  • Son of a son of a sailor
  • By: jimmy buffett
  • 1978
  • As the son of a son of a sailor
  • I went out on the sea for adventure
  • Expanding the view of the captain and crew
  • Like a man just released from indenture
  • As a dreamer of dreams and a travelin man
  • I have chalked up many a mile
  • Read dozens of books about heroes and crooks
  • And I learned much from both of their styles
  • Chorus:
  • Son of a son, son of a son
  • Son of a son of a sailor
  • Son of a gun, load the last ton
  • One step ahead of the jailer
  • Now away in the near future
  • Southeast of disorder
  • You can shake the hand of the mango man
  • As he greats you at the border
  • And the lady she hails from trinidad
  • Island of the spices
  • Salt for your meat, and cinnamon sweet
  • And the rum is for all your good vices
  • Haul the sheet in as we ride on the wind
  • That our forefathers harnessed before us
  • Hear the bells ring as the tight rigging sings
  • Its a son of a gun of a chorus
  • Where it all ends I cant fathom my friends
  • If I knew I might toss out my anchor
  • So I cruise along always searchin for songs
  • Not a lawyer a thief or a banker
  • But a son of a son, son of a son
  • Son of a son of a sailor
  • Son of a gun, load the last ton
  • One step ahead of the jailer
  • Im just a son of a son, son of a son
  • Son of a son of a sailor
  • The seas in my veins, my tradition remains
  • Im just glad I dont live in a trailer
  • - notes:
