Reggabilly Hill
Written by: Michael Garrett
Performed by: Jimmy Buffett

Originally from the Album: Take the Weather With You (2006)

Lyrics:
I don’t know if I was dreamin’ I don’t know if it was real
Everything was movin’ and yet everything was still
People came from everywhere and no one felt the chill
That lingered in the valley down by Reggabilly Hill
They came across the water they came across the sand
Everyone was singing Oh you should of heard the band
A song in adoration of the everlasting will
That gathered them together there on Reggabilly Hill
Chorus:
Ocean deep mountain high
And a river of blood flowed down
Pourin’ out from a wound that would not heal
So always and forever we’ll remember how it feels

The ones who had it all and the ones who’d made a name
Were walkin’ side by side with the naked and the lame
Hungry little children ate until they had their fill
Then they tumbled through the clover down on Reggabilly Hill
Chorus:
On top of the hill they were dancin’ through a fire
Whirl away the sorrow as you move a little higher
Slowly makin’ circles through the purple sky until
You could barely see ‘em wavin’ there on Reggabilly Hill
Chorus:
