It's a song written by James Taylor. Jimmy thought it was fitting last night since the stage had a huge lighthouse on it. They'd never played it before last night.

Actually he played it at the New Orleans concert he had broadcast to all the movie theatres. Good song, hope he puts it on the next album with the Lyle Lovitt song.

If that's true then he just lied to a lot of people last night.

Semantics... sounds like *Jimmy* played it before (in NOLA), but "Jimmy Buffett and the Coral Reefer Band" hadn't played it before. :D

I watched the crew take it down. Pretty cool. It lowers down like a big retractable antenna and folds flat. Interestingly, the colors on the outside are fabric wrapped around the lighthouse. Makes me wonder if they change the colors (fabric) to match certain lighthouses close to where they're playing.

The reason I say that is because he said the one on stage last night was made to look like one here in SC.

Senior moments, alcohol, weed fumimg up from the audience, or maybe just trying to make each audience feel special.

He also tells every audience "We'll see ya again next year" but we know that doesn't always happen! :lol:

Wasn't that cool? You know, I was in the Walmart garden dept and they have what looks like the same light house, with a solar run light that comes on at night. Going to get it for our backyard.
