I was born and raised in
Corner Brook many years ago,
And I often think of my hometown
and I still love her so;
My Mom and Dad raised nine of us,
a chore for them, I know,
There was lots of love
and they raised us well;
Things won't change as time goes.

And I remember my first girlfriend,
her name, it was Eileen,
I never knew a boy so young
could have fantastic dreams;
And I remember ridin' horses
'round Corner Brook at night,
Playin' cowboys on the firebreak
and having the odd fight.

My Corner Brook where I was born,
I never will forget,
Its paper mill and swimming hole
are things you don't forget;
Well, thank you, Lord,
for letting me be her local son,
And let me rest in Corner Brook
when my time is done.

Well, the good times that we had in school,
Mother Paula was our boss,
And all the nuns were good as gold,
just a few of them were cross;
We'd buy our smokes at Peter Meade's
and our coke at Cooper's Place,
A haircut down at old Don Hall's,
it was a good ol' story place.

And the pool room down on Broadway
where it's Grillin' Johnson's too,
I remember them like yesterday
and I bet that you do too;
So many things come back to me,
I wish I could tell the rest,
God bless and keep you, Corner Brook,
I'm sure you passed the test.

My corner brook where I was born,
I never will forget,
Its paper mill and swimming hole
are things you don't forget;
Well, thank you, Lord,
for letting me be her local son,
And let me rest in Corner Brook
when my time is done.
And let me rest in Corner Brook
when my time is done.
