Coast Of Marseilles

by Keith Sykes

from the album Son Of A Son Of A Sailor


Lyrics

I sat there on the coast of Marseilles
My thoughts came by like wind through my hand
How good it’d be to hold you again
How good it’d be to feel that way again
How good it’d be to feel that way again

Would you be remembering me
I ask that question time and again
The answer came and haunted me so
I did not want to think it again
I did not want to think it again

You make it hard for me to forget
I haven’t stopped loving you yet

When I left the coast of Marseilles
I hadn’t done what I’d come to do
I spent all the money I’d saved
And still did not get over you
No I did not get over you

Jimmy’s Note:

I believe that this is one the best songs I have ever heard. Keith Sykes wrote this years back when he was hanging around Key West, and it felt as if it had been molded for me. I never get tired of singing this song.
