Where the Atlantic meets our coastline on our rugged western shore,
You can always find a welcome to Newfoundland and Labrador;
Where the Beothuck and the Mi'kmaw roamed and the famous Badger Drive
Is sung around the campfire as we keep our dreams alive.

The majestic moose in abundance in the stands of spruce and fir,
Crossing streams and rivers, causing wild ducks to stir;
And the beauty of those valleys where the lakes and ponds do lie,
And the setting of the summer sun as it reddens the evening sky.

So come on here to Newfoundland to see our island home,
And on to mighty Labrador where caribou herds do roam;
Where fishing is a way of life upon the rolling sea,
And amidst the warmth and friendliness there's hospitality.

Where the people warmly greet you, a lesson you will learn,
Though they give you everything they have they take nothing in return;
But they treasure all those memories of yesteryears gone-by,
And they welcome you back here again with that twinkle in their eye.

So come on here to Newfoundland to see our island home,
And on to mighty Labrador where caribou herds do roam;
Where fishing is a way of life upon the rolling sea,
And amidst the warmth and friendliness there's hospitality.
Yes, amidst the warmth and friendliness there's hospitality.
