lyrics

Chorus:
Ain’t no doctor, ain’t no professor, I am a fool
‘Cause when she confessed her love to me
I turned and walked away
Now I’m driftin’ out to sea

Verse 1:
She’s the kind of woman who can kiss right through your soul
Make you feel young as you grow old
But I let her drift away
Now my nights are long and cold
And the wine that you pour won’t do you no good

Chorus:
‘Cause I ain’t no doctor, ain’t no professor, I am a fool
When she confessed her love to me
I turned and walked away
And now I’m driftin’ out to sea

Verse 2:
You can work half your life to fill that pot of gold
Spend half searchin’ for that diamond in the coal
Don’t you know it’s easier
To keep the sunshine in the shade
When you got a woman to put sugar in your lemonade

Chorus:
Ain’t no doctor, ain’t no professor, I am a fool
When she confessed her love to me
I turned and walked away
And now I’m driftin’ out to sea

Bridge:
And somethings are hard to explain
Like why cheap champaigne tastes so damn good and what kept me from loving you

Verse 3:
Rivers are meant to flood and canyons set the sun
Mountains covered by snow from above
Well maybe you were meant to stay or maybe you were meant to roam
But empires they fall and lovers just drag you home

Chorus:
Oh I ain’t no doctor, ain’t no professor, I am a fool
When she confessed her love to me
I turned and walked away
And now I’m driftin’ out to sea

about

Art Vandalay St Paul, Minnesota

Art Vandalay delivers a rich sound that sways and swaggers with an understated bravado. Not only does the core trio lay down their rootsy groove, but adding to the magic is local guitarist Colin Monette whose reverb soaked guitars and Chris Horgan’s sea-shanty accordion brings a whole new flavor to Art Vandalay’s distinctive sound that the Duluth News-Tribune calls "impossibly catch." ... more
