Woman of Labrador

Woman of Labrador
(Andy Vine)

Woman of Labrador
Children round you cabin door
Wondering when their daddy will be home
He's gone on the trapping line
Seems like such a long, long time
Since he waved his last farewell
And left 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
Go outside and raise your head
Watch the northern lights go dancing
Far over the sea

Woman of Labrador
Those days are here no more
Wonder if your baby will ever understand
The hardships that you endured
When everyone you knew was poor
Sharing everything they had
And living off the land

From the collection of Andrew Draskoy
