One Particular Harbour

Jimmy Buffett

Chorus    Ya Ra,    Te Natura    Me Aroja,    Te A Ne    2x

I know I don’t get there often enough, but God knows I surely try
It’s a magic kind of medicine, that no doctor could prescribe

I used to rule my world from a pay phone, ships out on the sea
But now times are rough, and I got too much stuff, can’t explain likes of me

But there’s this one particular harbour, so far but yet so near
Where I see the days as they fade away, And finally disappear

   But now I think about the good times
   Down in the Caribbean sunshine
   In my younger days I was so bad
   Laughin’ about all the fun we had

   I seen enough to feel the world spin
   Mixin’ different oceans meetin’ cousins
   Listen to the drummers and the night sounds
   Listen to the singers make the world go ‘round


Repeat Chorus    2x

Lakes below the mountain, flow into the sea
Like oils applied to canvas, they permeate through me

And there’s that one particular harbour, sheltered from the wind
Where the children play, on the shore each day, and all are safe within

Most mysterious calling harbour, so far but yet so near
I can see the day when my hair’s full gray, and I finally disappear
