Winnebagos and airstreams, all headed north in a line
friends and relations, on a coastal vacation
well I sure hope they've had a good time

There going back to the race, back to the place
they'll come down again there's no doubt
It's the end of the season, makes a pretty good reason
for me to be headed down south

Down to laguna madre, cruisin' over the causway
There's nobody here, the coast is all clear
It's my kinda of day on Padre

7 eleven is empty, there's no t-shirt's for sale
the condo's are clearin', they boarded there windows
There ready for the winds first gale

I guess I'm here because I'm a nautical dreamer
I ain't gotta a boat, so I'll take the isle
Makin' friends with the seagulls, pickin' up sea shells
not another tourist for miles

Down in laguna madre, cruisin' over the causway
There's nobody here, the coast is all clear
It's my kinda of day on Padre

Think I'll see what's shakin' at Port A
Stop at Shorty's, have me a round
With one ol'skipper, a few bay shrimpers.
They've been talkin' 'bout the fish they'd found

Then the old man raises his glass
and tremble's as he speaks of the pier
Say's, Now there all gone you know, but not to long ago
remember when the tarpon where here

Down in laguna madre, cruisin' over the causway
There's nobody here, the coast is all clear
It's my kinda of day on Padre

Think I'm gonna stay on Padre
It' my kinda of day on Padre

    General CommentThis is a song about the South Texas coast during the off season. I love Port Aransas when the tourists are all gone so I can relate to this song.

    I’ve seen Larry Joe play at the Back Porch in Port A a few times and he is always entertaining. Last year my wife and I were invited to a private LJT concert and it was great. Larry Joe and his band spent a lot of time talking with us in between their sets. After 30 years of going to concerts, clubs, and bars to see different artists play it was probably the best show I have seen to date, thanks LJT!

    If you want an interesting place to get a beer, stop in at “Shorty’s” on the island.
