Each month (more or less), we will install a lyric sheet here for a Shrimp City Slim original song that might be timely.

I was a vagabond in South America late 1975 into spring 1976.  My journey started in Bogota, Colombia and I made it all the way to La Paz, Bolivia before the money really began to run out.  A lot of fun and adventure every step of the way.   Here is a song I started while in Peru.  Why is there a slight aroma of imperialism in the very concept of "Peace Corps"?

MISTER PEACE CORPS  (words & music: Gary Erwin, copyright 1980, published by Blue Chasqui Music (BMI).

Chorus:  Mister Peace Corps, please dame la rubia / I'm on my own / The Andes get cold in the fall / Mister Peace Corps, please mandame la lulu / Warmer than wool / lighter than fleece / as free as the breeze / sent to bring me modernity

Soy de raiz huancaina / know my country ways / Proud to say I'm from the march of centuries / We were once the Imperial Order born on high / Life in the clouds / The world dared not speak aloud

I've turned my eyes to the capital / Governments stumble and fall / God is bliss but is there finesse to history? / I've got no use for it anyway / Love my country ways / Sun fires the face / of earth braced for meditation

Chorus:  Mister Peace Corps, please dame la rubia / I'm on my own / The Andes get cold in the fall / Mister Peace Corps, please mandame la lulu / Warmer than wool / lighter than fleece / as free as the breeze / sent to bring me modernity
