lyrics

I found myself on the wrong side of town,
With the wrong sorta crowd & the wrong kinda gal.
Thought to myself, “It’s time to change my ways.”

Bought a fishing pole & a bucket hat,
With the last two dollars that I had.
Turned to sweet Aibelene, and said “Fare Thee Well.”

I hadn’t the heart to steal a mare,
So I took a boat on out of there.
Set our course for the Virgin Mary Islands.

Then it was thirty days since I’d left town,
I stepped on the beach & looked around,
At once, I knew my place.

My place was there.
Oh, I swear.

Me & the sun we go hand-in-hand,
So I took a job at a beach-side stand.
It was work. Hard work. Hardly-working.

But after some time I ran into some crime,
And the judge told me “If you stay you’ll die,
So get out of my town & don’t look back."

See you around,
I’m skippin’ town.

I set out on my own,
Found a place to be alone,
With the red & gold & blue,

Of the setting sun, shows what’s to come when day is new.
Maybe I can erase some of the past mistakes,
That’ve kept me blue.

about

Isaak Salomon Vancouver, British Columbia

Hello. I’m a folk singer.

I like things a little country, a little poppy, and always groovy. I value honest songwriting and good guitar playing. I record my own albums, and spend a lot of time tinkering with them.

I’ve recently pulled up my roots and moved to Montréal in search of new musical ground. I’m excited to assemble a new band, and to write some more tunes.

Over & out,
IS
