Talking Morro Bay

Verse 1

What I call peace, is strictly peace of mind.

What I call living, is the life that I can find,

Watching otters play, from the jetty by the bay

The great rock shields my troubles far away.

 

Change

And still I’m happy when I’m up here enjoying the view,

With nothing but the sea breeze to talk to and no rose smells so sweet.

And then a tune comes to me and I try to sing

Any rhyming words that my heart can bring

And strum my guitar in time and tap my feet

 

Verse 2

The sky today seems brighter than before

Mourning dove prays, who is she praying for?

And a blue belly, does push-ups on a tree,

And an egret stands, as still as still can be

 

Change

And still I’m happy when I’m up here enjoying the view,

With nothing but the sea breeze to talk to and no rose smells so sweet.

And then a tune comes to me and I try to sing

Any rhyming words that my heart can bring

And strum my guitar in time and tap my feet

 

Chorus 1

Hey, Talking Morro bay, shining my way,

Oh the ocean breeze, nothing left to please   

 

Verse 3

So I sing this song, hoping someone hears,

And a gentle beat, tells me a crickets near.

I don’t expect a tip, but at least he sings along

SLO County is a paradise in song

 

Chorus 2

Hey, Talking Morro bay, shining my way,

Oh the ocean breeze, nothing left to please  

Hey, Talking Morro bay, shining my way,

Oh the ocean breeze, nothing left to please  

Hey, Talking Morro bay, shining my way,

Oh the ocean breeze, nothing left to please
