Story

I started writing this song last summer on the beach south of Daytona & finished it a couple weeks ago. This recording is from a live performance w/ A Band of Conspirators @ Guitar Pull #21. I had intended to play it in Bb but forgot to put the capo on.

Lyrics

The Yellow Umbrella

Sea birds on the water, the sand & the sea

Under the yellow umbrella, just you & me

The ones who are able keep things under control

I grin & I whistle while sea billows roll

Now, dance me, dance me on the water

Dance me, dance me on the sea

Dance me, dance me with no quarter

Dance me, dance me, dance me

Till I can't get back no more

The strong ones who hover over water & land

Fear neither death nor the outrages of man

Someday we'll be like them, watch it unfold

I grin & I whistle while sea billows roll

So dance me, dance me on the water

Dance me, dance me up the shore

Dance me, dance me with no quarter

Dance me, dance me, dance me

Till I can't get back no more

The yellow umbrella shines in the sun

I'm a lucky fellow, I can't be undone

At the edge of the ocean where the sea monsters dwell

It's a very old story these sea billows tell

So dance me, dance me on the water

Dance me, dance me on the sea

Dance me, dance me with no quarter

Dance me, dance me, dance me

Till I can't get back no more

Dance me, dance me on the water

Dance me, dance me up the shore

Dance me, dance me with no quarter

Dance me, dance me, dance me

Till I can't get back no more

Till I can't get back no more

Till we can't get back not more
