lyrics:

There’s a spot on this earth to me ever dear, For it’s mem-ries of

friends and home—— My thoughts al-ways turn to that town godd

cheer  No matter where ever I roam——–To just stroll up Main and

see once again The King George Hotel where the best I’ll obtain.

Chorus:

Cornwall you’re a wonder——– You lead for miles a-

round———St. Lawrence Park and your water front are the

finest that can be found——-The whole world quotes the Standard

views, The Palace knows how to amuse,  In fact Cornwall you have

gained a renown As a grand old town.  town.

second verse:

We all purchase our clothes in Dover’s fine store, Boots and shoes from Rel-

yea have style——–While Don-hee’s meats are so good you want

more, Our Post Of-fice wins by a nile——Our schools stand the test each,

church of-fer rest,  For musical instruments, Hunter is best.

Chorus
