Café Down On Water Street

 Schooners through the highways rock

Fight the way to the St. John’s dock

Cross the road old friends to meet

At the cafés down on water street

At the cafés down on water street

 

Smile from someone you don’t know

Warms your heart from the riggin cove

Nestled into a well worn seat

At the café down on water street

At the cafés down on water street

 

Some islander‘ll strike up a yarn

‘bout where ya from and where ya going

Strangers or new friends you’ll meet

At the cafés down on water street

At the cafés down on water street

 

To tell ya ‘bout the island there

How a generation disappeared

To hear it all from the folks you meet

At the cafés down on water street

At the cafés down on water street

 

And up the hill you can make your way

To the Cabot Tower over looking’ the bay

To find the answers that you seek

At the cafés down on water street

At the cafés down on water street

 

The time has come for you to go

Back To the ways in the riggin cove

The mind will flash back to the seat

At the cafés down on water street

At the cafés down on water street

 

As you sail away to your old homeland

You miss the folks you miss the grand

You tell about the friends you meet

At the cafés down on water street

At the cafés down on water street

 

Schooners through the highways rock

Fight the way to the St. John’s dock

Cross the road old friends to meet

At the café down on water street

At the café down on water street
