Praying for the Southeastern Coast

Thoughts and prayers out to all those affected by Hurricane Matthew.

Here are two songs from Jimmy Buffett referencing hurricanes.  The first is one of my favorites off of the later albums.  It is a moody song, well at least for JB.  The second is about the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.  As usual, JB dispenses some good life advice.

Savannah Fare You Well

There is something in the wind tonight
Some kind of change of weather
Somewhere some devil’s mixing fire and ice together
I got a feeling that the dark side of the moon is one the rise
Black as a crow’s featherI could stay another day or two
But what’s the use of stalling
Deep in the winter even holdout leaves start fallin’
Lately every night above the declarations of our love
I hear the road callin’

It’s such a fragile magic
A puff of wind can break the spell
And all the golden threads are frail as spider webs
Savannah fare you well

In a vision I had yesterday
It rained so hard that I drowned
While I waited for a hurricane to die down
The raging water rolling over me was wild as a heart
That love cannot tie down

It’s such a fragile magic
A puff of wind can break the spell
And all the golden threads are frail as spider webs
Savannah fare you well

 

Breathe In, Breathe Out, Move On

I bought a cheap watch from a crazy man
Floating down canal
It doesn’t use numbers or moving hands
It always just says now
Now you may be thinking that I was had
But this watch is never wrong
And If I have trouble the warranty said
Breathe In, Breathe Out, Move OnAnd it rained, It was nothing really new
And it blew, we’ve seen all that before
And it poured, the Earth began to strain
Pontchartrain leaking through the door, tides at war

If a hurricane doesn’t leave you dead
It will make you strong
Don’t try to explain it just nod your head
Breathe In, Breathe Out, Move On

[Guitar Solo]

And it rained, It was nothing really new
And it blew, seen all that before
And it poured, the Earth began to strain
Pontchartrain buried the 9th Ward to the 2nd floor

According to my watch the time is now
Past is dead and gone
Don’t try to shake it just nod your head
Breathe In, Breathe Out, Move On

Don’t try to shake it just bow your head
Breathe In, Breathe Out, Move On
