  • I wish I was a pirate shipwreck down in Mexico
    Where the oceans turn to silver and the beaches turn to gold
    I'd make love to some senorita in that town
    I'd get on my boat and I'd sail the ocean round

    I wish I was a pirate out there under my own flag
    Running for no reason and no reason to turn back
    The salt and rum on my tongue, sails tattered and torn
    Laughing in the devil's face, riding out the storm

    Ooh, one of these days
    Gonna get off of this highway
    Wake up in Sun Bay
    With the sunshine on my face
    Saint Christopher on a silver chain
    Say a prayer and sail away

    Ooh, one of these days
    Gonna get off of this highway
    Wake up in Sun Bay
    With the sunshine on my face
    Saint Christopher on a silver chain
    Say a prayer and sail away

    I wish I was pirate on some gold ship in the night
    With nothing but the stars, the moon and faith to be my guide
    Steady as she goes with my back to the wind
    Let a cloud of cannon smoke, I disappear again Writer/s: Jon Randall, Kenny Chesney
