Kenny Chesney
Pirate Flag

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, make 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 with my feet hit the sand
What a long strange trip

I spent my whole life 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 gonna lost my mind
Take a sip of rum and you really would know why
Jolly Roger flying on the picnic table
Blender in the kitchen, willing 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 her makes you just wanna dance
And she loves to dance

I spent my whole life 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

I remember back home 'neath the big ol' moon
Tucked back in the woods, yeah, life was good
But here we are in a lofty barn, drinking shooting stars

I might spend my whole life running around
Still let the wind kinda blow me around
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
A pirate flag and an island girl
