Some Call It Hampton Roads

(Skip Friel)

I KNOW THIS CITY BY THE OCEAN

I KNOW THIS CITY BY THE BAY

HENRY THE CAPE THEY LANDED

JAMES THE TOWN WHERE THEY STAYED 

 

A RIVER RUNS THRU

HORIZON TURNS BLUE     

ANOTHER CATCH OF THE DAY

 

CAUGHT THIS GROOVE THERE IN OLD TOWN

THE VIBES ALIVE IN GHENT TODAY 

THE BAND IS TIGHT ON THE BOARDWALK TONIGHT 

A NORTHEAST WIND’S IN MY FACE 

 

CALL IT TIDEWATER 

CALL IT HAMPTON ROADS

WE'RE ALL SEAWORTHY SOULS

 

HR LIFE AIN'T SO EASY

NOTHING HERE IS MADE OF GOLD

WITH AN EYE ON THE RISING TIDE

WHE'RE ALL SEAWORTHY SOULS

 

CALL IT SEVEN CITIES

CALL IT GREATER NORFOLK

CALL IT COASTAL VA

CALL IT TIDEWATER

CALL IT HAMPTON ROADS        

WE'RE ALL SEAWORTHY SOULS

 

WE'RE ALL SEAWORTHY 

WE'RE ALL SEAWORTHY SOULS

WE'RE ALL SEAWORTHY 

WE'RE ALL SEAWORTHY SOULS
