In your garden the roses were fading,
The night I broke your heart;
I had to leave for Alberta,
And it tore my whole world apart.

No work could I find on the Island,
I had no choice but to go;
But the hardest part in leaving,
Was leaving the one I love so.

The miles that come between us,
But I'll love you till I die;
Hold onto the love you have for me,
Under our Newfoundland sky.

Not a minute goes by I don't miss you,
I see your face everywhere;
That sweet-smelling scent of your perfume,
The touch of your long, golden hair.

At night when I'm feeling lonely,
My heart is as heavy as stone;
I think of our time together,
Back in our Newfoundland home.

The miles that come between us,
But I'll love you till I die;
Hold on to the love you have for me,
Under our Newfoundland sky.

Long winter will soon be over,
I'll buy a freight for spring;
I will return to you, love,
On your finger I'll place this ring.

Please, my darling, don't worry,
For this will all be soon;
Together we'll stand in your garden,
And watch as your roses bloom.

The miles that come between us,
But I'll love you till I die;
Hold on to the love you have for me,
Under our Newfoundland sky.
Hold on to the love you have for me,
Under our Newfoundland sky.
