A Happy Camper in Amazing Altun Ha

 

I found another Jerry Jeff Walker’s song, Come Away to Belize, on this youtube video J

COME AWAY TO BELIZE • Jerry Jeff Walker


(CHORUS) Hey, come away to Belize with me

Show you how simple life can be
Long lazy days in the sun where it seems everyone

Has a smile when we meet
Under blue skies and emerald seas

Warm winds and those coconut trees
They say your heart never leaves

Once you've been down to Belize!

(VERSE) Daylight, the sunlight chases the grey lights

Of lingering night
Down by the beach, a lone hare and he keeps

His eye on the fish in the tide
But I hear the boats of the fisherman go

To the flats where the bonefishes run
And the folks of San Pedro are driving the same road

To start their long day in the sun

(CHORUS)

(VERSE) So, let's get a boat and some snorkels and go

On out to the reef
We'll leave the fat folks who wear shoes and white socks

With cameras back on the beach
There's no pain or sorrow down by the coral

It’s Susan and Brownie and me
And we'll fish by the reef for some snappers to eat

As we race the ray back to the beach


(CHORUS)

(VERSE) At sunset, we'll go sit way out on the old deck

Till the pink light is gone
From a funky old bar, I can hear a guitar player

Playing a down island song
The moon on the water with a piña colada

Is something you just got to see
And that's when you start to notice your heart

Has fallen in love with Belize

(CHORUS)
