Lyrics

Sausalito Slowdown

(Neil Wise) 

 

Across the Frisco bay I found,

This winding forest road down to a sleepy old town

I could have flown right through this paradise,

But then i’d never set eyes on what the fog belies

 

Perhaps there's somethin' in this bottle of wine 

‘Cos all of a sudden I've got nothing but time 

Mystical forces, well I don't know,  

Somehow my worries have just dissolved

Could it be, I hope it's true, can I mend my ways, to be more like you?

 

Sausalito slowdown, Oh you turned me around

Sausalito slowdown, Oh Sausalito I'm found

Sausalito slowdown, Sausalito Slowdown

 

The power of the flower's a faded memory,

Can barely see the Golden Gate for the trees

Money bought their land, but not their souls,

The tides will turn & pride won't fold

Oh yeah, I know it's true, I can mend my ways, & be so cool like you?

 

Sausalito slowdown, Ah you've turned me around

Sausalito slowdown, Oh Sausalito I'm found, 

I took my pedal off the metal, my life’s overload

Forgot what I was chasin', not so long ago

The sweet damp of the forest formed some clouds in my eyes?

Or those gently lapping waves have me hypnotised

Sausalito slowdown, Ah you've turned me around

Sausalito slowdown, Oh Sausalito I'm found, 

Sausalito slowdown, No wonder folks love this town,

Thank God I found, my Sausalito Slowdown
