THIS NEW FOUNDE LANDE (3:10)
1497-1997 - This song celebrates Newfoundland's and Labrador's 500th anniversary of discovery by John Cabot and his
crew aboard the MATTHEW. "And it's ours to discover now this NEW FOUNDE LANDE!"
A somewhat lazy good-for-nothing young feller named Johnny O'Rourke overcomes his idleness when he marries. Guy sings
just a delightful Newfoundland story with all the trimmings!

Guy Romaine loves his mandolin. Here's a little jig you know... or do you?

CHORUS:"The family of man keeps growing/The family of man keeps sowing/ the seeds of a new life every day.
LONG WINTER NIGHTS (3:42)
When the days get shorter and nights get colder, as long as there's a fire in the woodstove and a fiddler ready to play, there's
going to be a warm and wondeful time about to happen. Here's a chorus to really belt out!
MY COVE (3:36)
There are hundred's of coves in Newfoundland many of us grew up in and still call home. Whether resettled or still vibrant, this
cove will always be "My Cove" (written for Newman's Cove, Guy's home in Bonavista Bay).
CAPLIN RUN (1:45)
Do you remember when the caplin rolled up "by the t'ousands sure!"? Guy and Mike team up for an Irish tune that's been rollin'
round Mike's head for years as he envisions once again the caplin rolling and the kids and fisherfolk gathering them by the
ALL GOD'S CREATURES (2:55)
It's our adaption of an old song about all those animals that sing God's praises in their own special way!
LOST DORYMATES (4:12)
An intriguing ballad of two friends lost in a dory off The Grand Banks during the days of the Schooners. Folklore at it's finest.
I'SE THE B'Y (1:25)
Whether you're a hardfast Newfoundlander or a wonderful visitor to our island, here's a traditional song that you just won't
