Aweigh, aweigh, we're getting under way,
We're gonna cross the ocean pond;
On the Cape Breton side of Newfoundland,
We've been gone way too long.

I can't wait to see my friends,
Especially my family;
I sure hope all the old gang,
Still remembers me.

Something's calling me back to my rocky shore,
I don't think I'll ever roam away anymore;
I'm back in the town where I became a man,
My native home in Newfoundland.

Gotta let my heart take me to my destiny,
Like a guiding light,
it's telling me where I have to be;
Stepped out on the deck and I heard somebody ask,
Guess we'll soon be in dear ole Port aux Basques.

Sailed into the harbour just off Channel Head,
Lighthouse still looks the same as it always did;
Sitting at the dock now I can smell the old salt air,
My island home in Newfoundland
to me you are so dear.

Something's calling me back to my rocky shore,
I don't think I'll roam away anymore;
I'm back in the town where I became a man,
My native home in Newfoundland.

My native home in Newfoundland.


Dear ole Port aux Basques.
