Broadjam Member Reviews

Nice little Buffett-influenced number with some really nice guitar work. Like the build up of lyrics from sitting doing nothing... to rum and steel drums. Daydreaming kinda tune...

I really liked this song.

Lyrics

Caribbean Blues

I've got nothing that shows
for keeping my nose
to the grind stone
And just keeping pace
with the rats in the race
got my soul worn down to the bone
I need a quick move
to a slow grove
I need to walk out of both of my shoes
I need some sweet rum
and some steel drum
and some Caribbean blues

Caribbean blues..................
Caribbean blues..................
oooo..................................


When I focus my eyes
where the sea and the sky
flow together
at that moment in time
there's no doubt in my mind
I can sail away for ever
I got my pirates map
my skippers cap
and shipmates tried and true
I need some trade winds
and some good friends
and some Caribbean blues

Caribbean blues...................
Caribbean blues..................
oooo............................
