Very deep meaning in this song. Like Sam and his home town, here in Alaska there are thousands who used to make a living on the sea that have been put out of work by our government. Look at how many crab fishermen lost out to the government and those with the money to sway laws to their benefit.
Sad times ahead...

GREAT SONG. I understand that it's about Long Island fishermen, but it rings true for my town as well, Gloucester, Massachusett s . . . . . . . the fishing industry is getting killed by the government and these guys who's only skill is fishing are hurting..... and believe me, I come from a fishing family....
