Surfing in a Hurricane
Written by: Jimmy Buffett and Will Kimbrough
Performed by: Jimmy Buffett

Originally from the Album: Buffet Hotel (2009)

Lyrics:
I feel like goin’ surfin’ in a hurricane
I feel like makin’ love in the pourin’ rain
I ain’t afraid of dyin’
I don’t need to explain
I feel like goin’ surfing in a hurricane.

We left the bar last night about half past eight
Down to the Alabama shore, not the Aloha state
This storm may turn, it was too late
And we ain’t the kind to evacuate
The impact zone is callin’ out my name

Sea monster night pulling nothing but pride or fear
St Christopher might not get our asses outta here
Flooded roads and trailer parks
And maybe a tornado lurkin’ in the dark
The perfect life to ride into eternity

I feel like goin’ surfin’ in a hurricane
I feel like makin’ love in the pouring rain
I ain’t afraid of dyin’
I don’t need to explain
I feel like goin’ surfin’ in a hurricane.

The waves were hard, the seas were high
Wicked thunderbolts flashed in my eyes
We swam out to the sandbar in the dark
Howling at the moon, cussin’ at the sharks

I made the first drop and my cojones were in my throat
Then the second wave launched me like a rocket
That’s all she wrote
Upside down, water on the brain
End on the bottom, but feelin’ no pain
Screamin’ like a deamon, paddlin’ out again

I feel like goin’ surfin’ in a hurricane
I feel like makin’ love in the pourin’ rain
I ain’t afraid of dyin’
There’s no need to explain
I feel like goin’ surfin’ in a hurricane

I feel like goin’ surfin’ in a hurricane
I feel like makin’ love in the pourin’ rain
I ain’t afraid of dyin’
I got no fear in my brain
I feel like goin’ surfin’ in a hurricane

I feel like goin’ surfin’ in a hurricane

Let’s paddle out boys
Killer surf …and I mean killer
Let’s go!

Surfin’ in a hurricane
Surfin’ in a hurricane
