BOATS TO BUILD
WITH JIMMY BUFFET
WRITER GUY CLARK

It's time for a change I'm tired of that same ol same The same ol words the same ol lines The same ol tricks and the same ol rhymes Days precious days Roll in and out like waves I got boards to bend I got planks to nail I got charts to make I got seas to sail I'm gonna build me a boat With these two hands It'll be a fair curve From a noble plan Let the chips fall where they will Cause I've got boats to build Sails are just like wings The wind can make em sing Songs of life songs of hope Songs to keep your dreams afloat I'm gonna build me a boat With these two hands It'll be a fair curve From a noble plan Let the chips fall where they will Cause I've got boats to build Shores distant shores There's where I'm headed for Got the stars to guide my way Sail into the light of day I'm gonna build me a boat With these two hands It'll be a fair curve From a noble plan Let the chips fall where they will Cause I've got boats to build
