Vinland Lyr Req: Woman of Labrador (Andy Vine) (14) RE: Woman Of Labrador 07 Dec 02


A piano/vocal/guitar arrangement of Woman of Labrador can be found in the folk song anthology Sing Around This One (Vinland Music 1997) here

In a note on the song Andy wrote:

"I was working in St. John's and I rented a room in an old section of the downtown. The house had a fireplace, so I bought some coal and settled in to read a book - Woman of Labrador by Elizabeth Goudie. I felt the spirit of the land and the people come into me, and the song just came out. At first I was shy about singing it. The song is so simple I was afraid I would be laughed at. But it has become my most popular song. Some songs just cannot not be written!"
