Half-Pound of Shrimp
After posting about this in the "What are you eating?" thread, I had to make it a song! Another blues (my second already, and surely more to come), but on this one I did discover some new ways to play mandolin chords.
The line was out the door at the restaurant we wanted to try the other night, so we went to a familiar joint just down the dock. It's not really "the best spot on the beach," but I've had a lot of good times there (40th birthday party 10 years ago, for example).
Half pound of shrimp, big grin on my face
Underneath the bridge, tourists don’t know ‘bout this place
Half pound of shrimp, pitcher of cold beer
Just the remedy for the hottest day of the year
Half pound of shrimp fresh off the boat
Best spot on the beach – this place gets my vote
Half pound of shrimp, nowhere to go
Peel ‘em and eat ‘em, take it nice and slow
Peel ‘em and eat ‘em, watch the sun sink low
Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.
