One special day to show your appreciation throughout the year
For all our lovely mudders that we hold dear
We can't imagine or ever know what they have given up for us
They put us before themselves without a fuss
They're charming

To all my family in Newfoundland
You knows I loves ye all firsthand
My parents, nieces, cousins, uncles and aunts
I can't love ye anymore than I do, nor more I can't
I misses ye all and I wish I could see

Yes I'm a Country Girl at heart
It was embedded in me right from the start
My parents played country music all the time
I didn't appreciate it back then in my prime
But I love it now more than I can

For a Moment in Time
Generations sit at calm waters edge
Children race around a rocky coastline
Life is simple for a moment in time

There are no busy streets found here
No strangers passing without a word
Life is simple for a moment in time

Families gather together in peace
Helping hands heal each other in times of need
Strangers are family after a moments conversation

Life is simple for a moment in time
Where people become lifelong friends
An island bond by loving family ties

This is our home, our comfort
A place of refuge in a busy world
Where life is simple for a moment in time

That Newfie had my head spinning round
Soon l will live out Burgoynes Cove way

The Good Old Days
Years ago the houses were built with pride
and many people lived inside.
There were mom and pop and nanny and grampy,
and everybody was very happy.

They had no TVs or phone,
But there was a wood stove burning in every home,
no turning on a switch to get your light,
But a lamp was lit every night.

There were no street lights in their
