Zac Brown Band – Where the Boat Leaves From

Congratulations to the Zac Brown Band for winning the best new artist this year at the Grammys. They were beat out by Lady Antebellum at the CMA’s which I thought was a joke. Lady A is okay at best and only have one good song. Zac Brown has put out 3 greats and the whole “The Foundation” album is as good as a shot of spiced rum. So I was happy to see them get a win.

I’ve written a post on their hit song “Toes” already so we move to another great…”Where the Boat Leaves From”. A great feel good song that talks about your problems melting away in the ocean. The verse…

“Take one part sand, and one part sea, one part shade of a banana tree
The drinks they’re cold and the reggae’s hot
And I know this is the place for me”

It just smacks me in the head with what life should be like. Why does retirement seem so far away? Here is a live video…that’s not me singing behind the camera, my voice is much better. ūüôā

Where The Boat Leaves From lyrics

There’s a place, where the boat leaves From
It takes away all your big problems
You got worries you can drop them in the blue ocean
But you gotta get away to where the boat leaves from

Take one part sand, and one part sea, one part shade of a banana tree
The drinks they’re cold and the reggae’s hot
And I know this is the place for me

So get away to where the boat leaves from
It takes away all of your big problems
You got worries you can drop them in the blue ocean
But you gotta get away to where the boat leaves from

See the problem is that you’re right there
And there’s a perfectly good island somewhere
Where a ride that floats and don’t grab your coats
You won’t need them where we are going

So get away to where the boat leaves from
It takes away all of your big problems
You got worries you can drop them in the blue ocean
But you gotta get away to where the boat leaves from

Pick me up

Pick me up

Pick me up

Put me down
Down on the sand where it’s cool
Put me down
When I fall off my stool
Put me down
I’ll just sleep there til morning comes around

With sunshine and ladies and pina colodas
And Bob Marley songs that are playing
There’s a sound in my ear that I want you to hear
Soft tropical lips that are saying

Get away to where the boat leaves from
It takes away all of your big problems
You got worries you can drop them in the blue ocean
But you gotta get away to where the boat leaves from

Get away to where the boat leaves from
It takes away all of your big problems
You got worries you can drop them in the blue ocean
But you gotta get away to where the boat leaves from
