It's So Old But Ever New In Newfoundland
(Dick Nolan)

Well, it's so old but ever new, Newfoundland,
Gentle women, happy children, brawny men;
Laughter, work and danger is all we understand,
It's so old but ever new, Newfoundland.

In the grey Atlantic water sits old Newfoundland
Like a great ship on the ocean
with the good Lord in command;
We're leaving now, we're pulling out,
no more can we delay,
We're headed for the port of success,
and now we're on our way.
It's so old but ever new, Newfoundland.

And see the west coast mountains
with their pretty coat of green,
See the pretty water,
it becomes an angler's dream;
Far away in the wilderness
a hunter's dream come true,
As he tracks down the mighty moose,
the bear, the caribou.
It's so old but ever new, Newfoundland.

And see the little fishing boats
and the happy fishermen,
Making their living in the
freedom of an Atlantic wind;
Alone on that great ocean
with a seagull up above,
He's just asking for a dollar
for the family that he loves.
It's so old but ever new, Newfoundland.

Gentle women, happy children, brawny men,
Laughter, work and danger is all we understand;
It's so old but ever new, Newfoundland,
Yes, it's so old but ever new, Newfoundland.
