[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.

[Verse]
      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. 
 

[Verse]
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 scraped 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.

[Verse]
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
From the fury of a blizzard on a cold winter's night
       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.
