I know most might not be into this but she recently died and she could make paint peel with that voice!

My father experienced jimmy at the start. I've grown up with every album he put out until mid 80's when i started adulting and was poor so didn't have money to buy music. On the boat as a kid with an 8 tracks every summer weekend/week long camping trips. Hell dad even had him on reel to reel. He is part of who i am. Only one other singer has hit this hard for me... Waylon. Same set up. Part of my being. I know its stupid to be emotional about a singer you never met but when it is so much a part of who i was and am it seems bad not to feel it. I'm not just some 'kid' who bought into it after the alan jackson song - which is awesome- he was literally part of my everyday life as long back as I can remember from the mid 70's on. Coconut Telegraph was my first jimmy album i bought on my own when I was about 16 or so. Had to save allowance for a few weeks. I was not ready for this. Jimmy should have lived longer. I only understood the lyrics to Island in my early 40s and that is what started me to become the me I needed to be not the one everyone else (ex wives included) thought I should be. I drove a lot for work and if you've done that you now there is a lot of time for introspection.

I needed him for another 10-20 years. Just f....

Bob Barker didn't go over 100 and Jimmy Buffet died on a summer party weekend so there is proof a higher being.

Be well my friends and after you spay or neuter your pet please make a margarita this weekend.




Island I see you in the distance
I feel that your existence
Is not unlike my own
Island they say no man is like you
They say you stand alone
Sometimes I feel that way too
Is it the need for love?
Heart and soul accompaniment
That seems to make me different from you
Well I tried to book passage, but you have no ports
And I tried to sail in but your wind and waters
Tore my sails and broke my oars.
Island I see you in the moonlight
Silhouettes of ships in the night
Just make me long that much more
Island I see you in all of my dreams
But I'm a man with no means to reach your distant shore
When the need for love
Heart and soul accompaniment
That seems to make me different from you
I've tried to build bridges
But they all fell down
I've taken to the air on wings of silver
But always hit the ground
Well I tried to book passage, but you have no ports
And I tried to sail in but your wind and waters
Tore my sails and broke my oars.
Island I see you in the moonlight
Silhouettes of ships in the night
Just make me long that much more

And across from the bar
There’s a pile beer cans
That’s been there 27 years .
Imagine all the heart aches and tears in 27 years of beers ….

So many lyrics just stick in your head ….,
