Oooh, oh, Labrador's home!
Oooh, oh, Labrador's home!

How well I remember
my first northern November,
Back in nineteen sixty-four
when I first found the iron ore,
Up in Labrador City;
You were a young twenty-two,
and I was in love with you,
I had never been away from home,
now I was promising to phone,
And write you love letters.

Working at an iron ore mine in Labrador City,
The work is hard and lonely
'cause you're not around;
Dreaming and loving you in my mind,
Your picture's on my bunkhouse door;
And I work a lot of double shifts,
trying to forget you in iron ore.

Oooh, oh, Labrador's home!
Oooh, oh, Labrador's home!

Checkin' the mail,
it's a big part of my day,
Just lookin' for a line,
saying you love me and you're mine,
And you're there waiting for me;
But this will never do,
I'm just too much in love with you,
Got to have you by my side,
steady be hay and take a ride,
I'm here waiting for you.

'Cause we can have
a brand new life in Labrador City,
We can have our kids and
I'll finally settle me down;
The Northern Lights are the best I've known,
I've finally found my home;
And I'll be working no more double shifts
with you by my side.

Working at an iron ore mine in Labrador City,
The work is hard and lonely
'cause you're not around;
Dreaming and loving you in my mind,
you're finally coming home,
Yes, home, my Wabush Labrador home.

Oooh, oh, Labrador's home!
Oooh, oh, Labrador's home!

Everybody now! Help us out!

Oooh, oh, Labrador's home!

One more time!

Oooh, oh, Labrador's home!
