Hemingway's Hideaway

by Kevin Stokley

lyrics

I've got my worn out copy of "Old Man And The Sea"
The tattered book is open to page 43
Sitting in a hammock
Hanging on a warm Havana breeze

I spend my nights beneath a blanket of stars
Sailors saddle up to the salt stained wooden bars
And talk about lost lovers and faded fishing scars

When I need to get away from it all
I come down here where the drinks are strong and tall
And no one knows my name
And no place cures my pain
Like Hemingway's hideaway

I've heard poets say there's treasure to find
That "X" marks the spot
But I think mine is marking time alone on a boat
Off the coast of paradise

When I need to get away from it all
I come down here where the drinks are strong and tall
And no one knows my name
And no place cures my pain
Like Hemingway's hideaway

And if you mix the sunny weather
Sugar cane, rum together
Everything feels better

When I need to get away from it all
I come down here where the drinks are strong and tall
And no one knows my name
And no place cures my pain
Like Hemingway's hideaway
