Vern Gosdin

Vern Gosdin (August 5, 1934 – April 28, 2009) was an American country music singer. He idolized The Louvin Brothers and The Blue Sky Boys as a young man and sang in a gospel quartet called The Gosdin Brothers. An inheritor of the soulful honky tonk style of Lefty Frizzell and Merle Haggard, Gosdin was nicknamed The Voice by his peers. He had 19 top-ten solo hits on the Country music charts from the late 1970s through the early 1990s. Three of these hits went to number one: "I Can Tell By the Way You Dance (You're Gonna Love Me Tonight)", "Set 'Em Up Joe" and "I'm Still Crazy". more »

Once again, I slip back in the gin and settle in
Oh, my bottle and me sail out to sea to meet her again
That El Café Kartoum near a quiet lagoon where we played and played
All the ladies sing your Caribbean dreams drinkin' Tanqueray.

Tanqueray, take me away
You're a time machine that I need day by day
Tanqueray, take me away
Each time that I meet her gets sweeter and sweeter
Take me away Tanqueray.

Morning comes, takes me from, another night with you
So I hurry through what I have to do to get back to you
That El Café Kartoum near a quiet lagoon where we played and played
All the ladies sing your Caribbean dreams drinkin' Tanqueray.

Tanqueray, take me away
You're a time machine that I need day by day
Tanqueray, take me away
Each time that I meet her gets sweeter and sweeter
Take me away Tanqueray.

Each time that I meet her gets sweeter and sweeter
Take me away Tanqueray
