Lyrics

COMMODORE PETER
Copyright 1990 Walter Salas-Humara

Published  1990 Voltone Music (BMI)

Walter Salas-Humara - voice and guitar
Richard Brotherton - banjo and supporting voice
Amy Allison - supporting voice

He’s got himself a long green boat

He’s got himself a nice size outboard

Swinging back and forth

He left the door unlocked the night before

Commodore Peter wants to know

Where are you going?

Can I take you home

Or to the market or to church

Or to a restaurant or a nightclub in St. Georges?

He gave up all he knew for the help of other folks

Skims across the water

Back and forth, back and forth

From Grand Anse beach to the village of St Georges

Commodore Peter wants to know

Repeat Chorus

He knows, he’s seen the writing on the wall

No justice at all


Commodore Peter took a guest into his house

The one he trusted above the rest

And there is no doubt and there is no fault

He left the door unlocked

Commodore Peter wants to know

Repeat Chorus
