A Salty Piece Of Land - Jimmy Buffett

I was listening for answers that I could not really hear 
When the words of a wise old Indian put a conch shell to my ear 
And I took off for the ocean I was searching for the coast 
Painting pictures of my visions with the words from Grandma Ghost 
Hiding from the dragons, writing for the sea 
Singing ballads from my childhood, a pirate's life for me 
Survivors seem to function best when peril is at hand 
D                                         Bm       A 
Where the song of the ocean meets a salty piece of land 

I was force fed my religion but I somehow saved my smile 
Tapped into my instincts as I headed towards exile 
Cleopatra did not own a barge, but a schooner was her home 
She had centuries of stories and there's wisdom in her bones 
She was on a sacred mission, and she told me of a place 
Where a man could hide forever, but never lose his faith 
So I saddled up my seahorse with a fly rod in my hand 
I was not looking for salvation, just a salty piece of land 

Some days Cayo Loco shines like the stars up in the sky 
And the seabirds they do touch and gos as the world just tangos by 
But there are times when she is hidden, beneath the wild and crashing waves 
And the patron saint of lightning keeps the sailors from their graves 
Some say it is a blinding sword, pointing out into the sea 
While others say her guiding light, leads towards eternity 
Still I sit in contemplation and I just don't understand 
This mysterious attraction to this salty piece of land 

Still I search the constellations and the tiny grains of sand 
D                                            Bm       A 
Where the song of the ocean meets this salty piece of land
