"Long Island Sailor On The Jersey Shore" is a melodic Honky Tonk sounding Rock Balad where a guy realizes that love is lost and love is found. A sailor lost in thought, time and sadness in the wake of a heart break is forced by bad weather into a port on the Jersey Shore where he meets three women who help him forget about his heartache.

Story Behind the Song

Te story behind the song can be found in the midst of the lyrics. This is straight forward stuff.

Lyrics

Verse 1:
These winter nights can sure be long.

Man I wonder what time it is over there

But damn girl, your hands are strong, pushing through my hair.

I almost slipped and broke my heart out in the icy cold.

I thank you, for reminding me, that it's time, it's time to move long.

Chorus:
Ain't no lady worth belly aching for -
When you're a long Island Sailor On the Jersey Shore

I said:

Ain't no lady worth belly aching for -
When you're a long Island Sailor On the Jersey Shore

Verse 2:
Last night I was out in a storm.

Man those waves through back some memories -

Of a girl, that I knew one week and three years before.

But I crossed that Manasqaun Bar.

I through my lines ashore.

Olivia, she laid my troubles down.

Lyndsay and Holly passed my heart around.

Chorus:
Ain't no memory worth mezmorizing for -
When you're a L.I. Sailor
On the Jersey Shore.

I said:

Ain't no lady worth belly aching for -
When you're a L.I. Sailor

On the Jersey Shore

(Guitar Solo)

Verse 3:
You say you'd like to take a wintry walk.

Yeah I'd like to do that.

Down the beach, while the wind's laid low.

In that air - and that ice and you're holding me oh so tight.

Chorus:
Ain't no lady worth belly aching for -
When you're a long Island Sailor On the Jersey Shore

I said:

Ain't no lady worth belly aching for -
When you're a long Island Sailor On the Jersey Shore
