Woman of Labrador

Composed by Andy Vine
Performed Allison Crowe

Woman of Labrador
children 'round your cabin door
wondering when their daddy will be home.
He's gone on the trapping lines
seems like such a long long time
since he waved his last farewell
and let you alone.

Woman of Labrador
turn your mind to daily chores
hunting and catching fish
to feed your family.
At night when they're all in bed
you go outside and raise your head
watch the Northern Lights go dancing
high over the sea.

Daughter of Labrador
those days are here no more
You wonder if your baby will ever understand
the hardship that you endured
when everyone you knew was poor
sharing everything you had
and living off the land.

Woman of Labrador
children 'round your cabin door
wondering when their daddy will be home.
He's gone on the trapping lines
seems like such a long long time
since he waved his last farewell
and let you alone.
