WISH I HAD A BOAT

THE RAIN COMES DOWN, THE OLD WIND BLOWS,

RIVER RISES AND THE WATER FLOWS.

WHERE ITíS HEADINí I DONíT KNOW,

WISH I HAD A BOAT SO I COULD GO.

 

SET THE SAIL INTO THE WIND,

DONíT THINK IíLL BE BACK AGAIN,

IíLL TAKE MY DOG, HEíS MY BEST FRIEND.

SAIL AWAY TO THE RIVERíS END.

 

IíM THE CAPTAIN OF MY DESTINY,

FREE TO SAIL THE SEVEN SEAS.

TAKE ME WHERE THE WATER FLOWS.

WISH I HAD A BOAT SO I COULD GO.

 

THE MOUNTAINSí FULL FROM THE WINTER SNOW,

WATERFALL TUMBLES TO THE RIVER BELOW,

WHERE ITíS HEADINí I DONíT KNOW.

WISH I HAD A BOAT SO I COULD GO.

 

USE THE LUMBER NEAR THE RIVER SLOPE,

GONNA BUILD THE FINEST BOAT,

PLANK IT TIGHT, MAKE SURE IT FLOATS,

PACK MY DREAMS AND ALL MY HOPES.

 

IíLL SAY FAREWELL TO THIS ONE HORSE TOWN,

CRUISE THE RIVER WHEN THE SUN GOES DOWN,

CATCH THE WIND WHEN IíM OCEAN BOUND.

SAIL AWAY WITHOUT A SOUND.
