Chorus:

        

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.

      G           Bm      C           G

She's bordered by inlets, tickles and sounds

Em         C            D

Reaches by coves and by bays

    Em           D              C              G

She soothes your vision and you sail round her shores

                  D                  G

With a mixture of greens, browns and grays.

        D                              C

And the houses lie scattered among the rocks in the cove

             Em             D          C

Trimmed with orange, green, yellow and blue

   G            D        C 

In twillingate, Fogo and Little Hearts' Ease

G              D      G

Fortune, Trout River, Fermeuse.

Chorus:

        G     D           G

She's a rocky isle in the ocean

          C          G             D    

And she's pounded by wind from the sea

G         Em               C          G

You might think that she's rugged and cold

               D             G

But she's home sweet home to me.

G                 Bm            C       G

Been tortured for centuries her stories untold

Em                 C        D

She struggled with fortunes unknown

     Em          D                C                  G

Laid bare by the glaciers as they scr*ped her to the bone

                    D          G

Taking soil to make Grand Bank shoals.

D                                   C           G

She's been battered for eons by the cold biting winds

        Em            D          C

Chewing rocks to soft beaches of sand

G               D        C

And carving her face and giving us a place

        G        D          G 

That we now call Newfoundland.

Chorus:

        G     D           G

She's a rocky isle in the ocean

          C          G             D    

And she's pounded by wind from the sea

G         Em               C          G

You might think that she's rugged and cold

               D             G

But she's home sweet home to me.

G                Bm         C            G

The ocean surrounds her, it gives and it takes

     Em        C        D

Like shepherd, lion and lamb

    Em           D             C        G

The pounding and grinding is a constant reminding

                   D          G

Of the forces that follow the town

         D                       C

       Em              D        C

To the quiet of a warm summer's day

    G            D           C             

All hardships forgotten, old debts are repaid

                D              G

With a day on a quiet peaceful bay.

Chorus:

        G     D           G

She's a rocky isle in the ocean

          C          G             D    

And she's pounded by wind from the sea

G         Em               C          G

You might think that she's rugged and cold

               D             G

But she's home sweet home to me.

        G     D           G

She's a rocky isle in the ocean

          C          G             D    

And she's pounded by wind from the sea

G         Em               C          G

You might think that she's rugged and cold

               D             G

But she's home sweet home to me.

                       D       G

Boy's she's home sweet home to me.
