Tim Buckley: Venice Beach

Random Venice Beach video of the week: “Venice Beach – Music Boats by the Bay ” by Tim Buckley and Larry Beckett.

The song, written during Buckley’s Starsailor era, was performed live in 1970, a studio version was never released. Buckley, likely best known for his song “Once I Was“, died in 1975 of a heroin overdose. Buckley was also the father of the late musician Jeff Buckley.

Lyrics “Venice Beach”(Music Boats…)

White heat of swaying day
Dark slap of conga cries,
“Come out and breathe as one”
Salt sea and fiddles drone
Out on the dancing stone
While the Santa Anas blow
Sing the music boats in the bay

Here sunrise was stinging
For all of our longing

If you can’t give me comfort
At least come for real
On the long ???

You’ll see old crazy Ed
Dressed in his sheets of white
dragging from pier to pier
Hustling his drinking dimes
All for the life of crime
Until it cracks his heart
Sing the music boats in the bay

I swear there is summer

And if you can’t, it is comfort

Now one is for one alone
Two for the tug of war
Three for the shining guard
Four for the hands of man
Five for the loves that stand
Six for our rolling bones
And the music boats in the bay

Here sunrise was stinging
For all of our longing
