Missing The Troubadour

Troubadour extraordinaire
You touched our hearts, shaped our lives
Changed our latitudes, changed our attitudes
Gave us a license to chill

Troubadour extraordinaire
You taught us to adjust our sails
Helped us count our blessings
And remember our dreams

I don’t want to live
In a world without daydreamin’
I don’t want to live
In a world without a tire swing
I don’t want to live
In a world without Buffett

Troubadour extraordinaire
Somewhere it’s five o’clock and fins are up
We’re the jolly mons and the brown-eyed girls
Living the sweet life, embracing salty seas

Troubadour extraordinaire
Come Monday, we know it’ll be all right
Ut and Mac still taking it all in
Nibblin’ on sponge cake, growing older, but not up

I don’t want to live
In a world without daydreamin’
I don’t want to live
In a world without a tire swing
I don’t want to live
In a world without Buffett

Troubadour extraordinaire
Always reaching for our destination
Where cheeseburgers are paradise
And Margaritaville a state of mind

Troubadour extraordinaire
Counting our blessings, playing our hunches
Our Parrothead dreams and magic are real
Forevermore we breathe in, breathe out, move on

I don’t want to live
In a world without daydreamin’
I don’t want to live
In a world without a tire swing
I don’t want to live
In a world without Buffett

Troubadour extraordinaire
You taught us to trust our intuition
To roll with the punches, play all our hunches
To aim for one particular harbour

Troubadour extraordinaire
Son of a son of a sailor, a good life all the way
Missing you so, just want you back by our side
Grace, Godspeed and Gratitude, JimmyB

I don’t want to live
In a world without daydreamin’
I don’t want to live
In a world without a tire swing
I don’t want to live
In a world without Buffett
