lyrics

I’ve been 14 years removed and now I’m finally going home
Back to friends and family and a land of times long gone
The birthplace and the hub where the boy becomes a man
Walking down those cobbled streets together hand and hand
The salt upon our lips as the sun begins to rise
This city’s seen its share of pain but we’ll get through now bye’s

Through hard work and dedication you know we will show them all
That there’s more to this bluenoser than a pad and pen can scrawl
From the narrows to the straights we will gather one and all
A united voice among us so you all must heed our call

Through the Cape’s highlands, where this old salt will roam
To the rocky banks of L’Arechete where the fishermen call home
The midnight wind is calling whistling its shrill tune to the moon
Blessings on gods country and the ships upon its dunes
A storm moves through wave’s crash up against the banks
With nets filled full of fish for which the fisherman give thanks

Through hard work and dedication you know we will show them all
That there’s more to this bluenoser than a pad and pen can scrawl
From the narrows to the straights we will gather one and all
A united voice among us so you all must heed our call

We're going home, I said we're finally going home
We're going home, I said we're finally going home
We're going home, I said we're finally going home
We're going home, I said I'm finally going home

Through hard work and dedication you know we will show em’ all
That there’s more to this bluenoser than a pad and pen can scrawl
We’ve been knocked down, pushed around still our heads held high
For I’ll be a Maritimer until the day I die!
