No one knows a heartache
like a man torn from his home,
Lonesome and unhearted
in a foreign land alone;
With all he owns in his pocket,
nothing left at all,
He knows he's in it for the long haul.

How does one get started
when you've left your heart at home?
How can you settle down,
bound away from home?
Dreaming of a better day,
and you answer the call,
Things will get better in the long haul.

No more leavin', no more grieving,
Lets pull together,
    together one and all;
No more leavin', no more grieving,
Lets pull together for the long haul
.

Who knows where we're going,
who knows if we'll fall,
Keep yourself together when
your back's against the wall;
Who cares about the future,
we'll stand proud and tall,
You know we're in it for the long haul.

No more leavin', no more grieving,
Lets pull together,
together one and all;
No more leavin', no more grieving,
Lets pull together for the long haul
.

No more leavin', no more grieving,
Lets pull together,
together one and all;
No more leavin', no more grieving,
Lets pull together for the long haul
.

Most pictures used in the video above are from the Resettlement Collection, Maritime History Archive, Memorial University, St John's, NL. They depict a period between the mid-1950s and the early 1970s when the Newfoundland government closed 250 outports. Thirty thousand people were uprooted and relocated to larger villages and towns. The head of each household was given $1000 to help with the move and the cost of relocation. Each resident was given $200. Additional money was also provided for travel, fishing gear and lost livestock. The Resettlement Act of 1965 clearly stated that no person could return to an "evacuated" outport and occupy property or construct new buildings there without permission.
