It's early morning, northern winds are bleak
Latest news from fishing: "Fishing's weak"

But no matter any forecast
There's no time for complaints
Seawater is in my veins

Early morning, dark around my shoes
Walking down the seaside, fisherman's blues

Getting in the boat, belated by the ice
Got to use the shovel, don't think twice
Yea, I know I'm getting older
Need a foothold when I row
Not to end where seaweeds grow

Early morning, dark around my shoes
Get the engine started, fisherman's blues

Backwards out the cove, I hear the engine rap
I set the course as ever, never need a map
I've been fishing these waters since I was 13 or so
Always know just where to go

Early morning, dark around my shoes
Light a cigarette, fisherman's blues
