Last Loon on the Lake

Lyrics/Music – David Storey – 2014 Socan

I’m the last loon on the lake
Summer is gone and my friends have flown on
I’m the last loon on the lake
There’s ice in the bay and I should fly away
I’m the last loon on the lake
There’s frost on the ground and the leaves are all down

 

My friends all think I’m crazy, cause I love a frosty sunset
They’re all drunk on Marguerites hanging with Jimmy buffet
The sand boils beneath their wings the sun is a flaming ball
And I’m up here drunk on Lakeport waitin for the last leaf to fall.

 

I’m the last loon on the lake
Summer is gone and my friends have flown on
I’m the last loon on the lake
There’s ice in the bay and I should fly away
I’m the last loon on the lake
There’s frost on the ground and the leaves are all down

 

Fortunes are made fortunes are lost, the powerful come and go
And the truth ahh yes the truth depends on who you know
This world spinning out of control I can fell it slip away
It’s nice quiet up here on my own so I think I’m gonna stay.

 

I’m the last loon on the lake
Summer is gone and my friends have flown on
I’m the last loon on the lake
There’s ice in the bay and I should fly away
I’m the last loon on the lake
There’s frost on the ground and the leaves are all down
