Farewell To Newfoundland (Brandon Rideout) video

It's time to say farewell to the boys I know so well,
And the girls that kept me in good company;
I'd stay here on this island
but a broken torment I am,
In the morning bound for mainland I will be.

So tip your glass with me, a rowdy bunch we'll be,
Tonight's our night, the time it is at hand;
I'm sick of being poor,
and there's money of this shore,
But the richest are back home in Newfoundland.

We'll get the crowd from around the bay,
the parting glass we'll play,
Tonight we'll let the kids stay up all night;
I'm sad I must be going but
tonight the whiskey's flowing,
So we'll dance until the morning breaks daylight.

B'ys, you can have my fiddle,
my squeeze box and tin whistle,
It's only here that all of this makes sense;
And those who never liked me
I'll just leave behind to spite me,
I'll leave you that last line and my two cents.

So tip your glass with me, a rowdy bunch we'll be,
Tonight's our night, the time it is at hand;
I'm sick of being poor,
and there's money of this shore,
But the richest are back home in Newfoundland.

So tip your glass with me, a rowdy bunch we'll be,
Tonight's our night, the time it is at hand;
I'm sick of being poor,
and there's money of this shore,
But the richest are back home in Newfoundland.

Yeah, tip your glass with me,
a rowdy bunch we'll be,
Tonight's our night, the time it is at hand;
I'm sick of being poor,
and there's money of this shore,
But the richest are back home in Newfoundland.

B'ys, the richest are back home in Newfoundland.
