Well, I've always been a fisherman
since the day I finished school,
I got my Captain's Ticket,
and I tried to learn the rules;
Well, every day out on the water
DFO would get their man,
'Cause I tried to make a living,
I was always a wanted man.

Wanted man in St John's Harbour,
wanted man in Biscay Bay,
Wanted man out on the Grand Banks
as the Cowley came my way;
Wanted man up in Trepassey
and wherever it is I am,
I'm like a trouble magnet
and I'm always in a jam.

One trip we went out fishin'
with the permits that we had,
The wind was really blowin',
and the weather it was bad;
When the weather finally settled,
and we got a trip for fish,
DFO came calling, stuck it all under arrest.

Wanted man out on the water,
wanted man up on dry land,
I gotta make a livin', and do the best I can;
Wanted man up on the South Coast,
wanted man in 3NO,
It seems that I'm in trouble wherever it is I go.

I'm drivin' on the highway and I'm in a ninety zone,
Cops will try to get me, even when I'm driving slow;
There's a sixty zone in Badger,
and they hide there when they can,
They know they're gonna get me wherever it is I am.

Wanted man just west of Gander,
wanted man in Lewisporte,
Wanted man way out in Deer Lake,
wanted man in Isle aux Morts;
It seems that trouble finds me wherever it is I am,
No matter how I try, I'll always be a wanted man.

In the Fall we went moose huntin',
way down north in Area Two,
Jumped up on the Quad and went to get me bull;
But the wildlife they came calling
just inside by woody hill
Now they wanna take my rifle
fore my licence I can fill.

Wanted man in Codroy Valley,
wanted man in Stephenville,
Wanted man in Baccalieu Tickle,
wanted man on Signal Hill;
Wanted man in Rocky Harbour,
wanted man in Fleur-de-Lys,
Wanted man in New West Valley,
wanted man in Trinity.

FADING:
Wanted man in Fogo Island,
wanted man in Twillingate,
Wanted man in Bonavista,
wanted man in old Salvage;
Wanted man down in St Anthony,
wanted man down in Whiteway,
Wanted man way down in....
