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

The title track from my 1996 CD.  I remember coming up with the chorus (music and lyrics) while walking down the back stairs of our apartment at 2049 Maybank Highway (October 9, 1995).  Roger Bellow plays beautiful guitar(s) on this track.  Thanks for reading :)

BLUE PALMETTO  (words & music: Gary Erwin, copyright 1995, published by Blue Chasqui Music (BMI).

Blue palmetto / saw you standing by the sea / Blue palmetto, sing your story song for me

She took all the cookies from my cupboard / Left a letter lying on the bed / Said thanks for all the memories / But she'd really rather end up dead

She learned a mystery from her therapist / that all men are dogs are worse / Forget what the old folks tell you / Falling in love is a curse

Blue palmetto / Standing by the sea / Blue palmetto, sing your story song for me

Now palmetto, you look so lonely / standing on the edge of the sea / So strong, so silent, so solo / Sets a real good example for me / Thank you

Blue palmetto / saw you standing by the sea / Blue palmetto, sing your story song for me

Thanks, palmetto
