Blame It On Buffett – Kelly McGuire

Blame it On Buffett

I love trop-rock music. It’s easy-going style relaxes the day’s stresses away and makes those boat drinks go down just a little faster. Ever day when I set down to write, I first load up iTunes and click to the beach playlist. It’s loaded with the familiar and not so familiar. One that might not be too familiar to many is a little song called Blame It On Buffett by Kelly McGuire.

Here’s a little something to help you become a little more…familiar.

Blame It On Buffett Lyrics

Somewhere I took a right instead of a left
College never sat well so I headed South Southwest
I ended up in Texas on the Gulf of Mexico
Where I learned to sail and I learned to write
About the places I wanted to go

Blame it on Buffett
He was my hero from way in the past
And I sang his songs and had island dreams
Before I ever raised a main up a mast
Blame it on Buffett
We took the road less traveled upon
And though he beat me there well I’m enjoyin’ the journey
And I love singing both of our songs

I sailed from Lauderdale down to Key Largo
Crossed the Gulf on a fast sloop and I sailed the Abacos
As a kid I read KonTiki and now all the pirate books too
There’s just so many places on my list to see
I’m goin’ crazy just tryin’ to choose

Blame it on Buffett
>He was my hero from way in the past
And I sang his songs and had island dreams
Before I ever raised a main up a mast
Blame it on Buffett
We took the road less traveled upon
And though he beat me there well I’m enjoyin’ the journey
And I love singing both of our songs

Well now fame and piles of money I’ll never see
But I love playin’ my music and thank God my fans love me
And though I’m not a handsome guy well there were ladies who were kind
And loved me through the faults I had
Well it’s been one whale of a ride

Blame it on Buffett
He was my hero from way in the past
And I sang his songs and had island dreams
Before I ever raised a main up a mast
Blame it on Buffett
We took the road less traveled upon
And though he beat me there well I’m enjoyin’ the journey
And I love singing both of our songs
