Song of the Week

I have no idea where last week went to. I know that I posted about my purse, but I so didn't post a song of the week.


Well this week I'm kinda doing a repeat. I know i know... you want to hear something different. but I was listening to this song this morning and it got me thinking about my Dad... and it's my blog. So I'm posting it.

This week is a Kenny Chesney song called "Boats". Like i said, kinda repeat cause I did a different kenny song just 2 weeks ago, and off the same album. This is actually one of 2 songs that really remind me of him. Maybe i'll play the other one some day.

This song makes me think of my dad. He wants to just pick up and move onto a boat and sail around the world. Sometimes I laugh at him and sometimes I think I want to join him and mom.

Kenny Chesney

Ol' Joe's got a Boston whaler
he bought in Key Biscane
He swears since the day he's got her
she's been nothing but a pain
when the sun's at his back
and the winds in his face
it's just him and the wheel
he wouldn’t take a million for the
way it makes him feel

vessels of freedom
harbors of heeling

Newport is where John hung his hat
til he lost his wife Jo
now forty feet of sail antique
is where Ol' John calls home
he watched his life pass before his eyes
in the middle of a hurricane
came out alive on the other side
that’s where "the other side" got its name

vessels of freedom
harbors of heeling

twenty years of a landlocked job
was all that tom could take
sitting at his desk
all alone and depressed
says this just cant be my fate
went home that night and told his wife
you can tell all of your friends
it's been real but it ain't been fun
gonna get us one of them

vessels of freedom
harbors of heeling

vessels of freedom
