  • False echos
  • By: jimmy buffett
  • 1996
  • The skies over cuba turned pink with the light
  • And the waterfront ritual began to ignite
  • All the ships in the harbor were warmed by the sun
  • Twenty-fifth of november, 1921
  • On the old chicamauga the signal jacks flew
  • And the message they spelled out caused a great bally hoo
  • Every ship in havana then hoisted away
  • All the pennants were a flyin on my dads first birthday
  • Enduring echoes call out from his past
  • Time aint for savin no times not for that
  • Chasing false echoes like a lost legionnaire
  • He waltzes on memories while he fades like a flare
  • Now his storybook childhood was not make believe
  • On the decks of a tall ship he was taught to achieve
  • Witnessed storms and starvation natural wonders and force
  • Oh the life of a sailor steers a wanderin course
  • Enduring echoes call out from his past
  • Time aint for savin no times not for that
  • Chasing false echoes like a lost legionnaire
  • He waltzes on memories while he fades like a flare
  • Well now life throws us curve balls we never can reach
  • He gave up the ocean but he lived by the beach
  • Where he raised up his family taught us all to survive
  • Then the wind went away in 1995
  • [whistle/violin break]
  • Now the old chicamauga has slipped by the ways
  • She lies on the bottom of old mobile bay
  • Where the ghosts of his father and his brother are near
  • They protect him and tell him theres nothin to fear
  • Cause its family tradition we take to the sea
  • And its a time in the future for cameron and me
  • Enduring echoes call out from his past
  • Time aint for saving no times not for that
  • Chasing false echoes like a lost legionnaire
  • He waltzes on memories while he fades like a flare
  • The skies over cuba were warmed by the sun
  • Twenty-fifth of november 1921
