Long Island Man
Long Island Man all island version 6 October 20, 2010


I am a Long Island man
Where the wind and the sea meet the sand
And the sun likes to shine through the maples and the pines,
The coves and the beaches and grapevines,
There's meadows and there's trees and a gentle ocean breeze
That's why I'm a Long Island man

From Nassau to Suffolk and the forks
From Montauk to the city of New York
The North Shore has the Sound with peaceful waters all around
On the South Shore the Atlantic likes to roar
And the harbors and the bays that you find beside the waves
Are a treasure for a sailor to explore


From East Hampton to Glen Cove, Gilgo Beach to Cherry Grove
Jamesport, Patchogue, Aquebogue, East Rockaway
Westhampton to Sayville, Port Jefferson, Bayville
Amagansett, Centerport, and Hampton Bays

From Bridgehampton to Bellmore, Bayport, Blue Point and Bay Shore, Mattituck to Centre Island and Freeport
Shelter Island, Shinnecock, Fort Salonga and Kings Park
Belle Terre, Poquott, old Sag Harbor, and Northport

Long Island for when you're feeling down
Pay a visit to the ocean or the Sound
Come and take a walk with me, from the dunes down to the sea
You'll feel better when you feel the fresh salt air
And we'll find a lonely beach, where a telephone can't reach
Watch the sunset and we'll ease away our cares

From Oyster Bay to Babylon, Orient, Port Washington
Nissequogue to Wading River and Lloyd Neck
Asharoken, Rocky Point, Massapequa and King's Point
Greenport, Cutchogue, Cold Spring Harbor and Cove Neck

From Syosset to Smithtown, Sea Cliff, Seaford, Lattingtown,
Brentwood, Brightwaters, Brookhaven, and Deer Park
Garden City to Glen Head, Glenwood Landing, Riverhead,
Manorville to Mastic Beach and Island Park

Long Island will always be my home
That salt sea air is deep inside my bones
Like my fathers before me, it's where I love to be
And I hope my sons and daughters always stay
To share their sunsets on the beach where the city cannot reach
And to live their lives the Long Island way


From Setauket to Greenvale, Muttontown to Farmingdale,
Huntington to Bethpage, Brookville , and Carle Place
Locust Valley to Lynbrook, Shirley, Shoreham, Stony Brook,
Ronkonkoma, Speonk, and Fireplace

From Nesconset to North Hills, Baldwin Harbor to Hicksville,
Merrick, Mill Neck, Mineola, Munsey Park,
Commack , Copiague, and Hauppauge,
Roslyn, Sea Cliff, and East Quogue,
Medford, Melville, Middle Island, and Montauk

I am a Long Island man,
I am a Long Island man
A Long Island man
