"Moonshine" as written by Michael Richard Brown and Graham Stuart Johnson....
Well, I've got one memory that's always been with me
My dad would get up to go surf about 4:30 or 5:00 and sometimes
I would hear him and go out in the living room and he'd be getting is board up
Out of the closet, like right in the dining

Room where he kept his board
And one day I remember the waves were really good
And um, it was really cool just getting up
And going down there, it was off-shore

I remember just sitting there watching my dad surf and from that point on
I always kinda like.. felt like a surfer, you know?
I always knew that I would definitely be surfing forever

    General CommentObscure song on an obscure album. There arnt any lyrics to it, just him talking about a memory of his father in the begining. Much like Mud Football, this track really makes me wish i wasnt born in Illinois, how lucky he must be to have these memories living in Hawaii.

    Aside from all of that though, the music is really nice. Typical jack johnson bluesy soundin melody...good stuff

    General CommentThis song is the start of the Thicker than Water dvd, and let me tell u the lyrics and the tune say a lot about every surfer. Everyone whose father surfs remembers their dad wakin up at early hours to go out, and the acoustic riff is amazing and soothin and i can hear it without thinkin of the ocean

    General Commentyeah. jack is from oahu. im from maui. hawaii is the best place on earth to grow up.

    and this song makes me feel so strange. i have memories just like this. we used to live in a little beach house when i was growing up, and my dad would wake up every morning at sunrise and hit the surf. jack johnson embodies our lifestyle here.

    and hawaii is proud of him. :)
