lord,
And when times were tough how everybody shared.

Oh, some day I'll return again to Newfoundland,
I'll watch those little boats go out to sea;
When I return that's where
I'll make my stand, Lord,
And Newfoundland is where they'll bury me.

You know folks say
when you die you go to heaven,
A place beyond the stars they say;
Well, I believe that there really is a heaven,
Though it's got to be that island in the sea.

Yeah, some day I'll return to Newfoundland,
I'll watch those little boats go out to sea;
When I return that's where
I'll make my stand, Lord,
And Newfoundland is where they'll bury me.
Yes, Newfoundland is where they'll bury me.
