Gulf & Western Music

"Gulf-n-Western music is a laid-back acoustic sound made
famous by the likes of Jimmy Buffett, Jerry Jeff Walker,
Fred Neil and Steve Goodman."

Rollin' Stoned Magazine 4/20



RAGTOP DAY
Jimmy Buffett

The five o'clock Friday blows
I let it go
I got to let it go
I put on my weekend clothes
Turn on the rock n' roll

Throw all our cares away
It's a ragtop day
It's a ragtop day

Classy little white and red turns everybody's head
My baby meets me at the Five and Dime
She's always right on time

We roll all our cares away
It's a ragtop day
It's a ragtop day

Cruise across the county line
A little dance and dine
A drive in picture show
And when the midnight's comin' down
We're headin' back to town
She lets her lovin' show

Feels like we're the only ones to see the morning sun
Sleepin' thru the afternoon and risin' with the moon
Oh don't the stars look bright
It's a ragtop night
It's a ragtop night
We'll throw all our cares away
I live for that ragtop day

Come on over here baby, get in this car, we'll cruise on down to the Gulf, & listen to some Western music, get us a cool one at the Flor-a-Bama, yeah...
