  • I know this super highway
    This bright familiar sun
    I guess that I'm the lucky one
    Who wrote that tired sea song
    Set on this peaceful shore
    You think you've heard this one before

    Well the danger on the rocks is surely past
    Still I remain tied to the mast
    Could it be that I have found my home at last
    Home at last

    She serves the smooth retsina
    She keeps me safe and warm
    It's just the calm before the storm
    Call in my reservation
    So long hey thanks my friend
    I guess I'll try my luck again

    Well the danger on the rocks is surely past
    Still I remain tied to the mast
    Could it be that I have found my home at last

  • John from Kirkland, Wa"Retsina" is a Greek wine with a "pine resin" taste. And trust me - it is an "acquired" taste! The first time I had this wine, I almost choked! But, now I love it!
