Going Back to Okinawa

Ry Cooder

Goin' back down to Okinawa 
Sorry, baby, but I can't take you 
You better stay at home in California 
There's nothing over there that you can do 

Goin' back down to Okinawa 
Ain't gonna do me like you've done before 
They treat me like a king down in Okinawa 
And I may never come back no more 

It's just an island floating in the sun 
Everybody is having so much fun 
Pretty mamas laying in the sand 
Sure to know how to treat your man 

Okinawian baby, won't you come by me ? 
Sun going down in the China Sea 
Making love on the beach all night 
Okinawa moon is shining so bright 

Folks in Okinawa sure have fun 
They get together when the working day is done 
Drinking cheap wine. and making romance 
While some old man's doing the Okina dance 

Back in the days of World War II 
Fought against the Japanese like me and you 
Everybody's worried 'bout World War III 
Okinawa's just the place where I'm gonna be 

Going back to Okinawa 
Sorry, but I can't take you 
Never coming back no more, baby
