Barbados, song by Poco

Anyone remember the 70's group Poco? I do but don't recall their doing a song called Barbados. Catchy tune. Here are the lyrics:


from The Ultimate Collection

There's a wind that blows

On the southern sea

And it whirls around

Deep inside of me

Always bringing me up

Never letting me down

I had a dream I was on my way

To Bridgetown

I've seen ships that sail

Each and every day

And when they start up their engines

They steal my heart away

Barbados, I'm another one born to run

Barbados, I need another sweet taste of rum

I been sailing on this raging sea

The higher the venture the better I'll be

That's not Poco in the YouTube vid. Just Paul Cotton, who has been in and out of the group several times. He did write the song, though.

The song first appeared on Poco's "Legends" album in 1978.
