Peace Out was written 10 years ago last year! Wow how time flies. I recorded it when I was with the Swan Road Trio in Jimmy Wunderlich's Orbital Sound Studio with Jimmy and Scott Kraly. The first recording is a total rock and roll version. I wrote the song as my husband and I escaped New Orleans and Katrina by a mere two days...And because I got kicked out of girl scouts. My Stillwater friend Sally still, after ten years, visit's New Orleans monthly with a church group helping the folk rebuild. She suggested I do an acoustic version of the song as its a favorite of many folks who come to hear me play at Stillwater, I recorded this version in my home studio and mastered it once again at Rich Grant's studio. 

Lyrics

Peace Out Gurl Scout

Pamme Swan

I need a break from this vacation

I need a rest from this holiday

I need a day off from my day off

Need to get some help on the way

Sitting on a jet blue airline 

Katrina I can't believe my eyes

It's looking like some third world country 

Flying home over American skies

Chorus

You gotta peace out peace out peace out girl scout 

Peace out girl scout now is your time

Shine you badges Iron your sashes

Put down the hand book and read the headlines

I took a steam boat ride up the Mississippi

Now all I hear is that calliope

We left Slidel day before evacuation

I didn't want to meet no hurricane

Chorus

I got a Mardi Grau mask and a statue of Buddha

A hot rum buzz down on Bourbon Street

Life is life I don't care what color

In the human gumbo of New Orleans

Chorus

Oh every day another tribulation

Heartache and pain and misery

Pray for their souls and their salvation

Drowning in the waters of Pontratrian

Chorus

I'm sitting on this Jet Blue airline

Luck be the tear in my eye

New Orleans New Atlantis

I say a sad good bye 

I know Mardi Grau will never die

Chorus
