"Somewhere In The Sun" as written by Kenneth Chesney, Tim Holt, Danny Tucker and Daryl Hobdy....
Stuck here at a Holiday Inn near Austin, Texas
Seen all the road that I want to see
God I hate the snow, they even canceled the show
Makes me long for where I really want to be

Oh I wish I was there tonight on Jost Van Dyke
Sipping on some Foxy's Firewater rum
Or kickin' back with Ivan
With all my friends down in the islands
Wouldn't take much for me to up and run
To another life somewhere in the sun

Got cold fajitas and only one channel on the TV
Andy and Barney on Nick at night
Seen an ad for Mexico, God I really want to go
Anywhere out of mind and out of sight

Oh I wish I was there tonight on Jost Van Dyke
Sipping on some Foxy's Firewater rum
Or kickin' back with Ivan
With all my friends down in the islands
Wouldn't take much for me to up and run
To another life somewhere in the sun

Here's a toast to you on the coast and the sailors out at sea
Drink your ales, hoist your sails
Ride the winds and think of me, 'cause

Oh I wish I was there tonight on Jost Van Dyke
Sipping on some Foxy's Firewater rum
Or kickin' back with Ivan
With all my friends down in the islands
Wouldn't take much for me to up and run
To another life somewhere in the sun

Somewhere in the sun

    General CommentFoxy's is actually a bar on the island (Jost Van Dyke). Foxy's Firewater Rum initially was distilled and bottled in Trinidad but now is bottled by the Cruzan Distillery in St. Croix, USVI. Thing is, Foxy's & Jost Van Dyke are part of the British Virgin Islands, Cruzan is distilled in the US Virgin Islands.

    General CommentIt's Jost Van Dyke and Foxy's Firewater Rum... the former being an island in the carribean and the latter being a company on the island

    General CommentTo my dad: "Here's a toast to you on the coast and the sailors out at sea. Drink your ale hoist your sails... ride the wind and think of me"
    I inherited his love for the sea and boats, but not his hate for snow - it's also water in some way :-)
