Koolrider | Tray Eppes


[Em][CB] x2 [A][B][C][B][B…]

Maybe if I close my eyes the pictures won’t fade as I slip back into my life I’ll save 

the wind and water and waves I trade…… for living in the country 

[Em][CB] x2 [A][B][C][D][D…]

A full sail blowing the salt-water taste…. Off the bow and across the face 

of a not so far but distant place ………..where I’m still floating.

[C][G][G][Em][Am][B][C][B][B…]

How it happens, now can steal.   The present tense can seem so real

As we try to savor but watch congeal …….. the days turn in to memory.

==[Em][CB] x2 [A][B][C][B][B…]==

[Em][CB] x2 [A][B][C][D][D…]

The time is gone I’m coming home…. The sound of breathing and feeling alone 

with the turtles and fish I will no longer roam ……until I close my eyes  

[C][G][G][Em][Am][B][C][B][B…]

How it happens, now can steal.   The present tense can be so real

As we try to savor but watch congeal …….. the days turn in to memory.

[Em][CB] x2 [A][B][C][B][B…]

So maybe if I close my eyes the pictures won’t fade as I slip back into my life I’ll save 

the wind and water and waves I trade…… for living in the country 

[Em][CB] x2 [A][B][C][D][D…]

A full sail blowing the salt-water taste…. Off the bow and across the face 

of a not so far but distant place ………..where I’m still floating.

[B][C][D][D] where I’m still floating.

note:

The Koolrider is a sailboat and our first experience of living on a boat in the 

British Virgin Islands.   Jo Ann and I enjoy snorkeling and free diving in the warm Caribbean waters.  We brought home an island attitude, which slowly faded away as we re-entered our life in Darlington Heights, Va.  We have returned to the Caribbean several times and will go again but the first time was awesome.
