Labrador is the place we adore

Lady Margaret, sitting in her own lone home (Seeger)

Lady Margaret was sitting in her own lone home (Leach)

Lady Margaret was sitting in her own lone home (Peacock)

Land of the silver birch, home of the beaver

Last Friday in Joe Batt's Arm, a raffle did take place

Last Monday morning, 'bout quarter to eight

Last Monday morning, message on my answering service

Last night as I lay dreaming of pleasant days gone by (Ryan's Fancy)

Last night as I lay dreaming of pleasant days gone by (Robbie Martin)

Last night as I sat in my own cozy corner

Last night I dreamed I took a trip up in the deep blue sky

Last night I dreamed of you under an autumn sky

Last night I had the strangest dream

Last night I had the strangest dream I'll remember for a while

Last night I was at a noble gay wedding

Last night I was talking to Mother, she told me she was doing quite well

Last night I went to sleep and I went back home on the farm

Last night when the world was still, we walked down Memory Lane

Last Saturday night, I was invited by an old-time friend of mine

Last Sunday night at twelve o'clock as I lay in my bed

Last Sunday night at 12 o'clock, three city sports put on their coats

Last Tuesday evening at the theatre hall

Last Wednesday morn at one o'clock, for the East End Store I chanced to stroll

Last week I went down to Fogo, invited by friends to the Bay

Late at night I hear the wolves howl, honey

Lay aloft, you hearty sailors

Lay down your sweet and weary head

Lay where you're laying, don't make a sound

Lead, kindly Light, amid th' encircling gloom, lead Thou me on

Leave the land behind, laddie, better days to find

Leaves are falling and turning in showers of gold

Leavin' the island out in the Atlantic

Leif Ericson, Leif Ericson, keep plowin' through the swell

Lend an ear, me b'ys, and if you're wise

Let me go, let me go to the far distant west

Let me go to my home in the far distant west

Let me relate to one and all

Let me sing you a song of our Newfoundland breed

Let me take you by the hand

Let me tell the story, I can tell it all

Let me tell you of a story that will give you a shock

Let others sing of Southern climes, of vine-clad hills and rosy bowers

Let sunny India her wealth proclaim, her gorgeous glowing sky

Let the mummers in, Ma, let the mummers in

Let the sun shine, let it rain

Let us pause in life's pleasures and count its many tears (Ennis Sisters)

Let us pause in life's pleasures and count its many tears (Judy Brazil)

Let your quacks and newspapers be cuttin' their capers

Let's go on the town tonight and grab a couple beers

Let's have an old fashioned Christmas this year in our home-town

Li da di da di la la la la Li da di da di la la la la

Life is such a mystery, this world's a funny place

Life on planet Earth is teeterin' on the brink

Life saver! Wave stemmer!

Life turns on a dime, fate comes calling

Lift, Mac Cahir Oge your face

Light the fire

Like a bird that's lost his mate in flight

Like a fixture down on Main Street, she stood there all year long

Like his daddy before him, his daddy before

Like to go a-moose hunting, hunting in the fall

Lindsay was my first love, she was in my class

Listen and give air to a true Irish bard

Listen awhile, my countrymen, and hear my latest news

Listen to the waves wash in the night

Listen up, me jolly boys, and hear the latest news

Little Rose, be not sad for all that hath behapped thee

Little schoolhouse in the pictures kinda faded now with age

Little sister don't you cry

Little Town Of Bethlehem ushered out the Christmas Eve

Lived in a place called Okfuskee

Liverpool, England, is a place I love dear

Lobster, haddock, pollack, cod, the seasons come and go

Lonely I strolled by the banks of a river

Lonesome, nobody knows me

Long ago they would have danced with spirits free

Long before the white man came to haul the shining cod

Long before we reach the secret shore

Long, long ago as our history shows

Long, long may the hero who caused it enjoy

Long night, this is what it all comes to

Look a-yonder comin', comin' down that railroad track

Look at me, looking back at you without a word to say

Look, see there, movement. Everywhere improvement

Looking out across the deep blue sea

Lord Bateman was a noble lord (Leach)

Lord Bateman was a noble lord (Peacock)

Lord, have mercy on my soul

Lord, I have travelled and oh, I have roamed

Lord Thomas he was a bold forester

Lot of happy faces when friday comes around

Louis was the king of France

Love is the traitor of a sailor's life

Love, la la la la la love

Love me now while we're alive

Love, your boat's lost at sea

Lovers, I pray, lend an ear to my story

Lukey's boat is painted green, aha, my boys (Doyle)

Lukey's boat is painted green, aha, me boys (Morgan/Best)
