Newfoundland’s Like Ireland To Me

A ship is waiting at the pier
prepared to cross the foam
with saddened heart I go aboard
some foreign land to roam
I bid farewell to Family and Friends
I may never see nomore
for I’ll ride this noble sailing ship
to some far off distant shore

My thoughts are of o’l Ireland
and of those days gone by
her moorlands and her meadows
where I played when just a boy
her mountain streams and rivers
I will never see nomore
for I’m riding this fair sailing ship
to some far off distant shore

We sailed in through the narrows
in St. John’s Newfoundland
I thought my eyes deceied me
It felt like home again
The people were so friendly
and each one shook my hand
no longer my heart is saddened
I’m at home in Newfoundland
