  • Well, I come from a little bitty, homegrown small town
    Smoky Mountains, nice place to hang around
    Moonshine, that's where they make it
    Put it in a jug, makes you wanna get naked
    But I jumped on a greyhound bus one night
    And took it all the way to the end of the line
    Stepped down in the sun when my feet hit the sand
    What a long strange trip

    I spent my whole life running around (running around)
    Still let the wind kinda blow me around
    Well, I dropped a note in a bottle
    To a long-legged model
    And I traded it in for a whole 'nother world
    A pirate flag and an island girl

    Well, my friends back home think I've gone and lost my mind
    Take a sip of rum and you really would know why
    Jolly Roger flying on a picnic table
    Blender in the kitchen, willin' and able
    Don't know what makes you say, "What the hell"
    But when the salt air catches a hold of that sail
    Something 'bout it makes her just wanna dance
    And she loves to dance

    I spent my whole life running around (running around)
    Still let the wind kinda blow me around
    Well, I dropped a note in a bottle
    To a long-legged model
    And I traded it in for a whole 'nother world
    A pirate flag and an island girl
    Pirate flag and an island girl (island girl)

    Well, I remember back home 'neath the big ol' moon
    Tucked back in the woods, yeah, life was good
    But here we are at a local bar and drinkin' shootin' stars

    I might spend my whole life running around (running around)
    Still let the wind kinda blow me around
    Well I dropped a note in a bottle
    To a long-legged model
    And I traded it in for a whole 'nother world
    A pirate flag and an island girl
    A pirate flag and an island girl
    A pirate flag and an island girl
    A pirate flag and an island girl
