Donald Fagen - lead vocal, synthesizer; Walter Becker - guitar solo; Victor Feldman - vibraphone, piano; Larry Carlton - guitar; Bernard Purdie - drums; Chuck Rainey - bass; Tom Scott - tenor saxophone; and Timothy B. Schmit - backing vocals.

"I know this super highway
This bright familiar sun
I guess that I'm the lucky one
Who wrote that tired sea song
Set on this peaceful shore
You think you've heard this one before

Well the danger on the rocks is surely past
Still I remain tied to the mast
Could it be that I have found my home at last
Home at last

She serves the smooth retsina
She keeps me safe and warm
It's just the calm before the storm
Call in my reservation
So long hey thanks my friend
I guess I'll try my luck again

Well the danger on the rocks is surely past
Still I remain tied to the mast
Could it be that I have found my home at last
Home at last"

Enjoy!
