Liner Notes: 

Sunday skirmish. Prompt: "COLOR" - Any color of your choosing -as in "Little Red Corvette", "Blue Suede Shoes", "Green Green Grass of Home", "Mood Indigo" or an entire rainbow!

We were in NYC recently and loved riding the ferry service out to Rockaway Beach!! Hard to believe that the beach is part of NYC.

Lyrics: 

V1:
We walk downtown to Pier 11
Board and take our seats right up on top
Heading out to a small piece of heaven
Feel the white-capped waves as they chop

First stop is Brooklyn Sunset Park
Gazing at the city's jagged skyline
To Jamaica Bay we then embark
The subtle chugging feels divine

CH:
Golden Rockaway Sun
Just a ferry ride from the city
Quite the getaway
For an afternoon with you
Golden Rockaway Sun
The beach grass growing pretty
The refreshing ocean spray
And the sky so blue
Golden Rockaway Sun
Golden Rockaway Sun

V2:
We share a frozen lemon ice
Watch the people playin' havin' fun
Walkin' in the sand feels oh so nice
Then incoming tide sends me on the run

CH:
Golden Rockaway Sun
Just a ferry ride from the city
Quite the getaway
For an afternoon with you
Golden Rockaway Sun
The beach grass growing pretty
The refreshing ocean spray
And the sky so blue
Golden Rockaway Sun
Golden Rockaway Sun

Oh, wow... this makes me so homesick for LI. It's where I'm usually found I August, but, uh... not this year. That line about "frozen lemon ice" is perfect. No NY summer is complete without one! This is a beautiful tune full of vivid details. Great job.

This feels very summery, your words, music and vocals all combine to tell a lovely story. PS you do amazingly good harmonies!

I really love all the nuances details that take me right on the beautiful getaway journey enjoying a lemon ice with you! I love the choppy guitar that captures the chop of the waves! Such great images and what a wonderful chorus! Love that gorgeous melody and your awesome harmonies! Fabulous song and amazing skirmish!

This sooooooo sounds like the beach, those harmonies especially. Now I need some mellow, relaxing, sand between your toes, sun beach time. Next week! <3

I really like the guitar strumming pattern, sort of like waves lapping the shore.beautiful images, I can picture the day. Very nice. Harmonies.

Good lyric that creates some detailed imagery in my mind and nice vocals and guitar to bring it all together.

Really nice work with the prompt! You build a world with this song, the lyrics are vivid, the strumming has a bit of tension to it that we are just waiting to break which we get with the chorus, and those vocals! Man, I love the harmonies, they add so much to an already fantastic song. Really nice work!
