Island Boy

This song is by Kenny Chesney and appears on the album Be as You Are (Songs From an Old Blue Chair) (2005).

He left Maine 'cause he needed a change,
And he was desperate to rearrange priorities,
And he thought the sea,
Would be the best place to be.

So he saved his money, sold his car,
And with his eye set on a southern star,
He got the courage to follow his heart,
He set out for a brand new start.

He's an island boy,
Now he's an island boy
Livin' his life where stress is the enemy
Now he's an island boy,
A stone's throw from St. Croix,
He's finally found his piece of serenity.

Now he tends bar, at the Old Mango,
And he see's tourists come and go,
With their pressed pants and camera case,
Too much sunburn on their face.

Now he watches the snow on CNN,
With all of his dope smokin' friends,
Just look at the Hell they must be in
He swears he won't go back again.

'Cause, He's an island boy,
Now he's an island boy.
Livin' his life where stress is the enemy
Now he's an island boy,
A stone's throw from St. Croix,
He's finally found his piece of serenity.

You know the love of his life has always been Emily,
She loves the the man she sees.

In her island boy,
Now he's an island boy
Livin' his life where stress is the enemy
Now he's an island boy,
A stone's throw from St. Croix,
He's finally found his piece of serenity.

Island boy.

A stone's throw from St. Croix.

Island boy, island boy, island boy...
