Facts:
  • The particular volcano this song was written (loosely) about was Soufrière Hills volcano outside George Martin's AIR Studios in Montserrat. The volcano did blow - in July of 1995 and laid waste to the studio and everything else on Montserrat but not before Hurricane Hugo destroyed it first in 1989. (Stavro Arrgolus)
  • One of the places Buffett doesn't want to land in this song is "Camanche Skypark." According to Buffett lore, this is a small airport in Ione, CA near a concert site that he was playing that ruffled his parrot feathers during a night landing with a short runway and no lights. (Stavro Arrgolus)
  • Title song of Buffett's 1979 album. (Stavro Arrgolus)
  • Song Lyrics:
    Now I don't know
    I don't know
    I don't know where I'm a gonna go
    When the volcano blow

    Let me say now I don't know
    I don't know
    I don't know where I'm a gonna go
    When the volcano blow

    Ground she's movin' under me
    Tidal waves out on the sea
    Sulphur smoke up in the sky
    Pretty soon we learn to fly

    Let me hear ya now I don't know
    I don't know
    I don't know where I'm a gonna go
    When the volcano blow

    Now my girl quickly say to me
    Mon you better watch your feet
    Lava come down soft and hot
    You better lava me now or lava me not

    Let me say now I don't know
    I don't know
    I don't know where I'm a gonna go
    When the volcano blow

    (Spoken:) "Mr Utley..."

    No time to count what I'm worth
    'Cause I just left the planet earth
    Where I go I hope there's rum
    Not to worry mon soon come

    Now I don't know
    I don't know
    I don't know where I'm a gonna go
    When the volcano blow

    One more now I don't know
    (ah he don't know)
    I don't know (he don't know, mon)
    I don't know where I'm a gonna go
    When the volcano blow

    But I don't want to land in New York City
    Don't want to land in Mexico (no no no)
    Don't want to land on no Three Mile Island
    Don't want to see my skin aglow (no no no)

    Don't want to land in Camanche Skypark
    Or in Nashville, Tennessee (no no no)
    Don't want to land in no San Juan airport
    Or the Yukon Territory (no no no)

    Don't want to land no San Diego
    Don't want to land in no Buzzards Bay (no no no)
    Don't want to land on no Ayatollah
    I got nothing more to say

    I don't know
    I don't know
    I don't know where I'm a gonna go
    When the volcano blow

    Just a one more, I don't know (he don't know)
    I don't know (I don't know, man)
    I don't know where I'm a gonna go
    When the volcano blow
    (Stavro Arrgolus)
