Wiskey Island - Denny Carleton lyrics


The story I tell, hidden mystery
Of people rocks and sand,
Steal and salt, nature flowing free;
Hear the tale of Whiskey Island.

Lorenzo Carter was the first to settle there.
Then came Dave and Gilman Bryant;
Distilled whiskey, fought mosquitoes and snakes.
Thus came Whiskey Island.

Then came the Irish who lived and lie there,
They struggled to make a dollar.
They worked real hard, Sunday went to church.
Hooray for Whiskey Island.

Railyards, factories, steam driven ships,
Changing the Island forever;
Shanties of tar and tin in the Great Depression;
Hoovervile on Whiskey Island.

Queen Ann's Lace, willows to the north;
Cottonwood, doves and swan,
Sunfish Pond, Monarch Butterfly
Exist on Whiskey Island.

Woods and weeds, dogs and deer;
Seagulls circle the station,
The Coast Guard's pride, broken men have called home
Here on Whiskey Island.

Moonscape of sand dunes, rock piles to the south,
Six hundred miles of salt mines,
Dinosaur hullets, add to the ambience.
Pyramids on Whiskey Island.

Lakefront park, pleasure seeking boats;
The way is open at last,
People may come and see the Island's history.
Come to Whiskey Island.
