Lyrics

The Heart Is In Cape Breton
(STEVE DAFOE 2017) (COPYRIGHTED)


CHORUS 1:

Oh, It's my Cape Breton home____
Where Gaelic Ghosts dance all nite
And no Matter where I roam
It's always be my birthright___
It's just my Cape Breton Home
Oh, my Cape Breton home............
Cause no matter where I go
It's Just home sweet home

CHORUS 2:

Oh, It's my Cape Breton home____
Where music and the sea are folklore
Where the Atlantic laps the shore
And no matter where I roam
It's always my Cape Breton Home
Oh, my Cape Breton home............
Cause no matter where I go
It's Just home sweet home

Verse 1:

The mountains rise so majestically
A beacon for fishermen of the sea
Through the silence you can hear a Violin
In Mabou from some quaint local inn
Where kin gather at McQuinn's local inn

Verse 2:

Driving Kelly's mountain through the fog
Brad'Or Lakes and around Kane's Bog
Feel and see the breaking Ocean Spray
Paint a pallet over the Canso Causeway
From Nova Scotia the only gateway


Verse 3:

Driving around the great Cabot Trail
Look to the sea to watch a humpback whale
See the beauty of the Margaree Valley
Stop and stare and share an afternoon tea
The colors of fall are like a rainbow to see
