Cornwall sings for key workers

Published at 8:24pm 9th April 2020.

Shelle Peters and Rachel Monique, both key workers, set up the facebook page on Monday of this week as they felt that clapping was not enough and wanted to give that little something extra.

The idea was to lift the spirits of all those affected by Covid 19. A reminder that here in Cornwall we stand shoulder to shoulder in the fight this battle.

Shelle told pirate FM ‘We will be going live this evening and every Thursday to sing ‘Cornwall my Home’. The singing will be led by Will Keating in his front garden. I feel quite emotional when I think so many people will be joining us this evening, not just in Cornwall but around the world’


Cornwall My Home Lyrics

I’ve stood on Cape Cornwall in the sun’s evening glow,

On Chywoone Hill at Newlyn to watch the fishing fleets go,

Watched the sheave wheels at Geevor as they spun around,

And heard the men singing as they go underground,

And no one will ever move me from this land,

Until the Lord calls me to sit at his hand,

For this is my Eden, and I’m not alone,

For this is my Cornwall and this is my home,

I’ve left childish footsteps in the soft Sennen sand,

I’ve chased the maids there, all giggly and tanned,

I’ve stood on the cliff top in a westerly blow,

And heard the wave thunder on the rocks far below,


First thing in the morning, on Chapel Carn Brea,

To gaze at the Scillies in the blue far away,

For this is my Cornwall, and I’ll tell you why,

Because I was born here and here, I shall die.
