Song For Newfoundland  Buddy Wasisname and The Other Fellers



She's a rocky isle in the ocean
And she's pounded by wind from the sea
You might think that she's rugged and cold
But she's home sweet home to me.

She's [G]bordered by [Bm]inlets, [C]tickles and [G]sounds
[Em]Reaches by [C]coves and by [D]bays
She [Em]soothes your [D]vision and you [C]sail round her [G]shores
With a mixture of [D]greens, browns and [G]grays.
And the [D]houses lie scattered among the [C]rocks in the cove
Trimmed with [Em]orange, green, [D]yellow and [C]blue
In [G]twillingate, [D]Fogo and [C]Little Hearts' Ease
[G]Fortune, Trout [D]River, [G]Fermeuse.

Chorus:
She's a [G]rocky [D]isle in the [G]ocean
And she's [C]pounded by [G]wind from the [D]sea
[G]You might [Em]think that she's [C]rugged and [G]cold
But she's home [D]sweet home to [G]me.
[G]Been tortured for [Bm]centuries her [C]stories [G]untold
[Em]She struggled with [C]fortunes [D]unknown
Laid [Em]bare by the [D]glaciers as they [C]scraped her to the [G]bone
Taking soil to make [D]Grand Bank [G]shoals.
[D]She's been battered for eons by the [C]cold biting [G]winds
Chewing [Em]rocks to soft [D]beaches of [C]sand
[G]And carving her [D]face and [C]giving us a place
That we [G]now call [D]Newfoundlan[G]d.


Chorus:
She's a [G]rocky [D]isle in the [G]ocean
And she's [C]pounded by [G]wind from the [D]sea
[G]You might [Em]think that she's [C]rugged and [G]cold
But she's home [D]sweet home to [G]me.


[G]The ocean surroun[Bm]ds her, it [C]gives and it [G]takes
Like [Em]shepherd, [C]lion and [D]lamb
The [Em]pounding and [D]grinding is a [C]constant [G]reminding
Of the forces that [D]follow the [G]town
From the [D]fury of a blizzard on a [C]cold winter's night
To the [Em]quiet of a warm [D]summer's [C]day
All [G]hardships for[D]gotten, old [C]debts are repaid
With a day on a [D]quiet peaceful [G]bay.
Chorus:
She's a [G]rocky [D]isle in the [G]ocean
And she's [C]pounded by [G]wind from the [D]sea
[G]You might [Em]think that she's [C]rugged and [G]cold
But she's home [D]sweet home to [G]me.
She's a [G]rocky [D]isle in the [G]ocean
And she's [C]pounded by [G]wind from the [D]sea
[G]You might [Em]think that she's [C]rugged and [G]cold
But she's home [D]sweet home to [G]me.
Boy's she's home sweet [D]home to [G]me.
