The ocean brings me stories
Fills up my sails with tales for free
When practical schemes are tyin’ up my dreams
Its time to unwind in the low country

City man goes to the island
Island-man goes to the sea
It’s music to my eyes in the western skies
When the medicine man plays harmony

We go up let’s go down
Find the heart and soul of this island town
So come on down the best show in town
Oh Suzannah when the sun goes down
I sing oh Suzannah when the sun goes down

So easy to get poisoned by reality
This potion’s gonna heal me for sure
But all that medicine’s gone to my head again
I think I forgot what I was trying to cure

I’ve got my six string music box
Take it from the corner and play
Set my eyes out on the horizon
Take my heart and sail away

We go up let’s go down
Find the heart and soul of this island town
Honey you got to see the best show in town
Oh Suzannah when the sun goes down

Oh it’s my destiny
Caught between heaven and the deep blue sea
Well I guess we just saw the best show in town
Oh Suzannah when the sun goes down

Now the final light is fading
And the last song is nearly through
But there’s too many schemes that I’m still entertaining
Hell I’ll just keep dancing and bring up the moon

You can laugh you can cry
As the colors fade in the western sky
Honey you got to see the best show in town
Oh Suzannah when the sun goes down
I said oh Suzannah when the sun goes down
