    Gary blocked me before I could post this in his thread:

    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 trawling 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

    so yeah, if someone could slip that in for me, I'd really appreciate it.

    Downeaster Alexa.

    Either would work.
