    Alan, don't worry: is perfect! I didn't know that "on vacation" is means the same that "on holiday"

    Sometime we need a vacation from a person or persons more than a place.

    I lowered this song by a whole step from the original and still couldn't hit that high backing vocal part. Then I looked it up and discovered that it was Linda Ronstadt singing that part. LOL!

    As a courtesy to our great hostess this week, I am going to put the lyrics for all my songs below the video, even though they are covers. And of course, if I manage to write an original, I'll do it for that as well.

    There's a little harmonica at the end. It's just a basic three-chord song, so feel free to sing along!



    I beg your pardon momma what did you say
    My mind was drifting on a Martinique day
    It's not that I'm not interested you see
    Augusta Georgia is just no place to be

    I think Jamaica in the moonlight
    Sandy beaches drinking rum every night
    We've got no money momma but we can go
    We'll split the difference and go to Coconut grove

    Just keep on talking momma I can hear
    Your voice it tickles down inside of my ear
    I feel a tropical vacation this year
    Might be the answer to this Hillbilly beer

    I think Jamaica in the moonlight
    Sandy beaches drinking rum every night
    We've got no money momma but we can go
    We'll split the difference and go to Coconut grove

    Viola an American dream
    We can travel girl without any means
    When it's as easy as closing your eyes
    And dream Jamaica is a big neon sign

    Just keep talking momma I like that sound
    It goes so easy with that rain falling down
    I think a tropical vacation this year
    Might be the answer to this Hillbilly beer

    Viola an American dream
    We can travel girl without any means
    When it's as easy as closing your eyes
    And dream Jamaica is a big neon sign

    I think Jamaica in the moonlight
    Sandy beaches making love every night
    We've got no money momma but we can go
    We'll split the difference and go to Coconut grove
    Never mind the words, just hum along and keep on going...

    Every town in Catalunya has a huge public holiday (three or four days long, at least). They are called the "Festa Major" - and many of the towns kick the Festa off (or finish them off) with an incredible tradition that would give England's Health & Safety officers nightmares for years: the Correfoc.

    This song (written especially for this week) explains what happens in a typical Correfoc. The video contains images of correfocs. But at the end of the song you can see a short video I took of the Correfoc in our town in 2015. It gives you a real feel for the event. The bombard like instruments you can hear in that section are the Gralles, I mention in one of the verses.

    If you ever come to Catalunya in summer you must try and catch a Correfoc; they are thrilling experiences.
