The Downeaster 'Alexa' - Audio Idols

Well I'm on the Downeaster Alexa

 

And I'm cruising through Block Island Sound

 

I have charted a course to the Vineyard

 

But tonight I am Nantucket bound

 

We took on diesel back in Montauk yesterday

 

Left this morning from the bell in Gardiners Bay

 

Like all the locals here I have had to sell my home

 

Too proud to leave I worked my fingers to the bone

So I could own my Downeaster Alexa

 

And I go where the ocean is deep

 

There are giants out there in the canyons

 

And a good captain can't fall asleep

 

I got bills to pay and children who need clothes

 

I know there's fish out there

But where God only knows

 

They say these waters aren't what they used to be

 

But I got people back on land who count on me

So if you see my Downeaster Alexa

 

And if you work with the rod and the reel

 

Tell my wife I am trolling Atlantis

 

And I still have my hands on the wheel

 

Now I drive my Downeaster Alexa

 

More and more miles from shore every year

 

Since they told me I can't sell no stripers

 

And there's no luck in swordfishing here

 

I was a bayman like my father was before

 

Can't make a living as a bayman anymore

 

There ain't much future for a man

Who works the sea

 

But there ain't no island left

For islanders like me
