See this prehistoric riverbedSee wbelow all the follies ledDown by the water andDown by the old major dragI was just some tow-head teenFeeling round for fingers to gain in betweenDown by the water andDvery own by the old primary dragThe seaboy rubs me wrongThe summer swells anonSo knock me dvery own, tear me upBut I would bear it all damaged just to fill my cupDown by the water andDvery own by the old primary dragSweet descend this rabble roundThe pretty little patter of a seaport townRolling in the water andRolling dvery own the old main dragAll dolled up in gabardineThe lash-flashing Leda Of Pier NineteenQueen of the water andQueen of the old main drag
The seaboy rubs me wrongThe summer swells anonSo knock me dvery own, tear me upBut I would bear it all broken simply to fill my cupDvery own by the water andDvery own by the old primary dragThe seachild rubs me wrongThe summer swells anonSo knock me dvery own, tear me upBut I would bear it all damaged just to fill my cupDvery own by the water andDown by the old main dragDown by the water andDown by the old main dragDvery own by the water andDvery own by the old main drag
This song is about the joyful and also now foracquired life of Portlands (and America’s) essential maritime previous. The old main drag in Portland is the port location along the river. Once commercial by means of vapor powered craft, it stayed essential thru the 1920’s, essentially dying out with the advent of railroads.
This is a sad song, invoking the horrible feeling of fighting to remain afloat whilst watching beloved resides, heritages, and graceful ships sink silently into the past. A beautiful, haunting, and also uniquely Amerihave the right to homage that deserves a location amongst our biggest maritime stories. Well Done Decemberists!
