Sailboat for Sale

Album: 35 MPH Town (2015)
  • The legendary Jimmy Buffett features on this song, which was an idea Toby Keith's longtime collaborator Bobby Pinson, brought to the writing table. "The melody is fantastic," Keith said. "The guy swaps for the boat he's dreamed of and realizes he got swindled out of what he really wanted, which is the boat he had. I love the part about the old pirate. I put Jimmy Buffett on it and I hope it gains some legs and takes off running."
