The Downeaster "Alexa" - Billy Joel

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

 

And left this morning from the bell in Gardiner's Bay

 

Like all the locals here I've 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've 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've 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 tell 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
