The Last Line
Written by: Keith Sykes
Performed by: Jimmy Buffett

Originally from the Album: Son Of A Son Of A Sailor (1978)

Lyrics:
I've given my life for songs that I sing
As a matter of fact, I've given everything
But time has come to not make a sound
Time has come to lay my burden down
Ohhh wo, ohhh wo
It's come from behind,
Now is the time for the last line.

I've managed to keep some friends on my side
And lived through the time of rumors and lies
But now is the time to rest my heart
Let some other innocent fool take my part
Ohh wo, ohh wo
It's come from behind,
Now is the time for the last line.
