Broadjam Member Reviews

Interesting tune. More Jazz than pop. Nice instramentation unique melody. Very unique descriptive lyrics which really told a story nicely done. Could see this in a film or even commercial. Vocals are very good. Nice job!

    - Jay Gross

Interesting guitar intro - captivating. Tight band - some great rhythmic arrangements here with drum, keyboard. Lyrics are mellow and relaxing to listen to - sea dream, breeze, mellow, sun low, golden, stay a while. Folks and gumbo - very americana feel to this song. A beautiful feel good song enhanced by these appealing lyrics.

    - J Edna Mae


Music & Lyrics By Bill Dake
Copyright: 2010 billdakemusic ASCAP

I was stranded in a small Coast City
Old wheels had up and died
Found some shelter and a nice cold beer
To keep me mellow
Sun was low
Windows were golden
Thought I'd stay awhile

Started roamin' through the crisp cool evenin'
In search of salty air
Found a path that led to folks cookin'
Seafood gumbo
Friendly souls, asked me to share some
Sweet nectar from the grape vine
Steamed treasures from a low tide

Soon the stars were winkin'
Makin' a bed for the crescent moon
Naked toes were sinkin'
Into the grey-silver sand dunes

Soft landed in a small Coast City
Relaxed and sleepy-eyed
Dancin' crazy with some girl
In her autumn colors
Sparks floatin' up to meet the heavens
Mars' embers burnin' bright
Warmin' shadows as the the tide
Slowly eases ever closer

Laughter melts to whispers
A solo guitar paints a Latin theme
Music's sweet elixir
Flavors the breeze in my sea dream

I was stranded in a small Coast City
