Downeaster Alexa

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 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

Downeaster Alexa

Bem eu estou no Downeaster "Alexa"
E eu estou cruzando através de Block Island
Eu tracei um curso ao vinhedo
Mas hoje à noite eu sou o limite de Nantucket

Nós pegamos diesel lá atrás em Montauk ontem
E saí nessa manhã ao despertar do Vale de Gardiner
Como todos os moradores aqui eu tive que vender meu lar
Muito orgulhoso em partir, trabalhei com os dedos até os ossos

Assim eu poderia dominar meu Downeaster "Alexa"
E eu vou a aonde o oceano é profundo
Há gigantes lá fora nos desfiladeiros
E um bom capitão não pode pegar no sono

Eu tenho contas a pagar e crianças que precisam de roupas
Eu sei que há peixes lá fora mas só Deus sabe onde
Dizem que estas águas não são mais o que eram
Mas tenho pessoas em terra que contam comigo

Então se você ver meu Downeaster "Alexa"
E se você trabalhar com a haste e o carretel
Diga minha esposa que eu cruzando o Atlântico
E eu ainda tenho minhas mãos na roda

Agora eu dirijo meu Downeaster "Alexa"
Mais e mais milhas da costa cada ano
Desde que me disseram que não posso vender nenhuma barbatana
E não há nenhuma sorte em pescaria aqui

Eu era um pescador como meu pai era antes
Não posso mais levar a vida como um pescador
Não há muito futuro para um homem que trabalhe o mar
Mas não há ilhas para ilheiros como eu
