Jimmy’s Notes:
From the album “Meet Me In Margaritaville”: This has always been one of my favorite songs by one of my heroes, Fred Neil. “Goin’ where the weather suits my cloths” to me is one of the best song lines ever written. However, as we start to run it down, we take it a little more to a Bossa Nova feel. I have always done this song straight-forward, the way I heard Fred do it and how Jerry Jeff Walker taught it to me, but this fresh coat of Brazilian paint feels pretty good.

Lyrics:
Everybody's talking at me
I don't hear a word they're saying
Only the echoes of my mind

People stopping staring
I can't see their faces
Only the shadows of their eyes

Chorus
I'm going where the sun keeps shining
Thru' the pouring rain
Going where the weather suits my clothes

Backing off of the North East wind
Sailing on summer breeze
And skipping over the ocean like a stone

Repeat Chorus
