Jimmy Buffett - Incommunicado

By: Jimmy Buffett, Deborah McColl, M.L. Benoit

1980

For the Duke and Travis McGee

Travis McGee's still in Cedar Key

That's what ol' John MacDonald said

My rendezvous's so long overdue

With all of the things I've sung and I've read

They still apply to me

They all make sense in time

Chorus:

But now I'm incommunicado

Drivin' by myself down the road with a hole in it

Songs with no vibrato

Takin' the long way home

Now on the day that John Wayne died

I found myself on the continental divide

Tell me where do I go from here

Think I'll ride into Leadville and have a few beers

I think of "Red River" or "Liberty Valance"

Can't believe the old man's gone

Chorus:

But now he's incommunicado

Leavin' such a hole in a world that believed

That a life with such bravado

Was takin' the right way home

So when I finished that last line

I put the book by itself on the shelf with my heart in it

Never wastin' time takin' the right way home

I know I'm never wastin' time findin' the right way home

Chorus:

Still I am incommunicado

Livin' next door to a leg with a pin in it

Life with such bravado

Is takin' the right way home

Tryin' to make it

Tryin' to fake it

Tryin' to take it home

Tryin' to make it

Tryin' to fake it

Tryin' to take it home

I know I'm...

Tryin' to make it

Sometimes I fake it

Tryin' to take it home

All I'm doing is...

Tryin' to make it

Tryin' to fake it

Tryin' to take it home

But now I'm incommunicado...
