[Verse 1]

A
I was listening for answers That I could not really hear
A
When the words of a wise old Indian Put a conch shell to my ear
      D
And I took off for the ocean I was searching for the coast
         A
Painting pictures of my vision With the words from grandma ghost
E
Hiding from the dragons Riding for the sea
        D
Singing ballads from my childhood "A pirate's life for me"
E
Survivors seem to function best When peril is at hand
D                                      Bm7      A
When a song of the ocean Meets a salty piece of land


[Verse 2]
      A
I was force-fed my religion But I somehow saved my smile
A
So I tapped into my instincts As I headed to'ards exile
D
Cleopatra did not own a barge But a schooner was her home
A
She has centuries of stories And there's wisdom in her bones
E
She was on a sacred mission And she told me of a place
D
Where a man can hide forever But never lose his face
     E
So I saddled up my seahorse With a fly-rod in my hand
          D                                  Bm7     A
I was not looking for salvation Just a salty piece of land

[Verse 3]
            A
Some nights Cayo Loco shimmers Like the stars up in the sky
A
And the seabirds they do touch and go’s As the world just tangos by
              D
But there are times when she is hidden Beneath the wild and crashing waves
        A
And the patron saint of lightening Keeps the sailors from their graves
E
Some say it is a blinding sword Pointing out into the sea
      D
While others say her guiding light Leads to'ards eternity
        E
Still I sit in contemplation And I just don't understand
     D                                   Bm7      A
This mysterious attraction Of this salty piece of land
        E
Still I search the constellations And the tiny grains of sand
          D                                 Bm7      A
Where the song of the ocean Meets the salty piece of land
