nancyjo Lyr Req: Hurricane songs (60* d) Lyr Add: BLOWIN' LIKE A BANDIT (Guy Clark) 17 Aug 04


How about Guy Clark's BLOWIN' LIKE A BANDIT

Lawdy mercy land o goshen
Shades of grey out on the ocean
Don't you dare take that ship out to sea
For the high seas are runnin'
You will sure `nuff be done in
If you dare that that boat out to sea

`Cause out there in the Gulf
The wind's blowin' like a bandit
I'm talkin' `bout a hurricane
and your riggin will not stand it

There's an ill wind a blowin'
You better get back to the mooring
Don't you dare take that boat out to sea
You better take a weather warning
You'll be shark bait in the mornin'
If you dare take that boat out to sea

You better give up on that shrimpin'
You just might come home a limpin'
Don't you dare take that boat out to sea
You better not make one more drag
You gonna wind up in a bag
If you dare take that boat out to sea

And then there's Randy Newman's LOUISIANA 1927
