Atlantic Highway Blues

about

A surfing song, the chords came out of nowhere as soon as I put a capo on my Telecaster, I knew that this mellow sound had to be about a surf trip down the Atlantic Highway. FYI, the Atlantic Highway, and I know it well, is a short B-road between the villages of Ewenny, Ogmore-by-Sea, and Southerndown, in South Wales - the way to the Bay! Dunraven Bay, that is.

lyrics

Atlantic Highway Blues

Gonna surf til the day is through
Gonna drive til my hands turn blue
I’m gonna set sail for a course so true
On the Atlantic Highway with you

Gonna eat sausages and beans out the can
Coz you know I’m a born again man
And I’m gonna run as fast as I can
Way down the Atlantic Highway

Gonna surf til the day is through
Gonna drive til my hands turn blue
Gonna set sail for a course so true
On the Atlantic Highway with you

I'm gonna run across the sands to the shore
Til the salt makes my eyes go sore
And I’m never gonna work no more

Gonna surf til the day is through
Gonna drive til my hands turn blue
Gonna set sail for a course so true
On the Atlantic Highway with you

Gonna eat chicken and chips in the bus
Coz you know I don't like no fuss
And it'll be just the two of us
Way down the Atlantic Highway with you

Gonna run across the sands to the shore
Til the salt makes my eyes go sore
And I’m never gonna work no more
Never never gonna work no more
No I'm never gonna work no more

On the Atlantic Highway with you
On the Atlantic Highway with you
On the Atlantic Highway with you
Way down the Atlantic Highway
